The character and charm of Stony Brook real estate is the result, in part, of philanthropist Ward Melville who turned the fishing community of Stony Brook into a model New England Village complete with white clapboard and quaint shops and Colonial Williamsburg homes. Melville donated the land and the money for building the State University of New York at Stony Brook as well as for the local school district.
Stony Brook real estate is primarily a residential market. The area has virtually no industrial or commercial base due to current zoning laws. The attractive North Shore village of hills, harbors and beaches offers a mix of the past and the present with its historical scenic location and the lively atmosphere created by students and professionals. Stony Brook Village is a showcase of quaint shops, fine dining and breathtaking harbor views.
Stony Brook visitors and residents alike enjoy Sand Street Beach, a duck pond, a historic grist mill (c. 1751), as well as the newly created Avalon Park, which has a fabulous boardwalk, trails, landscaping, and a year-round groundskeeper. Additionally, the Long Island Museum is billed as one of the largest Carriage Museums of its type in America. The Museum has more types of horse drawn carriages than you might ever imagine.
