Why it’s for sale: Jalayer, 68, a semiretired architect, is downsizing and moving to Queens.

Jalayer’s approximately 3,800-square-foot home is set high and offers water views. Mike shares his thoughts on the home:

“I renovated the entire house when I moved in. I opened walls between the living room and kitchen. It’s an open layout. The kitchen, den, living room and dining room are all connected. There are oak hardwood floors throughout the house, except for the ceramic tile in the kitchen. I renovated the kitchen with new cabinets, new appliances and granite counters.

"There’s an eating counter between the kitchen and the den. There are three bedrooms on the main floor, and the lower level has three bedrooms. We’re on a slope, and the yard has very nice landscaping.

"Off the den is a deck made of Brazilian hardwood that has water views of the Long Island Sound. The lower level has mother-daughter space with its own living room, kitchen, full bath and separate entrance.

"It’s good nanny space or good for grandparents. It’s very private here. You can walk around in a bikini and no one can see you. And it’s very, very quiet. In the backyard, you feel completely cut off from civilization.”
