What could be more fun than window-shopping for shoreline houses on a sunny, summer-like November day?

Mill Basin’s waterfront homes look especially fine with cerulean skies as a backdrop.

During a recent ramble through the neighborhood on a 70-plus-degree day — see related stories — we were momentarily distracted by the beautiful house at 2781 E. 66th St. on the corner of National Drive, which looks somewhat like a Spanish hacienda.

A gazebo outside a waterfront house at 2345 56th Drive was another charming visual.

Then we turned our attention to the houses on our window-shopping list. Some were hard to photograph because the sunshine cast shadows. So we returned on a cloudy day and snapped additional shots.

* The six-bedroom waterfront house at 2357 56th Drive, listed by Keller Williams Realty at an asking price of $3.1 million, has an outdoor heated saltwater pool for year-round use.

It has belonged since 1998 to husband and wife Henrik and Gracia Zylberstein, city Finance Department records indicate.
