Eye On Real Estate

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.

They had a third floor added to the house, and the first and second floors were expanded, city Buildings Department records show.

* Six-bedroom waterfront house 2390 National Drive is 5,436 square feet in size and has a boat dock and slip. Talk of the Town Realty has the listing. The asking price is $2.7 million.

According to Finance Department records, this house belongs to Elena Burdeinaya.

* Another waterfront house with a $2.7 million asking price, 2604 National Drive, is on Cornerstone Real Estate & Management Corp.’s lineup of Mill Basin homes for sale. This one has an in-ground saltwater pool.

According to Finance Department records, the property belongs to Igor Bron, who paid $1.4 million for it in 2005.

* Waterfront five-bedroom 2400 National Drive, which has a dock and a pool, is in contract, according to listing agent Spire Group’s website. The asking price had been $1.9 million.

Its current owners are husband and wife Matthew and Patricia Spiewak, who paid $2.335 million for it in 2007, Finance Department records indicate.
