If you're looking for more space and a bit of a suburban feel without having to decamp to New Jersey or Westchester, the far-from-the-subway portions of Queens are an option worth checking out, as you can still find a house in the borough for under $1 million. Below are five places that fit the bill and are holding open houses this weekend.

This three-bedroom, one-and-a-half bath expanded Cape Cod features lots of original woodwork, formal living and dining rooms, a kitchen with high-end appliances, a wood-burning fireplace, and a private driveway with a garage. In back, a large deck looks out onto a landscaped yard with a waterfall pond. Three blocks from the Grand Central Parkway, and about a mile from the F at 179th Street and the LIRR Hollis stop.
