Drive on Long Beach Road and one Nissequogue estate is not like the other, that is, if you can find it.
The estate at 523 Long Beach Road, between Stillwater Road and Short Path, is completely abandoned, a rare sight in an area where massive estates line the bluffs and tax bills can approach six figures. According to the home's listing in Blockshopper, the circa-1971 estate is not listed for sale, though it has been sitting in shambles, with tall grass breaking through the concrete, deadbolts rusting on the front door and light casings shattered.
According to tax information listed on the Town of Smithtown's website, the estate is owned by Eugene Culbreath, and property taxes are $32,000 a year on the estate.
Zillow.com estimates the home's value at $1.5 million.
While this estate is not on the market, homes for sale in the tony village continue to pop up. The Multiple Listing Service of Long Island lists 31 properties for sale in Nisssequoge, including a brand-new villa that just hit the market for $9 million. But a drive thorugh the area shows a host of signs for private sales.
See our gallery of the estate and stay tuned for updates on this property.
