Rich cribs: East Hampton 'cottages'

Former Mets closer Francisco Rodriguez has put his 13-room Upper Brookville home on the market.

The Milwaukee Brewers pitcher is asking $2.3 million -- the same price he paid for the house when he purchased it in 2009.

The house hit the market Monday.

The six-bedroom, six-bath, one half-bath home is on a cul-de-sac on a private road. The 2.21-acre property includes an in-ground pool, a boccie court and a three-car garage.

The center-hall Colonial has separate guest quarters as well as a wine cellar, a gourmet eat-in kitchen, a butler's pantry and a full basement.

The listing is with Matthew Korman of Prudential Douglas Elliman Real Estate, who brought K-Rod, as Rodriguez is known, to the 2009 sale. -- VALERIE KELLOGG

Titanic ERA

A stucco mansion in Long Beach, on the market for $2,499,000, was in the planning stages when the Titanic sank 100 years ago. Some of the home's architectural details are reminiscent of those found on the doomed ship, from the stained glass to the grand staircase to the wood paneling to the fireplaces.

The current owners purchased the 14-room home in 2004 and say it took more than three years to renovate and restore the property to its former glory. Several coats of paint had to be removed from the oak wood on the grand staircase and the walls and ceilings in the foyer, living room and dining room.

Extensive research went into finding era-appropriate reproductions, including the tub, tile flooring and sinks in the master bath.

The glass in the front door is original to the house, as are the home's two wood-burning fireplaces, one in the dining room and the other in the master bedroom.

The listing agent is Joyce Coletti of Prudential Douglas Elliman Real Estate. -- VIRGINIA DUNLEAVY
