The Villages at West Neck broke ground in 2000 for the first of the eight villages almost 25 years ago. The eight villages were completed by 2016, with a total of 930 residences and a current population of over 1600 residents. A creative touch in the Master Plan was woven into the naming of the villages with allusions to the greats of literature, science and social justice. Granite markers greet the entrance to each village with a quotation which has significance to the village name. The Villages at West Neck is an established, well-maintained community which has grown and prospered!
Two of the eight villages are easy living condominium communities with over 400 units. These one-floor units boast attached garages, private balconies, porch areas, and generous floor plans. Not to be missed are the private elevators to the second-floor units!
Six of the eight villages are well-maintained, traditional single family home communities with a combined total of over 525 homes. These beautiful homes, while varying in design, all have first-floor primary suites, low-maintenance exteriors, and attached garages. There are open floor plans, vaulted ceilings, copious natural light and sweet outdoor areas for entertaining!

Browningstone Village is the first village you see after turning onto Legendary Drive upon entering West Neck. Browningstone consists of 108 condominium units in eighteen buildings. There are only two streets, Browning Drive and Sonnet Drive. Eleven of the buildings wind alongside the lakes and former golf course. The majority of the other buildings back up to a wooded area. The builder thoughtfully angled the buildings as to afford the most privacy possible to all units.
Browningstone has a very active social committee which plans a wide variety of events for residents throughout the year. There are also impromptu driveway get-togethers hosted by several owners. One of the Browningstone residents is a professional flutist who, in addition to performing for all West Neck residents, will entertain condo residents in one of the two park areas in Browningstone: Sonnet Park or Browningstone Park.
