The six-bedroom, 2 1⁄2-bathroom home overlooking Northport Harbor was later purchased by S. LeRoy Ackerly, an attorney who owned oyster farms, says Shelley Pierce of Douglas Elliman Real Estate.

There are three floors, an updated kitchen, a living room with a fireplace, and a large front porch and separate deck on the side of the house.
