Visit New York! Beautiful house on the water just between Manhattan (45 miles) and the famous Hamptons (25 miles).

Our home has just been redesigned and upgraded. We have stunning views of the Port Jeffferson harbor, a beach house and the water just steps away from our back door. With so many water activities it will be a difficult decision to stay at the house or take the train into New York City. Dozens of Long Island wineries are just a short drive away. We have made 11 successful home exchanges.

Tucked away on Long Island’s north shore, the Incorporated Village of Poquott is a true gem. The Village is nestled between Port Jefferson Harbor and Setauket Harbor, and is an eclectic mix of converted summer homes, waterfront estates, and individuals from all walks of life.

The Village offers residents a multitude of amenities. As AJ Hallock wrote a century ago, “Van Brunt Manor is splendid in location, in beauty, and in natural advantages”.

Residents have access to two beaches and a harbor front park. Walnut Beach lies on the shore of Port Jefferson Harbor, while Van Brunt Manor Beach allows for access to the waters of Setauket Harbor. Both beaches feature dinghy & kayak racks. California Park features two large fields, a gazebo, a private boat ramp, dinghy racks, and a playground. All residents are granted exclusive mooring rights off of Poquott’s shoreline.

Village Hall lies at the foot of Birchwood Avenue, and adjoins Trustees Park. The park offers Poquott residents over two acres of scenic parkland, a greenhouse, private tennis courts, communal gardens, a playground, and picnicking areas.

Two easements, Steve’s Path and the “Indian Trail”, allow for additional access to Port Jefferson Harbor. Steve’s Path connects Tinker Bluff Court to Port Jefferson Harbor, and the Indian Trail connects Birchwood Avenue to Walnut Beach.

Poquott is located at 40°57′9″N 73°5′4″W / 40.95250°N 73.08444°W (40.952514, -73.084441).According to the United States Census Bureau, the village has a total area of 0.6 square miles (1.6 km2), of which 0.4 square miles (1.0 km2) is land and 0.2 square miles (0.52 km2), or 27.12%, is water. The Village of Poquott lies in the Town of Brookhaven, within Suffolk County. Poquott is part of the greater Three Village area, and is served by the renowned Three Village Central School District. The Village is in close proximity to Stony Brook University and Stony Brook University Hospital, as well as both Port Jefferson and old Stony Brook village. As of the of 2010 US Census, the Village numbers 953 residents. There are approximately 350 households.
