The Wind Watch Golf & Country Club in Hauppauge, New York, a 173 acres privately-owned and adjoining the Wind Watch Marriott Hotel, will soon be home to 228 new residential units. This lush valley of rolling greens dotted with ponds will become the backdrop for new housing, with 228 residential units to be built around the fairways of the 18-hole golf course by the holiday Organization of Westbury.
Sales at the project, to be called Wind Watch Golf & Country Club are set to start July 15, and the first houses are expected by April next year.
Beginning in October, construction will begin on the residences in Hauppauge, which will range in size from two-bedroom condominium apartments in two-story buildings to five-bedroom detached houses. A total of 148 detached houses will be built on lots that average 55 by 130 feet and will consist of 20 buildings each with 4 apartments.
35 of the 173 acres will be used for new housing. Except for 15 detached homes, all units will have a view of the fairways and many will have pond views. The property currently has nine ponds, and four more are being added, including one with a waterfall.
An apartment with 1,650 square feet and two bedrooms will be $195,000 and a detached house with five bedrooms will be $290,000. You will be able to choose between five different detached houses, one of which will have the master bedroom on the first floor.
‘We are offering two totally different products for people who like golf-course settings – one for the family market and one for young executives and empty nesters,” said Elliot Monter, the Holiday Organization president. Gerald has been the chief executive since the company was founded in 1951 by his father.
Mr. Monter says that the main living areas and master bedrooms of the units will look out onto the golf course. There will be ‘super rooms’ that combine the kitchen, dining room and family room, he said. The front courtyards will be surrounded by stone walls to create privacy. Buildings with condominiums will feature separate entrances for each apartment.
The detached houses will all be part of a homeowners’ association, which will maintain the common areas and exteriors as well as individual yards. The homeowners’ association will also include a condominium association.
Other than a manned gatehouse, there will be no amenities in the development, but there will be large backyards for swimming pools.
Those living in Hamlet at Wind Watch will be able to join the Wind Watch Golf & Country Club, located on a hill overlooking the golf course. In addition to a health club, outdoor pool, and tennis courts, a cocktail lounge and card rooms will also be added after a $1 million upgrade. The existing restaurant, which serves breakfast and lunch to the public, will be enlarged to accommodate 128 diners.
Residents will be able to use the club’s facilities by purchasing a monthly membership for $100. They will pay the regular rate to play golf, which currently is $62 to $75 a day depending on the day of the week.
