White beadboard cabinetry and Eastlake-style hardware in a renovated Smithtown kitchen nod to an earlier time. The house has been standing for decades, but some of its amenities are much younger.

"The current owners really have done a beautiful job of keeping the character of the house, while bringing it up to offer modern conveniences," said listing agent Marianne Koke, of Daniel Gale Sotheby's International Realty.

The four-bed, 1½-bath home on Edgewood Avenue is on the market for $879,000. Annual taxes on the 0.85-acre property, which sits within the Smithtown Central School District, total $10,323.

The first floor has nine-foot ceilings, which Koke said is a rare find in older homes. There are an enclosed front porch and a sunroom.

Among updates by the sellers are a seamless Caesarstone countertop, natural gas and hot water heating systems to replace one fueled by oil, and a new roof. There is koa hardwood flooring on the first level and Brazilian cherry flooring on the second, Koke said. A fireplace in the formal living room runs on natural gas.

Outside, a two-stall barn includes a tack room. The backyard hosts peach and plum trees, concord grape vines and blueberry bushes.

The home is within walking distance of the rear parking lot of the Smithtown Long Island Rail Road station, Koke noted, but the train is not audible from the property.

"It is on a fairly traveled road, which many older historic homes are," she said. "But, when you step into the yard, there's this expansive, verdant lawn with flowering fruit trees and perennial gardens and you are transported."
