Sometimes the best things in life are the simplest things. And though this Long Island house isn’t exactly simple (it does have eight bedrooms, sit on three acres, and have a huge pool and a guest cottage), its traditional style and classical interiors make it a true standout. Located in Locust Valley, a quaint town that’s part of Oyster Bay, and asking $4.5 million, the colonial home was built in 1863 but underwent a modern renovation that’s brought it into the 21st century.

From the oversized shutters to the wraparound porch to the dormer windows, the home has just about everything you’d look for in that “white picket fence” fairy tale.

Inside, you’ll find a traditional front-to-back center hall, along with 10-foot ceilings, original crown moldings, beautifully restored hardwood floors, and several fireplaces.

The eat-in kitchen has every modern convenience you could think of and opens to a bright, airy family room.

As mentioned, there are eight bedrooms, as well as six full bathrooms and two half baths.

The rear porch is perfect for outdoor entertaining, as is the patio surrounding the gunite pool and spa. The grounds feature bluestone paths and fieldstone landscape walls.

The charming guest cottage has two bedrooms and its own mini patio.
