Ribbon Cutting For Two Workforce Houses In Tuckahoe Woods

Tuckahoe Woods COLLAGE

Members of the Southampton Town Board and the Southampton Business Alliance joined together with the new owners of two units of workforce housing at a ribbon cutting for “Tuckahoe Woods”.   The homes are located at 409 Moses Lane and 296 Magee Street.

Two 3 bedroom, 2 bath homes were built through the generosity of the Southampton Business Alliance Housing Initiative Corporation and were sold for $332,400.00 to the qualified applicants chosen in a Southampton Housing Lottery conducted by the Long Island Housing Partnership. 

The two homes plus 15 units at the Southampton Point will bring 17 units of workforce housing for sale in the Town of Southampton this year.  Soon there will also be 66 workforce rentals available when Speonk and Sandy Hollow are completed later this year.  

“We know there is a tremendous need for more workforce housing and with the help of the Southampton Business Alliance Housing Initiative and the Long Island Housing partnership we hope to help those looking for an affordable home within their communities,” said Southampton Town Supervisor Jay Schneiderman.   

The new owners of one of the homes at Tuckahoe Woods, Stacey DiStefano and James White, Jr. had been renting a home for eight years near Hampton Bays and could not afford to purchase their own home.  To their surprise, they were chosen by the Southampton lottery and just moved in with their two children ages 7 and 2 and-a-half years old.  DiStefano said, “We are truly blessed for this opportunity, we wanted to stay out here near our families, we are very thankful to be given this opportunity to buy this new home.”
