Some recent big buys west of the Shinnecock Canal just couldn’t go by without mention.

Leading off is Quogue, where 31 Shinnecock Road sold for $4.6 million, according to The Real Estate Report Inc. The sellers were Patricia and Henry Lentz and the buyers were Cristina and Jonathan Wang. It had been listed for $5.2 million.

This shingle-style colonial revival built in 1903 is known as To Windward, built for Harold Medina, the late U.S. circuit court judge. On 1.9 acres, it has eight bedrooms, six full bathrooms and one half-bath. The living room has century-old floors and the original tin ceiling. Then there’s the formal dining room, the den, and the large eat-in kitchen/family room. The 20-by-40 pool is situated in front of a “charming” pool house and this property offers a two-car detached garage as well.

Up next, Francis O’Malley Trust sold the “turnkey postmodern home” at 677 Dune Road in West Hampton Dunes to Mark and Meryl Transport for $2.82 million.

The 0.26-acre oceanfront property had been listed by Enzo Morabito of Douglas Elliman for $3 million. The residence is 4,100 square feet with four bedrooms — including an oversized master suite — and four bathrooms plus two family rooms, a kitchen with maple cabinets and stainless steel appliances, a formal dining room and an office. A wraparound porch provides access to all points of the house and the beach, and the third-floor sitting room with balcony accesses the rooftop deck.

In East Quogue, Shannon and Kevin Foote are the new owners of 49 Sunset Avenue after laying down $1.97 million.

The listed seller was Savannah Homes Inc., which traces back to The Northridge Group, an East Patchogue-based builder. Asking for the 0.75-acre property had been $2.1 million. According to the Douglas Elliman listing, the 4,500-square-foot new construction has five bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, two gas fireplaces, hardwood floors and a gourmet kitchen. Outside, enjoy decks, a heated gunite pool and a covered patio. There’s a pool house, too.
