A 2005 Colonial in the Village of Asharoken is on the market for $5.5 million. It not only offers 150 feet of waterfront on Northport Bay but also has a design similar to a “top-tier Manhattan apartment,” said Risa Ziegler, listing agent with Jyll Kata of Douglas Elliman Real Estate.

This three-story, 7,000-square-foot home has an open layout on the first level with the living room, dining room and coffered-ceiling kitchen with butler’s pantry all looking out to the bay. Most of the floors have radiant heating. A library, gym area, recreation room and more water views are found on the third floor.

“The woodworking is breathtaking,” Kata said, “with magnificent built-ins.” There are five bedrooms, five bathrooms and one half-bathroom.

Other features include five fireplaces, an in-ground pool and spa, mahogany deck, sports court and attached two-car garage.
