Mr. New York says goodbye to his beloved Long Island home of over 20 years ago.

In Center Island Village, about 40 miles east of midtown Manhattan, Billy Joel’s 26-acre estate has just hit the market for $49 million, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Sources tell The Post that Joel has been renovating the condo — on Long Island’s main North Shore — for the past few years with the intention of selling.

Piano Man bought the spread in 2002 for $22.5 million, according to records.

Initially, the Grammy winner purchased only 14 acres, and later purchased several adjoining plots of land.

Known as Middlesea, the estate is located near Joel’s hometown of Hicksville, a small village also in the town of Oyster Bay.

Billed as an “Extraordinary, One-of-a-Kind Waterfront Estate,” the home boasts 2,000 feet of waterfront footage.

The main house includes over 20,000 square feet, and consists of five bedrooms and eight bathrooms. It is currently under renovation with a lift serving all floors, as the listing notes.

Furthermore, there is a three-bedroom guest apartment, a bowling alley, and an indoor pool.

Bonnie Williamson of Danielle Gale Sotheby’s International Realty maintains the list.

Meanwhile, Joel, 74, will be spending most of his time in Florida.

In 2015, he shelled out $22 million for a house in Manalapan, which is also for sale – for $64.9 million.

Joel’s Florida home occupies over 13,300 square feet.
The house has nine bedrooms and 11 bathrooms.

Joel first listed his Florida home, South Palm Beach, in 2018 for $31.9 million. It then reappears on the market in November 2022. Joel is expected to look at properties elsewhere in the area.

Christian J. Angel of Christian Angel Properties owns that listing.

In the Hamptons, Joel also still maintains his residence in Sag Harbor, which has also undergone extensive renovations in the past few years.

In 2018, after two and a half years of back and forth, the Sag Harbor Historic Preservation and Architectural Review Board finally approved Joel’s plans to significantly renovate the multi-building.
