Riverhead Real Estate

The town of Riverhead in Suffolk County lies at the very center of Long Island’s North and South Forks at the mouth of the Peconic River.

The area at the juncture of Route 27 (to the South Fork) and Route 25 (to the North Fork) has been called “The marketplace for eastern Long Island.” The Mount Sinai-Wading River-Ridge areas as well as Manorville are known for their residential neighborhoods, and Riverhead’s Main Street, with its restored art deco Suffolk Theater, is undergoing a resurgence in popularity. You’ll also find yourself surrounded by many of the island’s fabulous golf courses, beaches and farm stands.

Riverhead is also a short drive to the Hamptons (including the neighboring Hampton Bays, West Hampton and Quogue) with world-renowned beaches, vacation communities and cultural opportunities as well as the famous vineyards of the North Fork and the neighborhoods of central Long Island. The population of hamlets like Jamesport grows in summer months with visitors to the Peconic Bay beaches and in early fall with pumpkin-pickers and wine-tasters eager to sample the season's bounty.

Other attractions include the 2,700-acre David A. Sarnoff Pine Barrens Preserve, the Atlantis Marine World Aquarium and the Tanger Outlet Mall, a 165-plus store discount outlet.

Riverhead offers a bounty of farm stands where you can pick—or buy—apples, berries, melons and peaches, eggplant, cucumber, peas and lettuce. The Hallockville Museum Farm and Folklife Center is a living monument to Long Island’s past.

Also home to a year-round whirl of festivals, Riverhead’s festivals include the Long Island Blues Festival, Garlic Festival, and the Polish Town Street Fair and Polka Festival for more opportunities to enjoy the island’s past and present.

Riverhead is accessible via the Greenport branch of the Long Island Railroad and major highways.
