Let me get this out of the way from the start. If you live in South Setauket you probably have had to spell the name of this town quite a few times, especially when giving your address on the phone. So there, that is the only negative!
South Setauket is a small community South of Nesconsett Hwy, extending from Heatherwood Golf Course in the east to Nichols Road in the west. The town includes several beautiful neighborhoods that were developed starting in the 1960's all the way until the early 2000's. It is composed mainly of single family homes, but there is also a beautiful upscale condo community, two assisted living senior communities and one rental complex.
South Setauket is located in the Township of Brookhaven, and is part of the prestigious Three Village School District. We are located very close to Stony Brook University and Suffolk Community College campuses, and within easy reach to three major hospitals.
We are spoiled by being in close proximity (within ten minute drive) to top notch shopping malls, fine dining and entertainment, great town beaches and pools. Our town is peppered with sports facilities and beautiful parks. We are located quite close to nature trails for awesome hiking and single track mountain biking, and also to public landing sites.
We are located smack in the middle of Long Island. Visiting or commuting to "the city" or the Twin Forks of the east end via car or train is quite easy, and there is even a ferry to travel to and from Connecticut in the next town.
Oh, by the way... if you move here, you may also need to learn how to pronounce South Setauket!
