The Highlands of Aquebogue

The hamlet of Aquebogue, settled in 1758, is named for the Indian word meaning “cove place” or “head of the bay.” Rich in history, with picturesque landscapes and charming surroundings, it is a hidden gem on the East End of Long Island. The North Fork’s impressive wine country offers particular beauty, and Aquebogue itself is home to the renowned Paumanouk Vineyards, one of Long Island’s superior family-owned and operated wineries. Local farms provide fresh produce and baked goods as well as a great place to take the kids for apple and pumpkin picking every fall.

The Highlands at Reeves embodies all that makes Aquebogue a gateway to the best the East End has to offer, a community near local farm stands, lush vineyards, great shopping, antiquing and some of the best restaurants on the North Fork.

The Highlands at Reeves is a wonderful new community, with each new home offering something special in the way of construction and amenities. Westminster Communities has designed and built quality homes for years, developing a reputation for excellence and custom craftsmanship.

Settled amid the natural beauty of the North Fork, the area is growing in popularity. Aquebogue has one of the top-rated school districts on Long Island—in fact, Aquebogue Elementary leads East End schools in test scores.

With its vast amount of land and affordability, the Highlands at Reeves offers people starting out, or perhaps starting over, a place where they can raise a family and invest in a future at the same time—without breaking the bank.
