  • Nostalgic for the days before the Hamptons became the Hamptons? At this $10.9 million property you can pretend to relive a bygone era, while secretly enjoying a slew of modern conveniences.

    The house, even though it was renovated in 2009, was built in 1903. Back then, people used fireplaces to generate heat. If you're interested in staging a historical reenactment, the house's six fireplaces will come in handy. The house includes a "gracious entrance hall with fireplace," two living rooms ("one with fireplace"), a dining room "with fireplace," a kitchen "with gas fireplace," a master bedroom "with gas fireplace," and three guest bedrooms ("one with gas fireplace"). While you're keeping warm the old-fashioned way, be sure to remind your guests that some of the windows feature "original glass."

    But when the guests leave, feel free to take advantage of the "new energy features," such as the "hot-air furnace with a Geothermal back-up system" and the "7-zone heating and cooling," according to the Brown Harris Stevens listing. For a real treat, take a ride in the "modern convenience of an elevator." — William Alden
