A modern take on classic style and grace, this Orient dream home has a lot to offer in terms of living space and views. A great summer escape, this $1.1 million house is located steps away from the village and nestled in between two beaches. The four bedroom home features a finely crafted, spacious floor plan, a gourmet eat-in-kitchen, formal living and dinning rooms and a heated pool. And it’s all just four miles from the Cross Sound Ferry.

Sometimes the market’s up, sometimes the market might be down, but one thing’s always for sure: there’s always real estate out there to be bought.

Each week, sellers advertise some of the real estate they’re trying to sell — whether it’s a condo, vacant land, commercial space, or a classic single-family home — as well as rent out.

We’ve compiled some of that here for our readers — including houses for sale, condos for sale, homes for rent, as well as commercial properties — though for our complete listings, check out our classifieds section, which we post online in full every week.

And if you want to publish some real estate of your own, get in touch with our classifieds section at:

Also, be sure to keep up with our Real Estate page online for the latest in news from the field.

About a year and a half ago, my wife and I bought our first home. From the start, we knew very well that we would need to get our hands dirty in order to make the house work. In case you’ve been living under a rock, real estate isn’t cheap on Long Island. And we got lucky with our place — it’s in the back of a neighborhood in Wading River, with about as little through traffic as we could ask for.

But with that came the need for a little bit of elbow grease and updating. Four words: carpets in the kitchen.
