Connectivity and promise are drawing homebuyers to Holbrook. The Suffolk County hamlet abounds with residential possibilities, says Angie Carpenter, Islip Town supervisor.
“There are beautiful single-family homes, and lots of apartments and condo complexes,” she says. “People can stay in the community they love for their life cycle because of the housing options available.”
The Holbrook Country Club is a Town-run public facility that offers an 18-hole golf course, a restaurant, catering space, and a playground, Carpenter says.
Close to major transportation hubs such as Long Island MacArthur Airport, the Long Island Expressway, Sunrise Highway and Ronkonkoma’s electrified railroad line, Holbrook has few homes for sale. “Homes usually sell during the first open house,” says Ann Lodestro, of Century 21 Castle Realty. The most popular home styles are Colonials, Lodestro says. “It used to be ranches but not anymore. Buyers feel Colonials make a better impression.”
