This $4.75M North Fork waterfront estate brings theme park fun to a Victorian-style dream house

This pale blue Italianate Victorian-style confection of a seven-bedroom North Fork mansion might fit right in at Disneyland's Main Street U.S.A., but the 10,000-square-foot home's stylized interiors and carefully groomed grounds make it look like a really fun place to live. After all, how many East End estates boast an indoor pool with a twisty water park slide? And if it looks a little bit like Nashville's Grand Ole Opry House–there's a reason for that, too. Asking $4,750,000, the home on nine acres of tidal pond at 13555 New Suffolk Avenue in Cutchogue may be filled with whimsy, but the included sugar sand beach across the street is a serious treasure.

Fire Island modern ‘Pyramid House’ with a creative past asks $6.5M

When the current owner of this distinctive home at 443 Sail Walk in the wild, windswept Fire Island Pines first saw it, the house reminded him of the I.M. Pei-designed pyramid at the Louvre, transported to the Atlantic shore.

$5.75M Amagansett beach house is a modern all-season retreat

Beach houses tend not to resonate the same way when you look at them after the summer, but this Amagansett gem would surely make a lovely fall or winter escape as well. Just off Napeague Ocean Beach, the modern home underwent a full custom renovation last year thanks to its owner, fashion designer Tony Melillo. So it's no surprise that the property echoes the same "embodiment of relaxed elegance" that is the calling card for his signature ATM collection. From the special charred cedar wood facade to the Dineson Douglas fir floors from Denmark, the materials feel cool in the summer and warm in the colder months, while the outdoor space is also set for any temperature, with a patio fireplace and outside shower.
