This two-bedroom, two-bathroom canal-front house in Freeport comes with a boat. "The owner figures since they are selling the house furnished, why not put the boat in with the sale?" says listing agent Katherine Kearney of Laffey Fine Homes.

The boat is a 23-foot Grady-White valued at $25,000, Kearney says. "The owner just worked on the engine, too, so it is in excellent condition," she says.

The property is listed for $1.25 million.

The contemporary home's foundation was rebuilt after sustaining damage in superstorm Sandy. There is also a new floating dock and a new wood deck. "Every room in the house overlooks the Freeport canal, which is very popular in the summer for boaters especially," says Kearney.

There are two bedrooms and a full bathroom on the upper level of the home -- one bedroom has a balcony and the other has a loft. The main level features an open layout, an eat-in kitchen, formal dining room, a sunken den with a fireplace, an office, a full bathroom and a hot tub -- "it's right off the den in the house, and overlooks the canal," says Kearney.

"There is also a very nice entertaining deck that can fit two boats off the back of the house," Kearney says.
