In Nassau, where can you get the biggest house for 500k to 600k? What about 600K to 700K? Please be around 40 minutes to Penn station.

You can get it in a couple of areas, but where do you get the best bang for your buck? Some areas might be great neck, port washington, rockville centre etc.

You can get a massive gorgeous house for that amount of money in one of the more struggling communities of the county. (ex. Roosevelt, Hempstead, New Cassel, Central Freeport)

Do you have any criteria? Does the area matter to you at all?

Smile Biggest house

I think if you concern is the travel time to NYC than I think you should consider Hicksville and surrounding areas. Houses are still moderately priced and come in all different sizes. Down side or upside all depends on your veiw is that it is very busy and the traffic never seems to stop.

Very convient by train to the city and the LIE and Northern State Parkway are easily accesible.

I don't know what you consider a "big" house; also how important is property size?

But if commuting time is an issue, Port Washington might fit your wants and needs.
IMHO as a former long time commuter, it's the best line for commuting - it does not go through Jamaica, which is a hub for all other trains.

I'm just going to assume schools play a factor here since otherwise there'd be too many to name. 40 mins to Penn means nowhere east of Hicksville. And if you want large for 500k, you would not be considering the better school districts. I've always said we'd stay in Hicksville and build a bigger house if it weren't for having the kids (schools aren't that great). But then again, without kids, why would we need a bigger house? At any rate, surrounding towns like Bethpage, Wantagh, or Levittown with colonials may fit your needs for 500k - those are decent SDs. 700k you can easily get a 4br colonial in a better SD town like Syosset/Plainview and they are about 45 mins to Penn. But yes, we need to know how big is big in your mind.

I really don't know of any subterranean houses. People tend to live in houses on Long Island.
