Farmingville NY Homes for Sale

Farmingville was once home to the Bald Hill Ski Bowl, the largest ski facility to ever run on Long Island and the only one that had overhead cable lift. Though it closed and many businesses in the downtown area were boarded up, the community has grown and developed and today maintains its vision for the future while working to preserve its rich and storied past.

Local Area Information

Farmingville is an unincorporated neighborhood and census-designated place (CDP) in the Town of Brookhaven, Suffolk County, on Long Island, New York. The nearest communities are Selden to the north, Coram to the northeast, Medford to the southeast, Holtsville to the south and Centereach to the west and northwest. The Brookhaven Town Hall lies east of Bald Hill in Farmingville.

While most of the hamlet’s residential houses are single-family homes, there is a multifamily housing site in the gated townhouse community of Fairfield Hills South at Farmingville. Real estate options include rentals, undeveloped vacant lots, homes with pools, potential mother-daughter, and new constructions, including those in the Hickory Hills area.

The commercial district is heavily concentrated along the historic Horseblock Road and the southern portion of North Ocean Avenue, also known as Patchogue-Mount Sinai Road and County Road 83, while a few businesses are along Mooney Pond Road.

Farmingville’s landscape features a series of elevations, four of which are called Breakneck Hill, Danger Hill, Telescope Hill and the better known Bald Hill. The first two make up the hills occupied by the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Park and offer overlooks along the Patchogue-Mount Sinai Road. Telescope Hill, the highest point of elevation in Brookhaven Town, was once the site of the Farmingville fire lookout tower used for detecting wildfires in the erstwhile rural area and is now home to radio tower facilities.

East of Telescope Hill is Baldwin Hill, also one of the highest points of elevation on Long Island and only slightly lower than Telescope Hill by about a meter. Once the site of Long Island’s largest ski destination, it is now the location of the Bald Hill Cultural Park, which features the 20-acre, 3,000-seat Long Island Community Hospital Amphitheater, an outdoor venue for concerts and other events with a vast lawn area capable of seating 6,500 or more. Much of Farmingville uses the 11738 ZIP code, while the rest uses 11784.
