So, You’re Thinking of Moving to Old Brookville
Luxurious Old Brookville epitomizes the Gold Coast of Long Island. Only 30 miles from Manhattan, the sprawling, lush North Shore village is a perfect respite for celebs like Jennifer Lopez who lived here, as well as for those who seek verdant acres of privacy, pastoral horse farms and an esteemed school district -not to mention a wealth of enormous, lovely homes.
Old Brookville also boasts the “closest vineyard to Broadway”-the 20-acre Banfi Old Brookville Vineyard, which produces Chardonnay exclusively. Banfi’s World Headquarters are also located here in a 60-room Elizabethan manor.
Although Old Brookville is not on the water, sand and surf are just a splash away. As part of The Town of Oyster Bay, Old Brookville residents can get a beach pass for entry to private Tobay, a stunning Atlantic Ocean beach, located just east of Jones Beach (about a half-hour’s drive from Old Brookville.) Who needs the Hamptons?
There isn’t a downtown in Old Brookville, but there is Young’s Farm, the darling of the village, where locals go for just-picked produce, as well as fresh baked goods.
There are also two country clubs in Old Brookville-Cedar Brook and Brookville Country Club-each with a challenging 18-hole championship golf course.
And the respected North Shore School District is comprised of three elementary schools (including one in Glen Head which serves Old Brookville,) and a middle school and high school, both of which are located in nearby Glen Head.
The housing market in Old Brookville is typically million-dollar-plus Estate Homes, Colonials, Manor Houses, as well as a scattering of new developments like The Estates at Green Fields.
