Shelter Island Heights is being recognized again in the world of real estate as one of the priciest places in America to purchase a house.

In October, Time magazine listed the Heights in the top 10 — it ranked number 10 — of the most expensive ZIP codes in America, listing the average house price as $2.97 million and with an average household income of $140,380.

Now, PropertyShark — a New York city based website dispensing real estate information — has the Heights in its 50 most expensive ZIP codes in the U.S., coming in 36th with a median sale price for a house at $ 1.9 million.

That puts the Heights just ahead of San Francisco and trailing Medina, Washington, a town near Seattle.

Topping PropertyShark’s list was the South Fork’s Sagaponack, where the median price is $5.5 million to settle down.
