Sound Beach Real Estate

The Suffolk County community of Sound Beach is in the town of Brookhaven on Long Island's North Shore. With the Long Island Sound as its northern border, neighboring hamlets and villages include Rocky Point and Miller Place. Just to the south lies the vast woodland of the 100,000 acre Rocky Point State Pine Barrens Preserve, a part of the New York State Central Pine Barrens. This region is the largest remnant of a forest thought to have once encompassed over a quarter million acres. This complex of relatively undeveloped pine barrens forest and wetlands contains regionally rare wetland and upland communities and supports the highest diversity of rare species in New York State.

Sound Beach is aptly named; proximity to the sound and a less-congested feel make it a great choice for those seeking a peaceful, quiet neighborhood; the area is known for its off-the-beaten-path character. People are friendly here, and it's a five minute walk to the beach from just about anywhere.

Though the Sound Beach-Rocky Point area is just a short drive from many of the North Shore's most popular destinations as well as the State University of New York at Stony Brook and the adjoining Stony Brook University Hospital, it feels remote and uninhabited in spots, with its landscape of hills and steep cliffs ending in narrow, rocky beaches. Small communities of bungalows that were built as vacation homes in the early part of the 20th century many have been renovated to suit modern suburban life as well as older and newer more traditional homes are among the many housing choices here. School options include the Rocky Point Union Free School District and the Miller Place Union Free School District.

The nearest Long Island Rail Road commuter rail station is at Port Jefferson. The nearest Amtrak station is 21 miles away in Bridgeport, CT; a ferry travels across Long Island Sound to Port Jefferson. New York City is about 60 miles away, about one hour and 15 minutes by car or rail. Sound Beach is also served by two nearby airports, Long Island Macarthur Airport in Islip, NY and Tweed New Haven Regional Airport in New Haven, CT.
