Affectionately called “The Quiet Hampton,” Quogue stands out from other villages in the East End because of its casual but elegant atmosphere. It’s free from the traffic, crowds, and parties that give towns east of the canal their glitzy reputations, and offer residents the privacy they need.
At 4.2 square miles, it’s a tight-knit oceanfront community. Some of the families who live here have been around for generations. The population rests at around 1,000 though the figures swell to as much as 5,000 during the summer months.
In spite of its unassuming character, Quogue is self-sufficient – the village has its own school, volunteer fire department, police department, and public library. Social activities often revolve around cultural pursuits at the wildlife center, historical society, and the local theater.

Hamptons New Construction
Quogue looks much like it did a hundred years ago – the village itself is listed on New York State Register of Historic Places. Charming shingled homes and Victorian mansions line the streets, a stark contrast to the teardowns that dominate the housing market elsewhere in the Hamptons.
Though it has retained much of its small-town character, its housing stock is quite diverse. There’s a good balance between older homes and new construction homes. Some of the residences in the area exemplify the kind of modern architecture that the village is known for.
Buyers can choose from the single-family homes and condos. They can also purchase vacant lots.
Quogue’s luxury homes can have as many as 8 to 11 bedrooms, along with heated pools, outdoor spaces, and professional-grade kitchens.
The village’s waterfront properties are some of the most sought after in the Hamptons. They include cozy beach cottages and contemporary estates with panoramic views of the ocean along with other options.
Quogue Real Estate
Located in the southern part of Southampton, Quogue boasts accessibility as one of its biggest draws. For vacationers, a home in Quogue is just a little over an hour-and-a-half’s drive from Manhattan. For those seeking a permanent address, the village is a quiet place to settle in without being too far from the city.
Indeed, Quogue has become a favorite among homebuyers, along with the rest of Greater Westhampton. Although the villages east of the canal have been traditionally viewed as more prestigious, buyers have been turning their attention to Quogue and its neighboring towns over the last few years.
The village is also home to the 300-acre Quogue Wildlife Refuge, where injured owls, eagles, foxes, and other animals native to New York are looked after. The refuge also offers seven miles of sun-dappled nature trails that wend their way through forests with rare dwarf pines and views of tranquil ponds.
Quogue’s Village Beach lies at the barrier island’s east end, is exclusive to residents; tourists are required to purchase seasonal beach permits for a hefty sum. This keeps the local beach fairly empty and quiet.
The Community Village Hall is another highlight. The Quogue Junior Theater Troupe and the Hampton Theatre Company stage world-standard performances here.
There’s also a number of beach clubs that provide social and recreational opportunities to members and residents.
