Known as “Tranquillity,” this circa 1850 traditional-style home is the oldest house in Wheatley Heights. It originally belonged to Henry A. Brown, a writer and a justice of the peace who also served as Babylon town supervisor. Brown lived in the house 77 years. Set back on a .69-acre parcel, the house is about 3,000 square feet. It features wood floors, original moldings, French doors, four fireplaces, a screened-in porch and a full walk-up attic. There are five bedrooms and two bathrooms. Updates include a new heating system and a new slate roof. The two-car garage is detached. Listing agent: Jonathan Kaiser, Fortune Realty of Long Island, South Setauket, 631-320-0800
Offering several updates, this eight-room Baldwin Cape has a new roof, siding and windows. Interior features include wood floors, moldings and a fireplace in the living room. The kitchen and two bathrooms were remodeled a few years ago. The eat-in kitchen — from which the rear deck can be accessed — was expanded and designed with white cabinets and white appliances. The house has three bedrooms, with potential for a fourth, says the listing broker. Two of the bedrooms as well as one bathroom are on the second floor. Amenities include a basement with a high ceiling and a detached one-car garage. The house is set on a dead-end street on a 50-by-95-foot parcel.
