Within the prestigious Town of Oyster Bay on the North Shore of Long Island, you will find the charming unincorporated communities of Syosset and Woodbury. These towns, originally farming villages have collectively become vibrant and alluring suburbs with quick and convenient access to businesses, shopping and entertainment.
With approximately 16,000 residents, the Syosset-Woodbury community has no autonomous governing body. It does have its own school district, which is beneficial to prospective homebuyers with children. Another benefit is the multiple housing options within Syosset-Woodbury. In the 1950s, developments like Birchwood Park and Clearview Village spawned the growth of this enclave. Those homes sit on seventy by one hundred foot lots. More exclusive developments, such as The Ridge, The Estates, and The Gates, appeared in the 1960s offering one and two-acre lots. More recently, new construction homes in Rodeo Drive and Windemere offer a different style and price point for well-heeled buyers. The Rodeo Drive neighborhood is comprised of large contemporary homes in north Syosset while the gated community, Windemere, includes a four-acre lake and tennis courts.
In addition to these many single-family home communities, condominiums are prevalent in the Syosset-Woodbury real estate market. Woodland Pond, a 240-unit complex, encircles an old-fashioned swimming hole (a deep place for swimming in a stream or river), two swimming pools and tennis courts. Syosset-Woodbury is a unique neighborhood providing home buyers with terrific home and lifestyle options.
