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.
