The North Fork’s quaint bed and breakfasts, bucolic horse farms, vineyards, beaches and boat life make it an idyllic getaway. But who could blame a vacationer for wanting more than a slice of this haven? It’s primed for purchase too.

Paradise doesn’t come cheap here. Estates can cost between $800,000 and $6 million, more or less. They can come in many forms—waterfront homes, B&Bs, horse farms, and even artist’s retreats for creatives. The scarcity of these unique estates only enhances their exclusivity and preserves their value over time.

So you could say the investment potential here on the North Fork is sound, no pun intended. Depending on your lifestyle, finding the right property can be a challenge. However, local real estate agents are an enthusiastic resource.

If you’re in the market, we tapped some of North Fork’s top brokers and agents for expert tips that can help you land your dream home. You’ll discover some prime locations, scenic beauty, and a recreational wonderland on this journey. A little insider knowledge goes a long way in this competitive market.

“Buyers often prioritize spacious layouts and multiple bedrooms to accommodate family and friends comfortably,” said Jerry Cibulski, a broker for Century 21 Albertson Realty. “They also value properties with potential for rental income, allowing them to offset maintenance costs and potentially generate income when not in use.”

You can look up eCodes online, and lean on your agent or attorneys to avoid potential municipality pitfalls. Novel estates discussed here rarely come to market, so if you find one, jump on the research and act quickly.

With that in mind, here’s some agent/broker advice for purchasing some of the aforementioned estates unique to the North Fork.
