A plot of land on N. Country Road, starting at $5,000, will be one of a few parcels in the area up for bid next month at a public auction.
The Suffolk County Division of Real Property Acquisition and Management will hold an auction on 130 county-owned parcels on Oct. 23 at the H. Lee Dennisson Building in Hauppauge. Nearly two dozen residential improved properties as well as a handful of commercial structures will be auctioned off.
Ninety-minute open houses will be held at select locations which have been improved beforehand, though the four parcels up for bid from Mt. Sinai to Shoreham are unimproved, according to the county.

Located on the south side of N. Country Road in Miller Place, slightly east of Mt. Sinai Harbor, the highest-valued property up for auction in the area will start bids at $5,000. Bids will increase in $200 increments up until $9,999, at which point bids will increase by $500.
The other three parcels all start bids at $100 or lower - one 2,500-square foot plot abutting Miller Place High School starts as low as $25.
The remaining two plots in the area include two landlocked triangular parcels, one in Shoreham and another in Mt. Sinai.
Bids on the Shoreham property - located near Harvard Road and N. Country Road and measuring 90-feet, by 90-feet, by 91 feet - start at $50. The Mt. Sinai plot - off Crystal Brook Hollow Road - starts at $100.
