The grand cathedral ceilings in this renovated ranch give a feeling of openness, says listing agent Donielle Cardinale McKinno of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty — making it feel like an even larger space and creating a flow that’s great for entertaining.
As you enter the 1968 home you’ll find exposed beams in the soaring ceilings in the living area that features terra-cotta floors and a fireplace with a blue tile mantel. The open floor plan leads into an updated, eat-in kitchen illuminated by skylights in the lofty ceiling, offering granite counters, stainless steel appliances and a blue tile backsplash. The adjoining dining area is flooded with natural light, McKinno says, featuring a chandelier and sliding glass doors to the yard. The three-bedroom home has 1 1⁄2 updated baths, including one with its own high ceilings, a skylight, a frameless stall shower and a soaking tub.
There’s a charming front porch on the 0.57-acre property, McKinno says, as well as a sprinkler system and a large paver patio. The covered portion of the patio serves as a sun shelter complete with a sitting area and ceiling fans, creating what McKinno calls “an outdoor room.” And she says the home comes with deeded rights to a beach that’s just a short walk away.
The taxes are $8,866. Donielle Cardinale, Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty, 631-298-0300.

The den in this four-bedroom farm ranch is topped by a cedar-paneled cathedral ceiling and brightened by skylights, says listing agent Elizabeth Bernard of Coach Realtors. The room is warmed by a wood-burning fireplace with a handsome stone mantel, Bernard says, and features a custom stone floor and built-in bookcases where the owners like to store their favorite novels and games.
It’s a comfortable family home, Bernard says, offering both formal and casual spaces — like the formal living and dining rooms and a large country kitchen with stainless steel appliances and sliding glass doors to the yard. The 1986 house has 3 1⁄2 updated baths, including one with a Jacuzzi tub and separate stall shower in the main floor master suite. The suite is a private retreat, Bernard says, set off from the rest of the home, featuring a walk-in closet and its own sitting area.
The 3,100-square-foot home offers hardwood floors, a home office and a finished basement with a wet bar and an outside entrance. There’s a front porch, rear deck and semi-inground pool on the tree-lined, 0.45-acre property. The home also has a two-car garage, a nine-zone sprinkler system and access to a private beach.
The taxes are $15,214. Elizabeth Bernard, Coach Realtors, 631-902-0358.

The cathedral ceilings are a new addition to this 1906 Victorian, says listing agent Patricia Manganaro of Century 21 Sherlock Homes. Manganaro says a renovation added a family room to the seven-bedroom home, bringing the graceful beauty of those towering ceilings, the comfort of a gas fireplace and abundant natural light from the French doors and clerestory window that offer views of the oversized yard.
The 3,026-square-foot home has three updated bathrooms and a renovated eat-in kitchen with coffered ceilings, granite counters, stainless steel appliances and a large center island. There’s a formal living room with a wood-burning fireplace and a formal dining room with built-ins and an inlaid border in the hardwood floors.
Four of the home’s bedrooms are on the second floor, and there’s a three -bedroom suite on the third floor that Manganaro says is great for overnight guests or an au-pair. The home also offers a main floor office, central air conditioning and a full basement. There’s a heated, inground pool on the 75-by-175 foot property that features an extensive paver patio, a wraparound porch and a two-car garage.
The taxes are $30,068. Patricia Manganaro, Century 21 Sherlock Homes, 516-458-3168.
