This Fort Salonga waterfront property next to Sunken Meadow State Park, listed for $4.25 million, is known as the Jonas Platt Homestead.

The eight-bedroom, 51/2-bathroom home was built in 1717 by American settler Jonas Platt. It was rebuilt after a fire in 1754 and has since been restored and expanded.

The home has many original, handcrafted details, including the nails in the wide-plank pine floors and the wooden banisters and balusters. There are six fireplaces and an expanded chef's kitchen with high-end appliances. A second-floor great room serves as a billiards room.

Also on the more than 9-acre property is an 18th century barn, an original chicken coop (which now serves as a tool shed and workshop), a tea house and an additional storage building that resembles a Colonial cottage complete with a cupola and weather vane.

It is co-listed with Laura Zambratto and John Haines of Daniel Gale Sotheby's International Realty.
