New Suffolk Real Estate

There was a time when New Suffolk, N.Y., was known as the first submarine base in the United States. Today, this small hamlet in the town of Southold in Suffolk County, N.Y., is better known for its million-dollar homes and stunning waterfront views.

Located along the scenic shoreline of Long Island, New Suffolk offers residents breathtaking views of the waters of the Little Peconic Bay, fed by the Atlantic Ocean.

The housing prices here reflect these views, with several properties listing for more than $1.5 million. It is possible, though, for savvy buyers to find more modest homes listing for under $400,000. According to City-Data.com, the median home value in New Suffolk stood at $616,936 in 2009.

Visitors to this small hamlet -- the U.S. Census Bureau reported that just 357 people lived in New Suffolk in 2007 -- can still view an historic marker recognizing the role that the community played in the development of the United State's submarine industry.

The first commissioned U.S. Navy submarine, the USS Holland, was built and stationed in New Suffolk. In fact, six additional submarines manufactured by the Holland Torpedo Boat Company were stationed in this waterfront community from 1899 to 1905.

This isn't New Suffolk's only claim to fame. The hamlet also gained some notoriety when in 2007 its two-room school building housed just nine students total in the kindergarten through sixth grades. This earned the district a ranking as one of the smallest school districts in the state of New York.

Today, the water views, rural feel and large homes of New Suffolk continue to attract new residents hoping to escape from the noise and bustle of larger cities.
