The original portion of the three-bedroom, two-bath Greenport cottage listed for $1.5 million was moved — turrets and all — by barge to is current location around 1908, its listing agent says.

Set on a 100-by-160-foot parcel with 100 feet of Peconic Bay waterfront, the home has views of Pipes Cove and the Shelter Island Sound.

“You can see the water from just about every room,” says listing agent Susan Sutton of The Corcoran Group. “From the front of the house, there are 180-degree views. It’s incredible.”

The turrets produce uniquely proportioned rooms, including a partially rounded front parlor. One of two second-floor bedrooms has floor-to-ceiling wainscoting. A detached two-car garage also features turrets in its architecture.

Vintage elements include electric wall sconces, panes of colored-glass windows, and a living-room fireplace. The home has central air conditioning and a master bedroom with a walk-in closet.
