Sands Point, 8 Round Hill Lane, $1.399 million
Garden views on this tiered and wooded one-acre property, as well as year-round sunsets, are part of the sunroom of this midcentury expanded ranch. In fact, the homeowners say the indoor-outdoor versatility makes the sunroom one of their favorite spots in the house.
Accessible from both the living room and kitchen, it has four sets of sliding glass doors, which when left open, are substituted by built-in sliding screen doors. Cool breezes waft through in the warmer months, while the stone fireplace in the living room creates a warm and cozy atmosphere when the air is crisp. And with a glass ceiling on the sunroom, the owners say potted plants and flowers thrive.
Other interior features include wood floors and mahogany built-in shelves in the living room. The layout also has a second-level family room with skylights, four bedrooms, three bathrooms and a half-bath. Since the 2,857-square-foot house is U-shaped, garden views are afforded from every room, says one of the listing agents. Total taxes, including a village tax, are $30,101.
