Sayville can best be described as a beautiful hamlet with pristine sandy beaches bordering Long Island's Great South Bay, one of New York's exquisite summer  playgrounds that's a magnet for sun bathers, swimmers, boaters, and sport fishermen. And of course, we can't forget the kids who find great delight in the calm water and beaches.

Home buyers interested in Long Island real estate frequently list Sayville as one of their top choices because of its outstanding real estate values, school system, and proximity to the 26 miles long and almost three miles wide Great South Bay, one of the largest bays on Long Island’s south shore.

One Of the Best Places To Live

In 2007, Sayville was selected by CNN Money as one of the best places in the country to live. The judging criteria was based on quality of life, real estate value, school system, and a vibrant, stable community. There are some towns that have everything anyone could want from a rich sense of community, economic opportunities, excellent schools, safe neighborhoods, cultural activities, plus family centered attractions. This is a perfect description of Sayville, one of those very unique places that is an ideal place to live.

Sayville homes for sale offer buyers a wide array of choices. Imagine for a moment living in a spacious Tudor home on two acres with open spaces, elegant decks, breathtaking views of the Great South Bay and quiet tree lined streets and avenues.
