Developers have unveiled two new models at a new 55-and-over residential community that straddles the border between Nassau and Suffolk counties.

Currently under construction, the gated community called Kensington Estates will have 80 townhouses on the 18.6-acre site at the intersection of Jericho Turnpike and Plainview Road, which touches both Huntington and Woodbury. However, the official address of the property is 496 Jericho Turnpike in Woodbury.

Pre-construction sales began in Feb. 2019 and the first residences are expected to be ready for occupancy before the end of the year, according to a statement from Queens-based developer Triangle Equities. The company declined to say how many of the homes have been sold so far.

Amenities at Kensington Estate will include a clubhouse with a fitness center, yoga studio, lounge, billiard room and event lounge, an outdoor pool and veranda, tennis court, and a pond.

The new models were designed by Huntington-based interior designer Kate Singer. The development offers single-level coach and carriage-style homes and two-story townhomes, all with master bedrooms on the main level, and one- or two-car garages. Homes feature Subzero and Wolf kitchen appliances, stone islands, great rooms with marble fireplaces, Carrera-tiled bathrooms, hardwood floors and private patios.

Prices of the condos start at $1.425 million.

“We are thrilled for the response that both the Kensington Estates community and our models have received,” Lester Petracca, president of Triangle Equities, said in the statement. “The land plan is really evident at this point in construction and, as we prepare for first closings, we’re excited to share the progress with our early purchasers and new prospects alike.”

Approvals for the development, first pitched more than 10 years ago, were challenging to secure, since most of the site is in Huntington, but 5.1 acres are in Woodbury. That meant the developers had to seek the OK for its plan from both Nassau and Suffolk counties, the towns of Huntington and Oyster Bay, and the South Huntington and Syosset school districts.
