ALL THAT'S GOLD
The molding of one Poquott home for sale comes with something a little extra: gold leaf. In the living room of the house, which is listed for $3,499,990 or $7,000 a month for rent, there are 22-foot ceilings surrounded by large dentil moldings decorated with the gold leaf. So is the mantel of the wood-burning fireplace. The home has two more fireplaces -- one in the master suite and one in the library.
There are also triple crown moldings with golf leaf in the foyer, over the front door and up the main staircase. The 9,000-square-foot brick and stucco house is on two acres overlooking Port Jefferson Harbor. There is a pool and gazebo area as well as a private path to the beach. The listing agent is Linda Hickey of Hickey and Smith Realtors. -- Alexandria Parker
GETAWAY BY THE BAY
This Laurel home has been a weekend beach haven for a Manhattan family for 22 years. “I get serenity coming out here from the hectic rush of the city,” said Catherine Montifiore, who works as a therapist on weekdays. “It’s our weekend oasis.”
The house is on the market for $1,775,000. The three-bedroom, two-bath postmodern has a sweeping view of Peconic Bay and its own boat ramp. In addition, there is a master bedroom with a balcony, a separate garage-studio, a stone fireplace, skylight and a covered porch on the waterside. Also included is a 1½-car garage with a private driveway. Sheri Winter Clarry of The Corcoran Group is marketing the property. -- James Kindall
