West Islip: Backyards and Boatslips – Marcelle Sussman Fischler of The NY Times interviews James A. Netter

West Islip: Backyards and Boat Slips

Not even a major February snowstorm kept Dragan and Dorota Dejkanovic and their three children, ages 8, 4 and 5 months, from moving into the five-bedroom country Cape on just over half an acre in West Islip, a pretty hamlet on the Great South Bay in Suffolk County.

Coming from a two-bedroom apartment in Forest Hills, the Dejkanovics spent weekends over several months exploring Long Island’s south shore for a place with a good commute to call home.

“The houses were flying off the market” in West Islip, Ms. Dejkanovic said.

With the birth of their third child imminent, they found what they wanted in the Willetts Point neighborhood south of Montauk Highway, where the lots are ample and the homes set back with backyards large enough for children to romp. A private sandy beach is a quick stroll away.“We fell in love with this area,” said Ms. Dejkanovic, who like her husband is an interior designer. “The houses have character.” The homes across the street back a canal, but should the family someday own a boat, their neighborhood association, like most in the area, provides a marina with docking rights.“We fell in love with this area,” said Ms. Dejkanovic, who like her husband is an interior designer. “The houses have character.” The homes across the street back a canal, but should the family someday own a boat, their neighborhood association, like most in the area, provides a marina with docking rights.

A comfortable suburban community, West Islip also promises good schools and an easy commute via the nearby Babylon station of the Long Island Rail Road. It has its own fire department, public library and a galaxy of doctors’ offices near the 537-bed Good Samaritan Hospital. Besides a town marina and beach, it offers quick access over the Robert Moses Causeway to Fire Island beaches at Robert Moses State Park and to fishing at the Captree Boat Basin.

“When you are in Queens, you take a trip to go to the beach,” Ms. Dejkanovic said. “We couldn’t be happier.”

Value also was part of the equation. At $495,000, the eight-room house was “in pretty good condition,” and a suitable house for a family, with an almost open floor plan and a skylit rear extension.

With prices ranging from $249,000 to $3.9 million, West Islip is a magnet for families starting out, including many who grew up locally and others seeking a better deal than in otherwise comparable south shore communities in Nassau County.

“West Islip is a homegrown community; everyone knows each other,” said Tammy Ramsay, a sales associate with Ramsay Realty. “People buy here because they were born here” and renovate or trade up rather than leave. “People invest in this community.”

Four years ago, with his four children out of the nest, David Winter, 61, split his one-acre property in the Sequams Colony section, selling the half with his old home, Normandy-style Tudor. On the other half, he built himself and his wife a smaller Craftsman-style home with the master bedroom on the first level.

“We built it to stay,” Mr. Winter said. With their grown children settled nearby, he and his wife enjoy the beaches, ocean, boating, fishing, family activities and holiday parties at the private Babylon Yacht Club.

They can walk to Roots Gourmand Bistro, a restaurant on Montauk Highway, and attend “big rivalry” lacrosse and football games such as West Islip High School versus East Islip.

What You’ll Find

About 45 miles east of New York City, West Islip is a long and narrow 6.8-square-mile community of 28,335 in the town of Islip. Deer Park and Brentwood are north; Brightwaters and Bay Shore are east. Across the Great South Bay to the south is Fire Island. West Islip is separated from its westerly neighbor, Babylon village, by Sampawams Creek, Hawley’s Lake, Deer Lake and Swan Creek.

Sunrise Highway, with large furniture stores, marine supply shops and a large “auto mall,” cuts an east to west swath through the northern end of the community. To the south, Montauk Highway, Route 27A, is spotted with delicatessens, a florist, a bait shop, doctors’ offices, a CVS and Good Samaritan Hospital. Udall Road, a north-south route, has a few strip malls.

“We are a very mixed bag,” said Nancy Donohue, the president of the West Islip Chamber of Commerce. Vacant storefronts are few.

Housing stock includes smaller ranches, Cape Cods, split-levels and larger colonials on one-acre lots in the prestigious Oak Neck Estates section. Waterfront lots range from a quarter to a half acre. Most north-south streets below Montauk Highway end at the Great South Bay and are backed by canals and creeks. West Islip has “a tremendous amount of waterfront property,” said Joanne Schloen, an associate broker with Coach Realtors.

What You’ll Pay

With 145 homes on the market, West Islip is beginning to bounce back from “a double whammy,” hit first by the economic downturn, and then, just as it was starting to recover, by Hurricane Sandy, said James A. Netter,the broker-owner of Netter Real Estate. The high-end waterfront was slammed the hardest: Some homes were destroyed and others lost 20 percent of their value.

Though few homes sold last year, this spring the market “is as good as it’s been in a long time,” with “multiple offers on homes from $300,000 to $2 million to $2.5 million,” Mr. Netter said.

Prices are “back to 2003-2004 values” but the market “has stabilized and stabilized strong right now. It’s a new beginning.”

Starter homes from the mid $200,000’s to the low $300,000’s can be found north of Sunrise Highway, Ms. Schloen said, and reach into the $500,000 range in neighborhoods like Pine Lake and Country Village.

“The farther south you go, the closer to the water you get, the higher the price,” Ms. Schloen added, with the trade-up middle of the market running from $650,000 to $800,000.

Based on Multiple Listing Service data, the average price from January through April of this year was similar to last year’s at about $350,000, with time on the market averaging 81 days. In 2008, the average price was around $450,000. Thirty-nine homes have sold since the start of the year.

What To Do

The volunteer 50-member West Islip Symphony Orchestra presents four concerts a year. In addition to the nearby Robert Moses State Park, West Islip Marina Park includes baseball fields and a sandy beach, and provides docking for Islip town residents.

The Schools

There are 4,816 students enrolled in the West Islip Public Schools. West Islip High School,for grades 9 to 12, is known for its international baccalaureate world school program, as well as its championship lacrosse team. Students in kindergarten through Grade 5 attend classes at Bayview, Manetuck, Oquenock or Paul J. Bellew elementary schools. Grades 6 to 8 are held at the Beach Street middle school. The latest SAT scores were 494 in critical reading, 511 in math and 488 in writing, compared to New York State scores of 485, 501 and 477 during the same period.

St. John the Baptist Diocesan High School, a Catholic school, has 1,700 students in Grades 9 to 12. Tuition is $8,750 per year. The Bridges Academy, a secular private school that opened in September 2013, has 162 students in preschool through Grade 8. Tuition ranges from about $8,200 for the lower school to $8,990 for Grades 5 to 8.

The Commute

The 7:21 a.m. Long Island Rail Road train from the nearby Babylon station to Penn Station takes an hour and two minutes. A peak ticket costs $14.75 one way; monthly passes are $325. By car, the drive to Midtown takes about an hour and five minutes.

The History

Once a stagecoach stop, later a bed-and-breakfast, and now a shuttered restaurant and catering hall, LaGrange Inn on Montauk Highway dates to the 1750s, according to Joseph De Carlo, the president of the West Islip Association, a community group. CVS acquired the lease to the site, plans to restore the original building to what it looked like in the mid-1800s and move it across the property to face Higbie Lane. The West Islip Association will use the first floor as a museum.
