This circa-1865 Colonial in Huntington Bay listed for $1.229 million brings historic charm to three floors of living space.

The three-bedroom, three-bath home is said to be one of many homes built in the Huntington area for August Heckscher, according to Risa Ziegler of Douglas Elliman Real Estate, who is listing the property with Jyll Kata.

Set on 0.64 acres, the almost 2,900-square-foot residence has high ceilings, wood floors and exposed beams in the living and dining rooms. The kitchen and living room each have a wood-burning fireplace.

A year-round enclosed porch overlooking the fenced property through a wall of windows is off the living and family rooms. The residence is part of the road association for Beach Road in the incorporated village.

The master suite can be found on the second floor, where there are two additional bedrooms and a full bathroom in the hallway. There is a finished, carpeted third floor, and the bathrooms were updated in the early 2000s.

A full, unfinished basement includes an outside entrance, and there is a two-car detached garage.
