The house had a huge master suite, but the back yard was paved with asphalt.

The kids loved their new, separate bedrooms; their parents loved the separate den.

The renters can store their skis in the outdoor locker; the owners can store their belongings in the padlocked walk-in closet.

We don't want any punctuation after "ocean" in this sentence. Here are three correct ways to punctuate it:
The new house had a view of the ocean and a park, and the driveway had room for up to five vehicles.
The new house had a view of the ocean and a park; the driveway had room for up to five vehicles.
The new house had a view of the ocean and a park. The driveway had room for up to five vehicles.

A music room was the dream of the husband, but the wife really wanted a screened-in porch.

[I’d have to modify the next sentence, as well as (or instead of) adding either punctuation mark.]
The new house had a view of the ocean and a park. The driveway had room for up to five vehicles.
