Subdivisions continue to sprout in the village. For instance, custom homes at Windwood Oaks on Moriches Road are being built in three phases. The first, with spacious homes priced from $820,000 to the mid-$900,000 range, is almost complete, said Diane Lasak, the development's sales agent, noting two lots are still available.

Encore Lake Grove, a gated community for adults 55 and older located opposite Smith Haven Mall, has 228 luxury town houses priced from the upper-$400,000s to the mid-$600,000s.

Quiet neighborhoods feature ranches, capes, Colonials, Victorians and contemporaries for $320,000 to $800,000-plus, said Carrie Mitchell, broker-owner of Century 21 Cambridge in Lake Grove.
