The North Shore town of Oyster Bay is one of three in Long Island’s Nassau County. Within its borders are 18 villages and 18 hamlets (one with the same name), including many of the more affluent communities of Long Island’s North Shore. Many of these villages and hamlets have shores on Oyster Bay Harbor, an inlet of Long Island Sound. Long Island’s North Shore was known as the “Gold Coast” through the early-to mid-20th century, home to impressive mansions, some of which date back to the Revolutionary War.

The village of East Hills is one of the country’s most exclusive communities. Neighborhoods like Syosset and Woodbury are known for their excellent schools—they’re rated among the country’s finest—and a convenient suburban lifestyle with great shopping and restaurants, historic districts and homes along tree-lined avenues that, for many, symbolize the American ideal. The more affordable Bethpage, Hicksville and Farmingdale offer quiet neighborhoods with a high quality of life and a great sense of community.

The rural landscape in parts of Oyster Bay hosts a number of wildlife sanctuaries like the 3,200 acre National Wildlife Refuge, home to New York State’s only remaining commercial oyster farm, which produces 90% of the state’s oyster harvest.

Some notable past residents have included Theodore Roosevelt (His home is now part of the Sagamore Hill National Historic Site and is open to the public by guided tour, with almost all of its original furnishings.) and singer Billy Joel who put the town on the map with songs of his teen years in a “town known as Oyster Bay, Long Island.”

Meticulously cared for, the estate exhibits a delightful range of vistas from woodland and meadows to sweeping lawns accented by a myriad of flowers, shrubs, and majestic trees.
