Lloyd Harbor Real Estate

DARKNESS does fall in paradise, a word some people who live in wealthy, woodsy Lloyd Harbor use almost automatically to describe their spacious, rolling, more than nine-square-mile waterfront village.

In fact, it gets dark early on short winter days because the entirely residential village, where homes now cost $1 million and up, has no streetlights. Indeed, in a move that put it in the forefront of the ''dark sky'' movement on Long Island, Lloyd Harbor long ago clamped down on residential outdoor lighting whose glare intrudes on neighbors.

Such lights can violate a village ethic of preserving the night and promoting gracious privacy, but in Lloyd Harbor, which is on the North Shore of extreme western Suffolk County, they would shine from afar. Minimum lot size here is two acres, and not a few of the village's 1,250 homes sit on more acres than that.

Buyers are drawn by a sense that they will inhabit a wonderfully rarified place that is not impossibly far from New York City -- not much more than an hour's drive away in optimum traffic conditions -- yet one that feels and even looks, within limits, like the country.

Their children will be able to attend classes in the Cold Spring Harbor Union Free School District, an elite public school system, which sent 95 percent of its graduates to four-year colleges last year.

HOUSING ranges from a sprinkling of true estates and historic older homes to colonials, contemporaries, brick mansionettes built on property of the former Friends World College and low-slung but supersized ranches and farm ranches, which have partial second floors, laying back off private roads. Mature trees, including a massive black oak dating to 1450 that is believed to be the oldest surviving black oak in the county, rise from roadsides and lawns and fields. Water views are at every turn.

''I think for many of us who live here it really is paradise,'' said the village mayor, Lee Hairr, the president of an environmental consulting company in Garden City and a village resident for 14 years. ''I consider it the most pleasant and delightful place I have ever lived, and I have lived in several places.''

Mr. Hairr, who grew up in North Carolina, said the setting was all but perfect. ''It not only has the ambience of all the natural resources of our village, it provides a privacy and a quality of life that you find somewhat rare, at least in this area.'' The village is within the town of Huntington.

Spacious by the standards of Long Island villages, Lloyd Harbor occupies a peninsula jutting northward into Long Island Sound. It is divided into two parts: West Neck -- a name nobody uses -- and Lloyd Neck. In all, it has about 20 miles of shoreline along Cold Spring Harbor, Lloyd Harbor, Huntington Harbor, Huntington Bay and Long Island Sound.

West Neck begins a five-minute drive from the center of the hamlet of Huntington, a vital downtown of shops, stores, restaurants and boutiques convenient to the village, which has not a single shop or commercial storefront. Lloyd Neck, once called Horse Head because of its distinctive shape, is more remote and not the kind of place to forget buying milk on the way home.

The two-lane main village thoroughfare, West Neck Road, leads northward from Huntington hamlet past the Lloyd Harbor village police station, where a Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer topiary with a red Christmas ornament for a nose stood guard during the holiday season.

After crossing to Lloyd Neck on a narrow causeway, the road becomes Lloyd Harbor Road and skirts the narrow body of water with the same name. Connecting roads throughout the village are private and maintained by residents.
