Old Westbury Real Estate

The village of Old Westbury, Originally a Quaker settlement, on the North Shore of Long Island, is famous for being the seat of many of New York's (and America's) wealthiest families, including the Phipps, Vanderbilts, Whitneys, Webbs, Du Ponts, Winthrops, Mortimers, Belmonts and Huttons.  Being the jewel of the Gold Coast, Old Westbury homes consist of large private properties, and breathtaking residences, while maintaining the old world charm and elegance. 

Shortly after the Civil War, it was discovered by the New York elite to be a perfect place to raise horses, and to hunt foxes and play polo at the Meadow Brook Club, the longest-running polo club in the United States. The Village of Old Westbury was incorporated in 1924, separating itself from Westbury, the adjacent area that housed many of the families of the construction and building staffs for the Old Westbury mansions.

Old Westbury Gardens, an expansive public garden sits on the grounds of the former Phipps estate. Three golf courses lie within the village's boundaries.  The Old Westbury Golf and Country Club sits on part of a 530-acre property, and the Glen Oaks Club, on a 650-acre estate.

Old Westbury is served by three school districts: Jericho Union Free School District, which has about 3,200 students in three elementary schools, a middle school and a high school, East Williston Union Free School District, with 1,800 students in an elementary school, a middle school and a high school, and Westbury Union Free School District, which has about 3,800 students in four elementary schools, one middle school and one high school.

The village of Old Westbury, just 25 minutes away from Manhattan, is home to some of the most opulent and expansive estates on Long Island.  According to Bloomberg/Businessweek, Old Westbury is the second "richest" town in the United States, trailing behind only Palm Beach, Florida.
