Multiple turrets are incorporated into the design of this 9,500-square-foot Laurel Hollow Colonial listed for $8.8 million.

The five-bedroom, 5.5-bath home, which is strengthened with steel to withstand hurricanes, was completed in 2006 after four years of construction.

A long driveway leads to the 2.13-acre waterfront parcel with 325 feet of sandy beach and water views across the Long Island Sound to Connecticut and to Cold Spring Harbor. The home features a front porch and a multilevel deck overlooking the water.

All of the home’s bedrooms include bathrooms en suite; the master bedroom suite includes a fireplace. A custom chef’s kitchen and a great room with high ceilings — both of which have fireplaces — are part of a main-level open floor plan that was designed so that every room faces the water.

There is a heated, attached four-car garage, as well as a wine cellar, a cigar room and an office. The home is heated with propane, and there are a pair of 1,000-gallon tanks on the property.

The listing agents are Karen Ravn Heuwetter and Suzanne Wehren of Signature Premier Properties and Suiv Lee of Douglas Elliman Real Estate.
