Located in the township where it got its name--Oyster Bay in Nassau County, New York--the village of Oyster Bay Cove was incorporated on December 29, 1931. It's one of 36 villages & hamlets in the Town of Oyster Bay, with its boundaries extended twice to its current limits: once in October 1932, and the second time in November 1963. Oyster Bay Cove Real Estate has 2-acre zoning, and maintaining the country feel brought about by open spaces was actually one of the reasons why the Village was organized in the first place.
As of July 2008, Oyster Bay Cove's population numbered about 2,299; having a land area of 4.20 square miles gives the community a relatively low population density, with only 547 persons per square mile. On the other hand, the cost of living is higher than ordinary, measuring 175.2 as compared to the U.S. average of 100, which is only indicative of the equally high quality of life in the area.
Serene and wooded properties characterize much of the available Oyster Bay Cove Real Estate. The landscape is predominantly dotted with charming Colonial homes nestled in private lots and usually surrounded with lush vegetation. The same can be said for the numerous ranch or farmhouse-style Brookville homes for sale, pleasant country cottages, and even contemporary houses in Oyster Bay Cove; every house has an appealing, relaxing quality that makes one glad to be a resident of this quaint village.
