Shoreham, NY Homes for Sale

Once referred to as Woodville Landing, the area was renamed Wardenclyffe by developer James Warden who created a summer retreat and attracted Nikola Tesla to build research facilities nearby. Shoreham incorporated in 1913 and was generally a summer resort until the 1960s, when it rapidly converted to a year-round community because of nearby job prospects in the Brookhaven National Laboratory and Grumman.

Local Area Information

The village of Shoreham is a waterfront community in the Town of Brookhaven, Suffolk County, on the North Shore of Long Island, New York. Immediately to its west is Rocky Point and to its east is the unincorporated neighborhood of East Shoreham, which is customarily also called Shoreham Village by many locals and with which it shares the same post office with the 11786 ZIP code. The northern shores of the village look out on the relaxing waters and lovely views of the Long Island Sound.

With a land area of 0.45 square miles in the 2020 US Census, Shoreham was the second smallest village in the Town of Brookhaven, next to Poquott, and the sixth smallest among Suffolk County’s 32 villages. Residential districts are entirely made up of single-family homes, many of which are waterfront properties and some are luxury homes with pools, horse properties or rentals. A few have addresses with the 11778 ZIP code.

Shoreham Village remains vibrant and connected today and has a strong sense of community, a culture of involvement and caring for neighbors as well as a profound commitment to its welfare, present, and future. Residents are very much involved in leisure activities, such as water activities and tennis, and observe a number of long-time traditions and celebrations, including Fourth of July and the yearly Labor Day tennis match with Wading River since 1924.

Members of the Rocky Point Fire Department provide Shoreham Village with fire protection and rescue services. The area is patrolled by the 7th Precinct of the Suffolk County Police Department.
