Much thought went into the cupola that sits atop the heated three-car garage, which also boasts barn doors from Massachusetts. The cupola was a birthday present, says the listing agent. It features a lantern, which the owners say they wanted to look somewhat nautical and in the theme of a widow's watch. The copper horse weather vane is representative of Marley the horse, which belongs to the couple's daughter. A second cupola -- a smaller version of this one -- is on the shed. As for the 6,000-square-foot house, it was built in 1937. Restored inside and out, it's a period home with modern amenities, the agent says. Features include detailed molding, three fireplaces and French doors as well as six bedrooms and six bathrooms. Outside on the manicured two-acre property, there is a mahogany deck and an in-ground heated gunite pool. Carolina Boucos, Daniel Gale Sotheby's International Realty, 516-835-1804

When the homeowner conceptualized this 4,200-square-foot waterfront Postmodern, she followed feng shui principles, incorporating a cupola into the design. Set above the master suite, the cupola is visible from inside. It lets light in during the day, and on a clear night the stars come into view, says the listing agent. Other features of the house include a two-story turret, two fireplaces, wood floors and 8-foot raised panel doors. With lots of windows, views of the Long Island Sound are afforded from most rooms. The kitchen is outfitted with granite countertops and GE Monogram stainless-steel appliances. Of eight rooms, four are bedrooms, plus there are two full bathrooms and two half-baths. A little more than 2 acres, the property has 162 feet of waterfront. Dina Powers, Coach Realtors at Mount Sinai, 631-612-1954

Custom built in 2007, this house was designed with a wraparound porch and a cupola to give it a Victorian flair. Interior features include an open floor plan with oak floors and imported tiles as well as crown molding, wainscoting, two fireplaces and French doors. The eat-in kitchen has cherrywood cabinets and stainless-steel appliances. There are five bedrooms, including a master suite with a two-person Jacuzzi tub in the bathroom, and a balcony overlooking the water. The house has two other bathrooms as well. Set on a deep and wide canal, the 64-by-126- foot property has bulkhead and a 20-by-40-foot boat slip. The elevation is high enough that water did not make it into the house during superstorm Sandy, the agent says. Mary Maragna, Douglas Elliman Real Estate, 516-698-8532
