After going for a swim or lounging on the wraparound deck that offers views of Patchogue Bay, head down to the basement of this five-bedroom Colonial for a steam in the sauna. The Narvi sauna features a wraparound bench that can fit up to six people, says the home’s listing agent. It’s situated in the finished basement of the house, which also includes a recreation room and a full bathroom.

The 1989 home, with 3.5 bathrooms, has a living room with a fireplace, vaulted ceilings with skylights and a floating staircase that leads up to a sitting area and library with built-in bookshelves. Next to the living room is the formal dining room.

The kitchen includes a six-burner Thermador gas stove, two ovens, two dishwashers, a center island and butler’s pantry. In addition to sliding glass doors, the kitchen boasts panoramic windows and skylights. Off the kitchen is an open den area, also with sliders.

In addition to a sauna, this four-bedroom Colonial also has a Japanese soaking tub. The all-black tub is about 5 feet by 4 feet, with walls about 5.5 inches thick, says the home’s listing agent. The tub is situated in a partially finished basement, just outside the entrance to the sauna, which has a glass door and fits one person.

The 1994 home, with 2.5 bathrooms, also features a projection screen multimedia room in the living area, which is lined with bamboo flooring. The eat-in kitchen includes stainless steel appliances, cork flooring and sliding glass doors. The master bedroom is on the main level, with three additional bedrooms upstairs.

A gated driveway leads to a full-length, covered porch in the front of the house. There is a heated in-ground pool and a tiki bar in the backyard of the 1.3-acre property, which backs to farmland.

“It’s very secluded from the properties around it,” says listing agent Jeremy Ryan of The Corcoran Group. “In the summertime, when the trees are full, you’re basically in your own little world back there.”
