A swoony Sound-front retreat in Greenport
“Incredibly romantic” is the listing’s descriptor for this four-bedroom home on the Long Island Sound, and that about sums it up. In summer, watch the sunset from the balcony off the master suite, the deck of the gunite pool or through the walls of windows in your nostalgic back porch. In winter, curl up in the wood-paneled den by just one of your three (count ‘em) fireplaces. This Greenport property is on sale for $3.3 million from Corcoran Realty.
Seven bedrooms and a sugar sand beach in Aquebogue
Between the white-sand beach and the white-washed design, this huge seven-bedroom, 5,200 square-foot home gives off Mediterranean vibes in Aquebogue. The home has two wings, each with living and dining areas, bedrooms and laundry facilities. Plus a boat dock, tennis court and wraparound deck. It’s listed for $3.75 million from Daniel Gale Sothebys.

(BTW, you can rent this place too.) The property is listed for $3,999,999 by Coach Real Estate.
A nautical creek-side paradise in Mattituck
