ON THE WATER It may look like a private island, but the aptly named North Haven property known as The Peninsula — which is on the market for $16.9 million — is actually surrounded on three sides by water. Try 650 feet along Genet Creek, which exits to Shelter Island Sound.

“In my 30 years of selling real estate in the Hamptons, this truly does stand out as one of the most stellar properties I have marketed,” says Laura White of Saunders & Associates, who is sharing the listing with Susan and Matthew Breitenbach of The Corcoran Group.

Developer Marius Fortelni designed and built the six-bedroom, 61/2-bath, 7,500-square-foot house. In addition to a movie theater and a three-car garage with radiant heat, there is a 60-by-30-foot infinity edge pool with floating daybeds. Nearby, the 2-acre spread features a platform for tanning and practicing yoga.

FRENCH INFLUENCE Can’t get to Provence this year? Then you might be interested in a French manor-style house now on the market for $1,749,500 in Lloyd Harbor. The design was inspired by a 200-year-old home in Southern France. Anthony Piscopio, who is listing the property with Christine Diraimo of Prudential Douglas Elliman Real Estate, describes the manor and property as having “a very warm, quaint European feel — beautiful, rolling hills mimic the Southern France inspiration.” Built in 1952, the home was renovated in 2001 by Hoffman Grayson Architects. Its 14 rooms include a guest suite with access to one of two kitchens. There is an attached three-car garage, and the 2.12 acre property comes with winter views of Huntington Harbor as well as beach rights. The house also has some literary history. Author Bill Nack and his family called it home after he penned the novel “Secretariat: The Making of a Champion” in 1975. Originally titled “Big Red of Meadow Stable,” the book was the basis for the 2010 Walt Disney movie. He was also a consultant on the film. While living in the house, Nack, a former sportswriter for Newsday and Sports Illustrated, worked on his columns and articles in the study off the screened-in porch.

ON POINT. The 12 rooms at this gated Lattingtown Colonial include a ballet studio, complete with a barre, floor-to-ceiling mirrors and a foot-friendly floor. Listed for $6,999,999, the 8,500-square-foot, six-bedroom, six-bath, two-half-bath home also includes a man-made pond, with waterfalls and a foot bridge, that is stocked with electric rainbow koi fish. The property is just over 7 acres with a pool and a tennis court. An almost identical home next door is available for the same price. The two houses can be purchased as a compound for $14 million. Suzanne Wehren and Paula Johnson of Shawn Elliott Luxury Homes & Estates have the listing.
