A Sands Point home listed for $6.386 million comes with some unusual bells and whistles.

The pool area contains not only an all-weather flat-screen television but a pool house with its own bedroom and bathroom. The pool itself contains fountains that light up at night and can be programmed to spray to different rhythms and at various speeds.

A studio contains heat panels on the ceiling, which the owner’s wife uses for bikram yoga.

“It’s programmable from her iPhone,” says Maggie Keats of Douglas Elliman Real Estate, who is marketing the property with David Mongiardo. “She can jump into the shower, and by the time she gets downstairs, the yoga studio is heated and ready for a session for her with her friends.”

An in-home movie theater was soundproofed for sleepovers, “It’s a destination for the kids and their friends, and the parents don't hear a thing,” Keats says.

Another destination is the three-car garage that is easily converted into a basketball court.

Heated and with a protective wall covering, the garage soon became a place for the owners’ son and his friends to shoot hoops and practice lacrosse.
