Long Island’s largest village, at 9.3 square miles, Lloyd Harbor is situated along the Long Island Sound and offers the “coastal lifestyle that goes along with it,” says 23-year resident Elena D’Agostino of Lucky to Live Here Realty.
That includes waterfront homes, nearly 20 miles of shoreline and open land that makes up more than 30 percent of the village, says Mayor Jean Thatcher.
“You don’t get this kind of natural beauty where you have this many miles of shoreline and open space in most places that are commutable to New York,” Thatcher says.
At Lloyd Harbor Village Park, which is a private beach, the tennis courts have recently been resurfaced and upgrades have been made to the beach house within the last year, Thatcher says. The beach, which also includes docking, mooring and storage racks for kayaks and canoes, offers a summer camp for village residents in first through eighth grades.
The area is also home to Caumsett State Historic Park Preserve, a nearly 1,500-acre park overlooking the Sound that offers hiking and biking trails, cross-county skiing, fishing, an equestrian center and other activities.
“To have a New York State park right in a residential area like the village of Lloyd Harbor is pretty amazing,” D’Agostino says.
Also in the village are Target Rock National Wildlife Refuge, the Seminary of the Immaculate Conception, and West Neck Beach, which is run by the Town of Huntington.
A mixture of architectural styles is found in the village, though Colonials are most common, D’Agostino says. Prices, she adds, can range from just under $1 million to well into eight figures, noting a 48-acre waterfront estate currently on the market for $55 million. Most properties have the minimum two-acre zoning, while some larger estates are four acres and more.
Because Lloyd Harbor is a strictly residential area, many village residents do their shopping in nearby Huntington village, says D’Agostino.
Lloyd Harbor features its own police force, highway maintenance and sanitation and recycling pickup.
