Sands-Willets Homestead is a historic home located at Port Washington in Nassau County, New York. It is a 20-room, shingled 2-story building with an enlarged porch and porte cochere. The west wing dates to about 1735 and was originally a four-bay, 1 12-story house with end chimneys over a full basement. The main portion of the house is a Greek Revival–style dwelling built during the first half of the 19th century. Also on the property is a contributing barn dated to the late 17th century and garden. The barn was moved to the property in 1978.[2] It is operated as a historic house museum by the Cow Neck Peninsula Historical Society, which also offers tours of the Thomas Dodge Homestead.

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.[1]
