'I always wanted a house on the water," says Hoffman. She made that dream come true five years ago when she purchased this waterfront legal two-family home. The main house has four bedrooms and three bathrooms, while the secondary residence has two bedrooms and one bathroom. "What's nice is, the tenant portion has its own entrance and a large backyard deck. The main house has its own deck as well - in total, a deck wraps three-quarters of the way around the house," Hoffman says, noting her backyard has a private beach. Hoffman, a corporate lawyer, adds:

"When you walk inside, you see the great room with a cathedral ceiling and the beautiful crown molding. . . . The great room the living room, dining room, billiard room and kitchen. There are skylights in almost every room. The main house has three bedrooms upstairs and a one-bedroom suite with a den on the first level ."
