June/July 2011 Haute Habitats

imageThe Village of Upper Brookville, located within the Town of Oyster Bay, is named after the brook that used to run along its main road, Wolver Hollow. It is one of three parts of Brookville (there is also Brookville and Old Brookville), and even though it is physically lower than its surrounding areas, the name stuck. While visiting Upper Brookville, check out the Sagamore Hill National Historic Site, home of Theodore Roosevelt, the 26th President of the United States, just a few minutes away. Or, visit one if its nearby museums like the Raynham Hall Museum (http://www.raynhamhallmuseum.org) or the Planting Fields Arboretum (http://www.plantingfields.org). The Tilles Center For The Performing Arts, located on the CW Post Campus, features many activities for the family from concerts to plays (http://www.tillescenter.org). And for a day outdoors, Upper Brookville has three parks to offer, Hickox Field, Riggs Park and Stecklow Gardens. Places to dine include Wild Honey Dining & Wine, which serves creative American cuisine using the freshest ingredients from nearby producers (http://www/wildhoneyrestaurant.com) and try Canterbury Ales Oyster Bar & Grill, for great seafood with a twist (http://www.canterburyalesrestaurant.com).

This one of a kind, private from the road, spacious 4-bedroom home, located in a cul-de-sac has lots to offer its next family. This contemporary styled home features a 3-car garage, indoor heated pool with spa surrounded by lush green plants, a wet bar, cedar deck, hard wood floors, and a stunning view of Oyster Bay Harbor, Centre Island, LI Sound and the coastline of Connecticut.
