This nearly 5,000 square-foot brick Colonial on 4.54 acres in Kings Point listed for $18,888,888 dates back to 1937 and includes a nearly 300-foot private beach along Manhasset Bay.

The six-bedroom, 5.5-bath waterfront home includes a tree- and shrub-lined pond with a fountain and a brick-lined 25-by-50-foot in-ground pool.

“The magic in this property really is the property. You’re so close to Manhattan, but you feel like you could be in the Adirondacks,” says listing agent Yvonne Doran of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty.

A slate patio at the rear of the house overlooks the pond. The property also has a gazebo and a tennis court.

The natural pond, which is large enough for kayaking and has a stream running down to Manhasset Bay, is stocked with koi and trout for fishing. The property includes deeded rights to a deepwater dock on an adjacent parcel.

Inside, fireplaces can be found in the living room, family room and library on the first floor, which also includes a formal dining room and an eat-in kitchen. The living room opens to the family room, from which French doors open into the property.
