Here are three “wired’’ Long Island homes for sale.
St. James, 17 Pondview, $1,124,990
The Lutron smart home technology in this Postmodern is desirable whether you’re home or away, says agent Stephanie Hagstrom of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.
A single “welcome” button turns on all the lights in the house as you enter, Hagstrom says, and a touch of the “whole house” button shuts off every light from the comfort of your bed. The vacation mode remembers the times you turn your lights on and off and replicates that pattern when you’re gone so the home won’t appear unattended.
Hagstrom says the 2007 home is also wired for sound -- in the media room, master bedroom and even outdoors. The five-bedroom home has four bathrooms and a half-bath, including a master bathroom with travertine marble, a glass-enclosed railhead shower and a whirlpool tub.
The kitchen has a slate island, counters and backsplash, two Subzero refrigerators and Miele appliances, including two dishwashers, a cooktop and oven with a warming drawer. Other amenities include radiant bamboo floors, a fireplace and an au pair suite.
The .34-acre property features an elevated paver patio overlooking a pond, a built-in barbecue island and a three-car garage. Residents have access to the community pool, gym, tennis, basketball and boccie courts, putting green, playground and clubhouse.
Taxes are $26,800. Stephanie Hagstrom, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, 631-478-7942.
Massapequa Park, 389 Rose St. $550,000
A centralized keypad controls all the smart home features of this split-level, says agent Charles Bianco of Exit Realty Premier. Bianco says the technology is “wired into the house” -- so everything from the television and stereo system to interior and exterior lighting, filtration fans and sprinklers can be controlled at the touch of a button.
There are special combination settings for mood lighting and music, Bianco says, which can be accessed by selecting the “romantic” or “party scene” options. Another button heats the exterior brick walkway to minimize the impact of ice and snow -- and an intercom doorbell rings all the phones in the house so the front door can be answered from any room.
Bianco says the owners renovated the 1956 home to include a granite, eat-in kitchen with stainless steel appliances, soft-touch cabinetry and a center island.
The house has three bedrooms and two full baths, hardwood floors, skylights and a central vacuum system. There are two attics and a finished basement with a bar and a two-person office.
The 80-by-100-foot property features a two-level deck with solar lighting, a porch and a sprinkler system. Taxes are $10,807. Charles Bianco, Exit Realty Premier, 516-444-5341.
Old Bethpage, 44 Colonial Rd., $759,000
The owners of this expanded ranch added smart home technology to make the house more comfortable and enjoyable, says agent Warren Wendt of Signature Premier Properties. Wendt says the high-tech features were incorporated as part of a larger renovation, enabling the owners to control the lighting, ceiling fans and even the gas fireplace with a smartphone.
There’s a surround sound system in the wood-paneled ceilings, and the home has a dual heating system with both oil and hydronic heat, which Wendt says helps control not just the temperature of the home but the moisture levels and air quality as well. There’s also a 250-gallon propane tank that fuels the stove, fireplace and outdoor barbecue.
Built in 1958, the house has four bedrooms and three full baths — including a master suite with his-and-hers closets and pocket doors to a room with a Murphy bed. The eat-in kitchen features high-end appliances, Wendt says, as well as a granite island and countertops and a wine refrigerator. The home also offers hardwood floors, a skylight and a second kitchen in the finished basement.
There’s a porch and patio on the 63-by-94-foot property, which is equipped with an alarm system, a generator and inground sprinklers. Taxes are $16,939. Warren Wendt, Signature Premier Properties, 917-251-4813.
