BY THE SEA One Sands Point home is so water-centric that the view is almost inescapable. The four-bedroom, 4½-bath home on nearly a full acre is on a peninsula and flanked by Long Island Sound and Manhasset Bay. “Every room faces the water,” says Dorothy Waxman of Douglas Elliman Real Estate, who is marketing the property for $4.75 million. The main floor consists of the living room, dining room, study, family room, master suite, maid’s rooms and the kitchen. The second floor has another master suite with a master bath and private deck. The gym — the equipment for which will be included in the sale — is on the second floor of another area of the house.
Now, back to the water. There is 260 feet of bulkhead on the property, but this particular waterfront parcel has a 100-foot dock, which, according to Waxman, is rare for Sands Point properties. The 25-by- 50-foot waterfront pool is next to a cabana complete with a shower and bathroom. Because the house faces west, the sunset views are optimal.
In addition to the main house, there is a guest cottage on the property with its own 1½-car garage (in addition to the three-car garage attached to the main house). -- ANN SMUKLER
DEEP WATER ACCESS A secluded family compound being sold for $2.335 million in Mattituck offers something for everyone. Positioned on Mattituck Inlet, the property’s dock can satisfy an ardent boater’s need for deep water access to Long Island Sound and can accommodate larger crafts in a waterway. For those with more passive water interests, the setting is ideal for family activities such as pulling mussels right out of the inlet. The estate’s in-ground swimming pool can be a more leisurely alternative to its United States Tennis Association-designed professional tennis court. The property is slightly more than 2-1/2 acres and contains a main house with four bedrooms and 4½ bathrooms, as well as a separate but connected studio-guesthouse. Nicholas Planamento of Town & Country Real Estate has the listing.
