Rich cribs: A gift for winter

If shoveling snow off the driveway is not

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.

Qizhan Jack Yao of RealMart Realty LLC has the listing.
