If this winter's record snowfall becomes the new normal in years ahead, then the automatic snowmelt driveway could become a wildly attractive feature of this Great Neck home on the market for $3.199 million.
Instead of shoveling, there are two Jacuzzis -- one in the master bathroom and one on the Ipe hardwood deck -- to soak in. "In the middle of the winter if we feel like popping outside and going into the Jacuzzi we can," says homeowner Eric Ettinger.
The fully renovated Tudor-style home has eight bedrooms, five bathrooms and a half-bath.
The 1928 house was renovated 11 years ago by a team of local architects and designers. A radiant floor heating system warms floors in the den, kitchen and master suite. A lower-level game room houses full-sized billiards, foosball as well as poker tables and a screening room that can accommodate a projector and a 7-foot movie screen.
Outside, there is a built-in gas barbecue and outdoor refrigerator on the deck.
