Most of the property lies in the front yard of this Locust Valley cottage, whose seller has hung a hammock. (The hammock’s staying.) There’s a new patio on the side of the Baldwin Avenue house, which is on a 50-by-150-foot lot. On the market for $489,000, the 1940 home is 1,100 square feet. “It’s adorable,” says Julie Accetta, who is listing the property on behalf of Shawn Elliott Luxury Homes & Estates (516-922-2878). The owner of the three-bedroom, two-bath house, which features a stone fireplace, has installed hardwood floors, lifted the ceilings, installed new appliances and updated the bathrooms.

It is one of several Locust Valley homes with open houses this weekend:
