One of Long Island’s premier residential development companies has introduced an unparalleled resort-style living community to the region: The Vineyards at Blue Point. Designed by the development firm Ornstein Leyton Company (OLC), the Vineyards offers active adults the perfect balance of sophistication, comfort and convenience for the ever increasing 55-and-over population on Long Island.
Ideally situated along the South Shore and surrounded by 28 acres of protected natural buffers, the community offers the peacefulness of a private, gated setting, combined with the convenience of easy access to Sunrise Highway right outside the front gate. The Vineyards at Blue Point is close to all that residents need and love about Long Island living.
The community offers 280 custom designed homes each with 2 bedrooms, 2 to 2 ½ baths, with luxurious finishes and fixtures. “The homes we have designed at this spectacular community are second to none. We have six models to choose from, including ground floor flats with optional finished basements, second floor flats with storage basements and optional elevators as well as spacious multi-level townhomes boasting over 3,000 square feet with optional finished basements and loft spaces, and all with a one car garage. We have a home for every lifestyle, and with the success we’ve had so far, it’s obvious our future homeowners agree,” remarks Alec Ornstein, a partner in the development firm.
The spacious 7,500+ square-foot “Vineyards Club” overlooking spectacular fountained ponds, recently opened for the enjoyment of residents. The magnificent clubhouse includes a concierge, an outdoor heated salt-water pool, fire pit, barbecue area, bocce courts, tot lot for grandchildren, state-of-the-art fitness center, plus a yoga and aerobics studio, great room, billiards and card rooms and a bar lounge. The Vineyards Club will also have exclusive on-site physical therapy and is large enough for community events or a comfortable spot for the big game, yet also offers the opportunity for quiet card games or just enjoying a late afternoon cocktail with friends and neighbors.
Early on, OLC visualized the potential this unique property could offer. Formerly used as an entertainment venue as a drive-in, then a multiplex movie theatre, the property has been repurposed for this spectacular residential community. Surrounded by 28 acres of preserved land, it offers a serene, bucolic setting. Two ponds further add to the beauty of the Vineyards and provide a quiet respite area along with a nature trail that surrounds the entire community.
The developers envisioned a community that would provide high-end amenities and a vibrant social life as well as a convenient location to shopping and dining. “We know that the active adult population wants a fun, maintenance-free, lifestyle community – one that would provide them with the opportunity to stay near their children and grandchildren, their friends, their doctors, their spiritual home and more,” said Mr. Ornstein. “At the same time, we know they want to live where they don’t have to get in their cars every time they want to visit their friends, take a swim or go for a walk. We designed The Vineyards at Blue Point with our own friends and family in mind.”
OLC takes great pride in the communities they develop and the homes they build for their residents and The Vineyards at Blue Point continues this tradition of excellence.
