Orient Real Estate

Located on the eastern-most point of the North Fork of Long Island, Orient offers a pace even quieter than other beach communities in Suffolk County. Residents have unique access to the 350-acre Orient Beach State Park. This peninsula offers unusual animal and plant life, and 10 miles of public beaches.

Fewer than 1,000 year-round residents enjoy the harbor views; the passing ships by day and the lights of the mainland shore at night.

Local shellfish is so good that Orient was once called Oysterponds because of the quality of their oyster beds. Fishing, boating and moorage are available at several local marinas and boat basins.

Three centuries of home building has filled the neighborhood with a variety of historical homes, leading to the local joke that a "new home" is anything built after World War II. The local historical society offers education for owners who want to restore or preserve these investment-worthy properties.

The Long Beach Sanctuary, Gardiner Harbor and Orient Harbor offer more views, hikes and wildlife viewing.

For those who crave more active pursuits, New York City is less than two hours west on the Long Island Expressway. Nearby villages and townships like Riverhead and Flanders offer a wide variety of shopping and entertainment. During the summer, seasonal business, farm stands, and tourists bring the excitement to Orient's doorstep.

Unlike many other Long Island neighborhoods, homes in Orient are affordable for working families as well as the more affluent professionals escaping from the fast pace of city life.
