“A lot of the properties in Nissequogue are on high bluffs,” says Marianne Koke of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty, who is listing the property with Denise Voelker. “Some of them do have stairs down to the beach, but this one you can walk right on the beach.”

All but three of the home’s 12 rooms have water views. The family room features a stone fireplace, and there’s a balcony off the master bedroom. The 7,500-square-foot home has a finished walkout basement, and there is a saltwater pool on the property.
