Setauket, 75 Old Post Rd., $749,900
This Postmodern was designed with the topography of the lot in mind, says listing agent Denise Voelker of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty. The house is set back from the road and built into the property, with a landscape featuring natural boulders and seasonal specimen plantings so the yard is “constantly in bloom.”
Voelker says the home’s open floor plan is a standout feature for prospective buyers, with a layout that can be tailored to fit an owner’s needs. Beams in the cathedral ceilings create an urban look, Voelker says, that is brightened by skylights and warmed by features such as hardwood floors.
The wood and granite kitchen has a center island, stainless appliances and a row of hanging glass-door cabinets that allow a view of the great room, which is heated by a wood-burning stove fireplace.
The 1995 home has four bedrooms and 3 1⁄2 baths, including a rounded master suite that Voelker says offers “views from all angles” and a tiled master bath with double sinks, walk-in shower and radiant-heat floor.
There’s a three-season sunroom and finished lower level with a bar, gym, den and outside entrance to the yard. The 1.35-acre property features a lap pool with a waterfall and bluestone patio, and is equipped with in-ground sprinklers.
The taxes are $16,942. Denise Voelker, Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty, 516-242-1339.
