Wondering what your budget can get you on the red hot North Fork real estate market? We’re here to help, home buyers. In our new biweekly column, we’re spotlighting homes for sale in hamlets across the North Fork at various price points.

This week, we’re looking at homes priced from $500,000 to $600,000. Score an original Sears kit bungalow in Jamesport, kayak from a creek-front property in Laurel, or swim in your in-ground pool in Wading River, all in this price range. Check out the listings below.

A historic bungalow on a country road

Built in 1926, this bungalow is an original Sears kit house (the “Hamilton” model no less) with the relatively rare documentation to prove its authenticity. It’s been beautifully restored with hardwood floors and high-end appliances, and there’s a detached garage and room for a pool out back. The location, sandwiched between an orchard and a winery in Jamesport, couldn’t be more bucolic. It’s listed by Daniel Gale Sothebys for $590,000.

A Riverhead ranch with all the updates

Shiplap! Wainscoting! Reclaimed barn-wood accents! This totally turnkey 3 bedroom, 1 bath ranch in the Reeves Park neighborhood has had the top-to-bottom renovation of your HGTV dreams, from the vintage beams in the ceiling to the quartz counters in the kitchen to the marble floors in the bathroom. It’s only a 5 minute stroll from the Long Island Sound, too. The home is listed by David L. White for $549,000.

Four bedrooms and a pool in Wading River

Less than a two-hour drive from NYC, this nicely renovated ranch home sits on a cool 1.13 acres in Wading River and has a new kitchen, formal dining room and a two car garage. Did we mention there’s a pool in the back? Get it from Keystone Realty USA for $559,000.

A Greenport saltbox with tons of curb appeal

Renovated in 2006, this two bedroom, two bath cedar cutie sits on the corner of Main St. and Route 48, meaning it’s walkable to sunsets at 67 Steps beach in one direction and the shops and restaurants of downtown Greenport in the other. Inside, the wide-plank wood floors are a highlight. It’s listed by Richmond Realty Corp. for $559,000.

Creek views and a prime location in Laurel

This ranch home in Laurel has three bedrooms and one bath inside, but its big selling point is outside: water views overlooking quiet Horton’s Creek. This is a central location near Peconic Bay Park, Veteran’s Beach and the shops of Mattituck. It’s listed by Thomas J. McCarthy Real Estate for $559,000.
