Miller Place, NY Homes for Sale

After World War II, Miller Place experienced a rapid population growth, and most of the beach houses were transformed into year-round residences to accommodate the growing population. It became a commuter town since many of its residents worked in New York City. The community grew, as did the demand for adequate schools and health services, and most of the old farms have been developed into housing or commercial sites.

Local Area Information

Miller Place is an unincorporated neighborhood and census-designated place (CDP) on the famed North Shore of Long Island, New York, in the Town of Brookhaven, Suffolk County. It shares land borders with Coram and Middle Island on the south as well as Sound Beach and Rocky Point on the east. On the west is Mount Sinai, with which Miller Place shares many community resources, institutions and traditions, and on the northwest is Mount Sinai Harbor. A stretch of beach along the northern shoreline overlooks the Long Island Sound.

The land in Miller Place consists of hilly terrain in some areas, generally the ones close to the beach, and is fit for farming. But most farmsteads have given way to non-agricultural businesses and residential single-family homes, which now largely constitute the hamlet, though there are also several vacant lots and condos, such as those in the gated community of Country Pointe. The properties may be homes with pools, new constructions, rentals, luxury houses or waterfront homes with glorious water views of the Sound or harbor.

The commercial district is concentrated along Route 25A, a major east-west thoroughfare that bisects the area, while other shops, strip malls and services are located along Echo Avenue.

Some restaurants and inns are housed in the quaint historic structures along North Country Road. Also around this road are a number of other contributing buildings in the Miller Place Historic District, the first historic district in the Town of Brookhaven. The oldest house featured in this district was the home of William Miller, a grandson of Andrew Miller, and serves as the venue for the annual Miller Place-Mount Sinai Country Fair. All neighborhoods use the 11764 ZIP code.

Miller Place is about 60 miles northeast of Manhattan, New York City, and served by the Port Jefferson Station via the Port Jefferson Branch of the Long Island Rail Road. Traveling to or from the city by car takes about an hour and 40 minutes to two hours and 10 minutes via the Long Island Expressway or Northern State Parkway.

Beaches & Parks

Cordwood Landing County Park boasts more than 70 acres of densely-treed area with extensive trails for hiking and walking leashed dogs.

This property was originally Girl Scout Camp Barstow before it was acquired by Suffolk County, and is centrally located in the Miller Place Historic District.
