The backyard of this Bellmore property listed for $1.99 million includes a pool with a solar cover and waterfalls, a cabana with a bar and access to a canal that leads to Great South Bay.

The 20-by-40-foot pool was recently relined, and the cabana was refurbished from a shack to a finished structure with electricity. A boat lifter can hold a 16-ton craft for access to Bellmore Creek — one of the widest inlets on the South Shore.

“Everyone that walks into this house walks right out to the backyard and never wants to leave,” says listing agent Bonnie Goldstein of Douglas Elliman Real Estate. “Sitting by the pool and watching the boats go by you feel like you are on a vacation.”

The house used to be a high-ranch. A third floor was added in 2008, housing a master bedroom en suite with a large marble spa bathroom and a dressing room.

The house has five bedrooms and 4 1⁄2 bathrooms.
