The Greens at Melville New York for the population for over 55years old is an awesome place to call home. The Greens is the place to live if your looking to downsize and also looking for  a very laid back life. If you love playing GOLF just think about playing any time you want to and sharing with others who love the game too. It's not all about Golfing but its all about the manicure lawns and the lake view you get from some of the homes that are on the property.         .

 Northgate is a gated townhouse community situated in Melville Long Island. Northgate was opened in 1982. It’s a 24 hour guard gated community within the top rated Half Hollow Hills School District #5. The Amherst, The Berkeley, and the Columbia are the three floor plans that were built here. Our buyers, Elliot and Geri liked the community very much, but there are no basements at Northgate, like their neighbors down the road at The Villas, so they decided to look elsewhere.   You can reach this Melville Long Island Gated Townhouse | Living At Northgate | Half Hollow Hills School District #5, by The Long Island Expressway Exit 49S and head South on Old Walt Whitman Road. These are all attached condos with 2 and 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths and an attached garage. The bedrooms are on the upper l...
