Rich Cribs: Hockey’s allowed in this Brookville house, and more
ON THE COURT Sports enthusiasts in need of year-round training might want to look at this 2006 custom-built Colonial in Brookville listed for $3.589 million. The owners added an indoor sports court to the full finished basement for their hockey-playing offspring to practice in. Measuring 49 feet, 4 inches by 18 feet, 2 inches, the court has a cement floor and can be used for a number of different sports, says listing agent Lois Kirschenbaum of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty. The 12-room home has six full baths and two half-baths, five en suite bedrooms, mahogany-stained white oak floors and an open floor plan with living room-formal dining room and kitchen-den areas. Other features include four fireplaces, an attached, 2.5-car garage plus a heated saltwater in-ground pool with poolside cabana on a two-acre parcel.

NATURAL PARADISE This modern, nine-room Hampton Bays home on the market for $1.995 million overlooking Shinnecock Bay comes with a paddle tennis court that the owners also use for basketball. Situated at the tip of Cormorant Point, a 5-acre area of preserved land, the court, home and in-ground pool are surrounded by nearly an acre of foliage. The owners planted more than 400 trees themselves. “It’s all about nature here,” says seller Dana Kingsley, an agent with Village Real Estate of the Hamptons. “Cormorant Point is glorious ... There’s so much water visible from just about anywhere.” The great room has a cathedral ceiling with skylights as well as French doors leading to a deck overlooking the water. There is an enclosed sunroom. The stone fireplace in the great room is one of three. There is also a brick fireplace in the den and one in the master bedroom. The master bath is tiled, with his and hers sinks, a large spa tub and separate glass shower. There are three additional bedrooms.
