The prince might want to stop by Long Island this weekend when five area brokerage firms hold an open house event in Centre Island, rocker Billy Joel’s stamping grounds.
Almost every home for sale in the village will host an open house from 1 to 4 p.m. Jan. 29, some by appointment only. There will be 11 homes (including this one), ranging in price from $549,000 to $11.95 million.
“Centre Island is a beautiful place, but people think it’s a little removed, which it isn’t at all,” says Barbara Candee of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty. “It’s the Hamptons alternate because it has everything — the wonderful views, the waterfront, places for boats, beaches. Almost every house has either water views or it’s waterfront.”
