The housing market and rental accommodations are based on mostly medium and large houses, as well as studio apartments for rent.These are more expensive than roughly 40 percent of homes for rent in the rest of New York state -- so yeah, it's not cheap. There's a reason, though. These rental houses are usually big. We're talking 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Some of them are even Victorian, or at least Georgian, and they've got some great lawn space, too. If you're looking for a apartment or duplex for rent in Terryville, you can find some of these set up within larger houses.
Even the little rental houses with 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom are packed full of character, and pieced together over the course of a century. If you want a quirky home that reflects your personality, chances are pretty good that you'll find it in Terryville. Once you do find that perfect home for yourself, just don't forget the essential paperwork: letters of reference, bank statements, copies of your ID, a credit report, and the check to write out your deposit.
Because it is a small hamlet, there are no distinct neighborhoods in Terryville. If you section the community into areas that represent the north, south, east and west, however, you will find the Laurel Ridge Setauket Woods Nature Preserve to the west; the elementary and high schools to the east; Cedar Hill Cemetery to the north; and Brookwood Village Apartments at the far south end.
Terryville is a speck on the map, and you know what that means -- you'll need your own car. You'll need it if you want to commute to a nearby town for work, or if you just want to spend the odd weekend in the city. As far as shopping goes, there are some game shops and pharmacies (exciting!) directly in Terryville, but there are some more interesting places to visit a little to the northeast, toward Port Jefferson Station.
Here you will find the Expressions in Dance School, the Outback Steakhouse, the Road Trip American Ale House and PJ Cinemas. A little further down the Nesconset Port Jefferson Highway, you'll find an in-line skating rink and the Ten Ten Bistro, where you can sit down and enjoy some local sushi.
And let's not forget the nature reserve! Bring a picnic, ride your bike along the trails, breathe in some fresh air and thoroughly enjoy spending some time in the great outdoors. This is one of the big perks of living the rural life in Terryville. Are you digging the "off-the-grid" lifestyle?
