E Patchogue NY:Heron Pointe

Situated in E. Patchogue New York, this may be Long Island’s South Shore Best Kept Secret. Heron Pointe On The Beach is a lovely Single Family Home community overlooking the Great South Bay.

Opened in 1992 in Suffolk County, in the town of Brookhaven, Heron Pointe is a unique Water View community. There are only 36 private homes situated on 41 prime acres surrounded by Spinnaker Lane. Heron Pointe is a distinctive gated community with amenities that include a clubhouse, pool, the private beach, boat slips for all homes, tennis and the boardwalk to the marina.  Each home here, which is serviced by the South County School District #4, has its own boat slip at the marina. This is on a private canal that opens onto the Great South Bay.   
These Single Family Homes at Heron Pointe include central air conditioning, gas heat and 2 car garages. Most are Single Family Colonial homes, but there are a few attached in a group.  
Rarely do these homes become available for sale in this pet friendly community, but Lawrence “Larry” and Sheila Agranoff have access to all the data of the current availability.
One of the reasons Heron Pointe is unique is that these are Single Family Homes, within a code gated entry, run by a Homeowner’s Association. The monthly common charge fee covers landscaping and snow removal. Any exterior work must be voted on by the Board. To reach this community, take Route 27A East To South Country Road.

Also, below are some helpful ideas on making the tree cutting adventure a memorable experience.

  • Dress warm when visiting any of these locations – boots are a good idea.
  •  Call the farm to make sure weather conditions are favorable and that the type of tree you’re looking for is available.
  •  Check to see if you will need tools like a saw and netting to pack up your tree, or if they are provided.
  • Cut the tree as close to the ground as possible so you’ll have enough trunk left to cut it a second time at home. This second cut allows the tree to soak up more water, which makes for a healthier tree.
  •  Once your tree is placed in your home,  keep the tree away from direct heat to help keep it looking and smelling fresh throughout the holiday season.
  • Water your tree daily.

Most of all…Enjoy!
