West Hampton Dunes NY Homes for Sale

West Hampton Dunes Village lies on Westhampton Island in the Town of Southampton, Suffolk County, on Long Island, New York. The small, beautifully restored beach community features a glorious white sand beach overlooking the wide sweep of the Atlantic Ocean and plenty of charming homes with some of the finest bay and ocean vistas on Long Island’s South Shore.

Local Area Information

The village of West Hampton Dunes is located on the stretch of the Westhampton barrier island parallel to the South Shore of Long Island, New York, and is among the several neighborhoods that constitute the Town of Southampton in Suffolk County. It is bounded on the west by Brookhaven Town’s Cupsogue Beach County Park, which is part of the Fire Island National Seashore, and on the east by a small region of the Westhampton hamlet, beyond which is the village of Westhampton Beach.

After being left unprotected for over three decades and a series of storms nearly devastated the area, West Hampton Dunes incorporated as a village in 1993, becoming one of the youngest villages on Long Island. It finally underwent a successful beach restoration process, was named one of the top restored beaches in America by the American Shore and Beach Preservation Association and flourished into the vibrant beachfront community that it is today.

With an area of 0.33 square miles in the 2020 US Census, West Hampton Dunes was the smallest village in Southampton Town and the fourth smallest among Suffolk County’s 32 villages, next to Ocean Beach, Saltaire and Dering Harbor. It is surrounded by the waters of Moriches Bay on the north and the Atlantic Ocean on the south, hence more than half of its housing stock are waterfront homes that command fantastic water views of the bay or ocean.

West Hampton Dunes contains over 300 real estate properties, nearly all of which are residential single-family homes. A number of these are year-round dwellings, and the rest are seasonal vacation homes or rental properties for those who seek a Hamptons-like summer experience. There are many 4-bedroom homes, larger and more expensive luxury residences as well as houses with pools, first-floor bedrooms and other features and amenities. Property options in the area also include new constructions and vacant lots.

The post office in nearby Westhampton Beach provides mail service to West Hampton Dunes, and the two villages share the 11978 ZIP code.
