The former Dix Hills Golf Club property on Half Hollow Road in Dix Hills will be the future site of luxury homes priced in the millions, Newsday reported Thursday.
Continental Pinewood purchased the site in June and plans to develop more than 20 homes on one-acre lots, as well as necessary infrastructure and improvements, according to Newsday. The surrounding area is largely residential.
Dix Hills Golf Club, a nine-hole course with an old-time feel, closed in 2011 or 2012. Since then the quaint clubhouse and gravel driveway off Half Hollow Road were overtaken by weeds (pictured). Less than two miles away, the municipal Dix Hills Park Golf Course remains open.
More from Newsday about the infrastructure:
The Huntington Town board on July 15 approved an agreement with H2M Architects Engineers to provide engineering services for the installation of 3,000 linear feet of new water main along with the appropriate valves and fire hydrants. In June, the town's planning department sent a letter to the developer advising it that it had to post two performance bonds for the project -- a general construction bond for $1,077,904.80, less $31,109, and a drainage bond for $1,032,791.
"The next step is for the developer to complete the required infrastructure improvements and to obtain building permits for the houses," town spokesman A.J. Carter said.
Gol said the improvements include such things as roads, curbs, a new entry, landscaping, trees, traffic signs and utility lines. -- Deborah S. Morris, Newsday, 7/24/2014
