If you don’t mind the trek, you can find some nice properties out in the Rockaways—like this home at 148-16 Newport Avenue, nestled in the affluent enclave of Neponsit. With a $3.85 million price tag, it’s by no means a bargain—despite its distance from pricier Manhattan and Brooklyn—but if you have the budget, you’ll get 4,800 square feet of living space and an impressive backyard complete with an in-ground pool, gazebo, and sweet Jamaica Bay views.

A slate-stoned walkway leads to the front porch, which boasts five archways. The entrance is grand, through a front door framed by limestone columns. The house features Spanish-style clay tiles, which were used as a building material throughout to encourage comfortable temperatures throughout the year.

The first floor is comprised of two smaller rooms in the front of the house—currently being used as an office and a playroom—and a central foyer that opens onto a more formal living area in the back. The living room has a fireplace inlaid with imported Mexican tiles and glass doors that bring you to a lovely patio overlooking the backyard.

A Carrara marble island is the centerpiece of the kitchen, which is open to the living room and an adjacent dining area. There’s dark soapstone countertops, two copper sinks, and a suite of appliances to make cooking, entertaining, and cleaning up a breeze.

The second level is comprised of three smaller bedrooms—which share two porches and a bathroom—as well as a laundry room and a master suite. The master benefits from a large en-suite bathroom, two walk-in closets and a private porch surrounded by columns and cast-iron railings.

Constructed in 2004, the house sprawls over two floors and includes a walkable attic space and a finished 2,400 square-foot basement that could be converted into a gym (per the rendering in the listing) or any number of other uses.

Outside, there’s a two-car garage, a built-in grill, and a fiberglass pool next to a gazebo topped off with vining plants. The property is adjacent to Jacob Riis Park and Jamaica Bay is a stone’s throw away from the backyard.
