There are three separate decks for lounging at this 9,100-square-foot Great River Colonial-style house, which is on 1.7 acres and has 132 feet of sandy beach along the Connetquot River. The property is listed for $2.549 million.
The gated four-bedroom home with four full baths and two half-baths has four floors. Intricate millwork takes the form of wide, detailed moldings, elaborate fireplace mantels and tobacco road teak and Brazilian mahogany hardwood floors throughout.
“The millwork is quite extensive. The moldings are very deep and pretty seamless,” says David Sanders, of Eric G. Ramsay Jr. Associates. He is co-listing with Warren Barta.
A room on the north side of the home has a large game room with exposed ceiling beams, a stone fireplace and a billiards table. On the south side, a large formal living room has wood floors, large windows and a stone block fireplace.
Both wings open through to small decks that flank the largest, central deck, which is accessible from a window-lined breakfast nook and a kitchen that was recently updated with high-end, energy-efficient appliances.
Additional views are available from a private balcony off the home’s master bedroom suite, where there are his and hers en-suite baths, vaulted ceilings, and a stone fireplace. Three additional bedrooms on the second floor share a full bathroom.
A theater on the home’s third floor can be controlled remotely through a tablet or iPad and includes eight plush chairs and tiered stadium seating, Sanders says. Stairs in the theater lead to a viewing cupola with 360-degree views of the river and Fire Island.
The walkout lower level includes a kitchen and a great room. It opens through sliding doors to a pool with a swim-up bar and a waterfall Jacuzzi. It is built into a stone patio that is partially covered by the main deck above.
A deepwater boat slip can accommodate a 50-foot yacht, Sanders says. The property has eight-zone heat, central air conditioning, in-ground sprinklers and a two-car attached garage.
