Sands Point Real Estate

Sands Point is a village located at the northernmost tip of the Cow Neck Peninsula on theNorth Shore of Long Island in Nassau County, New York, United States. The Incorporated Village of Sands Point lies within the town of North Hempstead. The population was 2,786 at the 2000 census.

The village was incorporated in 1910. In 1917, the village absorbed the communities of Barkers Point and Motts Point. It was originally owned by three families, the Sands,Vanderbilts, and Cornwells. In 1910 Daniel Guggenheim bought his 216-acre (0.87 km2)Hempstead House, formerly Castle Gould. His son Harry Guggenheim, founder ofNewsday, later erected his estate "Falaise" nearby. Today, the estate is part of the Sands Point Preserve, notable for a medieval fair run by Medieval Scenarios and Recreations, Ltd., which is held every September. In the 1960s, under less strict building codes, many homes were built on 1-acre (4,000 m2) parcels. Current zoning allows subdivisions of 2 acres (8,100 m2) or more.

The Sands Family Cemetery was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1992.

Sands Point is bordered almost entirely by water - Long Island Sound to the north, Manhasset Bay to the west and Hempstead Harbor on the east. It shares land borders with the villages of Port Washington, Port Washington North, Manorhaven, and Soundview.
