It all started with a road trip

Since 1957

Silver Sands has been a beachfront home on the North Fork for generations of visitors. To build that home, its founders, Florence and Thomas Jurzenia, embarked on a cross-country trip in pursuit of inspiration. When they returned, they drew upon all they had learned to create a unique destination that was both casually stylish and seriously fun. A place where carefully planned design set the stage for carefree leisure.

The Jurzenias envisioned a retreat where human craftsmanship mirrored nature’s beauty, inviting guests to savor North Fork’s landscapes from artistically adorned spaces designed by W. & J. Sloane Fifth Avenue. A living testament to their journey and creativity, Silver Sands remains an eternal sanctuary, embodying art, comfort, and the North Fork’s allure.
