The “Gold Coast” community of Old Westbury is comprised of gently rolling wooded hills and some of Long Island’s most expansive and opulent estates. This exclusive enclave was home to many of the most influential families in our nation’s history including the Vanderbilt’s, Morgan’s, Guggenheims, Astor’s, and Whitney’s. The community is home to the birthplace and longest-running polo club in the nation, the Meadowbrook Polo Club. Within the village, home owners will find some of the most exclusive golf clubs in the northeast. Additionally, Old Westbury has gorgeous public gardens and the beautiful campuses of Long Island University, the New York Institute of Technology and the State University of New York.
The Long Island Expressway borders Old Westbury to the south which affords home owners convenient access to New York City. Originally settled in 1658, Old Westbury has roughly 5,000 residents who enjoy the prestige of owning in an iconic and celebrated community recently identified as the most expensive New York suburb by Business Week and tenth in the nation. Homes in Old Westbury generally have very large, high quality lots. Architectural styles are diverse as are the ages of the properties. Depending on where you live, children either attend school in the Jericho or East Williston school districts, both recognized for excellence.
