Highlands model homes offer ‘fewer walls, more light’


In late April, developer Steven Dubb closed on a deal to purchase the 14 remaining lots at the 42-acre Highlands Club at Aquebogue on Sound Avenue.

Now, after reconfiguring and meticulously staging the site’s two model homes, the rest of the lots are ready to be sold.

“We’ve been looking at [the North Fork] for a number of years and have just been waiting for the right opportunity to come along,” said Mr. Dubb, 28, a principal of The Beechwood Organization in Jericho. His father, Michael, founded the company in 1980.

“[The North Fork] isn’t a market we’ve built in before,” the Amagansett resident said, “but it was attractive to us because it’s really, really beautiful.”


The 14 properties, located next door to Long Island National Golf Club, are priced from $499,900 to $589,900 and boast between 2,300 and 3,000 square feet of living space. They feature ground-floor master suites with tray ceilings, hardwood floors, spacious family rooms with 22-foot ceilings and two-car garages. High-end finishes like quartz kitchen counter tops and 42-inch cabinets come standard with each one or two-story house. Two-story designs include an inviting window seat. On-site shared amenities include a clubhouse and fitness center, an outdoor pool and a tennis court.
