This circa-1908 Port Washington cedar shingle Colonial with dual wraparound porches was formerly a physician’s residence, says the listing agent. The asking price for the four-bedroom, three-bath home is $1.649 million.

The fully covered first-floor porch, accessible from a family room, wraps around three-quarters of the home. The second-floor deck, which is covered on its front portion, is accessible from a hallway door off a pair of bedrooms, says listing agent Phyllis Realmuto, of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty.

“It’s definitely an entertaining home because of the flow,” she says.

Situated on a 100-by-120-foot lot in the Port Washington Heights Historical District, the house retains many turn-of-the-century features like original chestnut wood floors and millwork, exposed beams and extensive millwork in the formal dining room, and a large barn that has become a three-car detached garage.

“Although it’s a Victorian/Colonial setup, it’s almost a Craftsman,” Realmuto says.

Nine-foot ceilings are found throughout the residence. The family room features a fireplace, and an eat-in chef’s kitchen, which was converted to gas recently, features a kitchen peninsula and a butler’s pantry.

The home’s four bedrooms are found upstairs; doors link the pairs of bedrooms. The master bedroom has an en suite full bath and is connected to a bedroom by a room that could be converted to a nursery or a dressing room, Realmuto says.

The third floor, which was formerly servant’s quarters, features a finished room and attic space. A walkout lower level includes an office, a playroom, and new Pella windows. The large yard is equipped with in-ground sprinklers.
