Only those who take their recreation seriously need apply for this Head of the Harbor home, listed for $1,188,888. In addition to having an in-ground pool and a bar and billiards room, this place is tailor-made for the buyer who has more bowling shoes than Jimmy Choos — there’s a one-lane bowling alley in the finished basement. 

“It’s a standard, regulation-size length with automatic ball return, just like you’d find in a regular bowling alley,” says seller Roger Hayes.

The kitchen is newly remodeled in the seven-bedroom, six full and two half-bathroom home. The 5,800-square-foot contemporary includes two guest wings. The 1986 home is on two acres on a cul-de-sac in the Smithtown school district. It is listed with Liping Zhao of Living Cultural Realty Llc. -- Kristin Taveira

TOWERING VIEW. A Massapequa Colonial, on the market for $2.2 million, features a backyard with views of the Jones Beach tower.

The 106-by-230-foot property comes with a heated in-ground pool, a kitchen-dining area with running water and a built-in barbecue tucked underneath a pergola. There’s also a bulkhead and dock plus deeded rights to a private beach club and marina.

The homeowners, who had lived in London and traveled throughout Ireland, added a pub to the full finished basement. It has a wooden bar with tin ceiling. An artist friend painted a rendition of a photo they’d taken in Dingle, Ireland, on the wall that separates the bar area from the rest of the basement.

Other features of the home include five bedrooms, four bathrooms, an eat-in kitchen, a formal dining room, a family room with a fireplace, a home office and an attached two-car garage. The house is listed with Jay and Marty Nociforo of Exit Realty Premier. -- Virginia Dunleavy
