The Hamptons may get all the hype, but with Manhattanites crowding the South Fork as the season extends past its normal boundaries, the next big Out East destination is on the up-and-up.
The North Fork, the Hamptons’ quirky sibling to the north is the country escape many city dwellers are craving. The thirty mile long spit of land is filled with family farms, waterfront dining, and Long Island’s best wineries.
Labor Day is long gone, but beach season doesn’t have to end. Check out some of the top properties under $2 million available now on the North Fork below.

3 bed, 1.5 bath
5,227 square foot lot
Why move to a beach town? For the beach, of course. That’s why our first pick is this beachfront bungalow with exposed wood ceilings, a sunroom, and an outdoor area that’s perfect for entertaining. And at well under $1M, this shabby-chic three bedroom is ideal for soaking up every second in the sand possible at a reasonable price.
117 Sterling Street in Greenport
3 bed, 3.5 bath
4,500 square feet
Although it’s wedged in between the village of Greenport and the gorgeous Sterling Harbor, this 4,500 square foot home still managed to feel spread out and stately. The colonial-style home comes with beautiful crown molding, a fireplace, and big windows to watch the boats go by.
460 Ruch Lane in Southold
5 bed, 2 bath
2,140 square feet
Though the updated and move-in ready home here is nothing to sneeze at, the real appeal of this listing is the perfect location. A private lane just beyond the town beach takes you to this tree-lined property, where the beautifully landscaped backyard includes a slate patio that looks out over the Hashamomuck River. The wooden deck leads down to the water, perfect for kayaks or paddle boards in the summer and stunning sunsets all winter long.
590 Budds Pond Road in Southold
2 bed, 2 bath
1,560 square feet
The cheapest home on our list, this ranch-style two bedroom in Southold, still comes with major amenities. From picture windows that look onto a waterside dock and across a small harbor to the quaint wood burning stove in the living room, this all-seasons home is also less than a mile from the Peconic Bay Yacht Club, the Old Field Vineyards, and the town of Southold.
2820 Shipyard Lane in East Marion
2 bed, 2 bath
8,712 square foot lot
The only condo on our list, this three-level, two bedroom home has perhaps the most expansive view of the lot, sitting on 13 bayfront acres on the Peconic Bay. Located in the Cleaves Point Condominium Community, it comes with access to the community’s pool, clubhouse, and tennis courts, and more.
