Sea Cliff Real Estate

Curving along the shoreline of Hempstead Harbor off Long Island Sound, the village of Sea Cliff is located in the town of Oyster Bay in Nassau County. Neighbors include Glen Cove to the north, Glenwood Landing to the south and Glen Head to the east.

A genteel yet slightly bohemian oasis of lovingly-restored Victorian homes and smaller cottages along winding roads and the steep hillsides that give the village its name, Sea Cliff is nestled among the notable affluence of Long Island's North Shore Gold Coast. Though this tiny about one square mile waterfront village is no less a verdant refuge, it is known more for its friendly residents and artists' colony vibe than for grand country mansions or orderly suburban subdivisions.

In the 1800s, Sea Cliff was the site of a church camp for Methodist revival meetings. At the end of that century, wealthy Brooklyn families in search of a summer retreat built the large Victorian homes that remain today.

Breathtaking harbor views and excellent schools bring families who are ready for a move from New York City. Many of the homes here are graciously-proportioned pre-war houses and quaint bungalows with wide porches. Newer homes can be found on the village's eastern edge.

Sea Cliff Avenue is the town's main dining and shopping district, with winding side streets that offer antique shops, vintage bookstores and quirky SoHo-esque bistros. Community fundraisers, street fairs and other activities happen regularly. The village boasts no fewer than 16 neighborhood parks. Memorial Park offers beautiful views of Hempstead Harbor, and a summertime weekly concert series draws a crowd; Sea Cliff Beach also hosts outdoor music on Friday nights. Harry Tappen Beach offers a pool, a playground, boat launches and a 272-slip marina. In addition to local options you'll find more restaurants and shops in nearby Roslyn and Greenvale. New York City is only 23 miles away.

It takes about an hour to travel from the Long Island Railroad station at Sea Cliff to Pennsylvania Station; it's about a 45 minute drive on the Long Island Expressway into Manhattan.
