       Merrick Woods

In the heart of Merrick, just a short stroll from town and the Long Island Railroad, sits a pristine and much acclaimed area called Merrick Woods.  The majestic old trees have borne witness to generation after generation of Merokians growing up and growing old here. With tree lined streets, a wide variety of homestyles, and easy proximity to everything, it feels like a nurturing place, the grande dame of Merrick and this part of Long Island's south Shore.

Merrick Woods

Once they see it, so many people choose Merrick Woods as their destination for a home purchase.  There are so many benefits to living in "The Woods."  On Long Island's south shore of Nassau County, it's a 41 minute ride on the LIRR into midtown. For much of Merrick Woods, you're within easy walking distance to the railroad and in comfortable commuting distance to New York City.  Merrick is the third stop on the Babylon branch of the Long Island Railroad, after which the train expresses into Jamaica, on it's way into Manhattan's Penn Station.

The schools of Merrick Woods fall into three districts: on the north end, the children go to North Merrick schools (SD #29), the southern end attend Merrick Schools (SD# 25) and on the east side they attend N. Bellmore schools (SD# 4).  Both Merrick school districts feed into Merrick Avenue Middle school and Calhoun High School.  Only the elementary school level is affected by the difference in district.  North goes to Camp Avenue, while south attend Chatterton.

A woodsy area, with wonderful old trees lining most of its streets, Merrick Woods is home to many different styles of homes.  You'll find capes, colonials, an occasional split level, ranches, hi ranches and a number of newly constructed homes dotting the landscape.

There's a feeling of permanence in Merrick Woods.  Originally developed in the mid 20th century, many homes have changed with the times.  Irrespective of the updates, they manage to maintain a homogeneous feel.  Families interact here is a way that harkens back to a quieter time, when family and friends gathered around the hearth, enjoying each other's company just for the joy of it.

Merrick Woods in Long Island, New York -- Buy a Home, Buy a Lifestyle
Geri Sonkin, Long Island Real Estate & Staging Expert (Douglas Elliman Real Estate 516-457-7103)

real estate in Merrick Woods

Buying a home in Merrick Woods, on Long Island's south shore  is more about lifestyle than simply bricks and mortar.  People fall in love with the tree lined streets, the pristine properties and the eclectic home choices.  They feel blessed to be in an area where children happily ride their bikes, play street hockey and know their neighbors.  When Halloween rolls around, you'll find adorably dressed monsters and superheros walking side by side, in prodigious numbers, with their parents strolling along two steps behind.  It feels like community.  It feels like home.

Just a few short years ago, getting into Merrick Woods for first time buyers was often little more than a dream.  They waited for any opportunity to buy a starter home or a fixer upper just to get a foot in the proverbial door of this charming bedroom community.  Then, when the crazy real estate market began its downturn, there was a glimmer of hope.  Fast forward to today and buyers, once unable to call the woods home, are flocking to the area.

Close to the Long Island Railroad with its short 41 scheduled minutes into Manhattan, Merrick is an oft chosen destination for commuters.  The town of Merrick is a very short distance from the famed Jones Beach, great shopping, golf courses and a criss cross of major highways leading to anywhere else on Long Island, Queens or New York City.

Styles of homes in Merrick Woods are many and varied, from the mid century cape cods, to "ranger ranches," colonials, tudors and contemporaries.  Just itching for new construction?  Every once in awhile you can get lucky and find a very special new home.  Right at this moment there is a beautiful, custom colonial that just might fill the bill.

merrick woods new home

Merrick Woods children attend three different school districts, depending on where the property is.  Servicing the eastern part of the woods is school district 4 (Bellmore Schools: Park Avenue Elementary, Grand Avenue Middle School and Mepham High School).  The other two districts are 29 (North Merrick: Camp Avenue Elementary, Merrick Avenue Middle School and Calhoun High School), and 25 (Merrick: Chatterton Elementary, Merrick Avenue Middle School and Calhoun High School).  People often choose this area for its excellent schools.

For a visit to Merrick Woods and currently available homes, just contact me and I'll give you the tour.  You still have time to qualify for either the first time buyer tax credit or the move up credit, but you have to hurry.

Merrick Woods New Construction -- Going Green
Geri Sonkin, Long Island Real Estate & Staging Expert (Douglas Elliman Real Estate 516-457-7103)

The first ENERGY STAR home to be built in Merrick is sprouting up on Woodbine Avenue in Merrick Woods, an amalgam of majestic style, quality and green elements to create an elegant environment with an eye to energy conservation.  Without sacrificing style or livability, the builder is employing the best available technology to create a home that delivers comfort, performance and lower utility bills.  Ever mindful of the escalating cost of energy, coupled with diminishing resources, homes built to ENERGY STAR specifications save homeowners approximately 30% in energy costs while creating a quieter, healthier living environment.

New construction in Merrick Woods

With the brick facade being installed as this is written, the final touches will soon be in place on the exterior of this stately home.  As of this moment, buyers still have the option to choose their own finishes and be part of the design process.  A four bedroom, two and a half bath colonial, it offers 9' ceilings on the first and second floors, an upper level laundry room, granite and stainless appliances in the well laid out gourmet kitchen.  Custom Pella doors and windows, moldings, two zone central air, central vac, hardwood floors and porcelain tile, pavers front and rear, an in ground pool, 200 amp electric are just a few of the additional elements that make this home unique and special.  Unseen but integral to the value of this home is the 2x6 construction on all exterior walls with R19-R24 insulation, employing a hybrid system to improve the thermal efficiency of the structure. 

Though others may follow, this first segue into the world of green construction in Merrick certainly has been done with panache.
