Year-round Living and Home to the 'Big Duck'

Flanders

Five miles east of the Shinnecock Canal on Route 24, the Big Duck is a beloved East End landmark, signaling to children and adult weekenders alike that their journey from the city is nearing its end. The 20-foot duck is a vestige from the 1930s when Flanders was known as a hub for waterfowl hunting and had an active summer season. Now, a year-round community thrives here.

What to Expect

Flanders a popular community for year-rounders

Located on the south side of the Peconic River, Flanders is part of the Town of Southampton. It's more often associated with Riverhead, however, because the two towns share a school district. Just a stone's throw from Riverhead's popular outlet malls, Flanders offers a wealth of options for bargain hunters. The town is also close to Hampton Bays for those who prefer to support local shops. Mostly residential, Flanders has small neighborhoods, many on the bay, and was once home to summer hotels and boarding houses.

Small simple ranches giving way to pricier developments

Flanders is home to a year-round community of residents who tend to occupy beach bungalows and small ranches on postage stamp-sized lots. Despite the large local community, larger homes on bigger, gated parcels are popping up as Flanders is redeveloped. Properties start around $250,000 with newer, waterfront homes going for closer to $1 million.
