Whether you’re looking for a change from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan, or just need a smarter way to make that hustle, Lower Westchester has quickly become the town of choice for those looking for peaceful suburban living. Here at Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty, we provide the bridge to your home of choice.
Thirty miles north of New York City, the Lower Westchester area encompasses several towns, including Rye, Larchmont, New Rochelle, Scarsdale, Mount Vernon, and Pelham Manor. Surrounded by the Hudson River and Long Island Sound, it’s the juxtaposition of beauty and practicality of Lower Westchester that appeals to the most discerning of buyer.
After all, with its strong public schools, thriving community spirit, and short commuting distance to the city, Lower Westchester certainly has a lot to offer for the busy family. While retaining the strong sense of family spirit, the region offers plenty to do. The city of Rye has a distinct downtown area for shopping and eating, while Orchard Beach and Glen Island Beach are perfect for those summer day getaways.
And, with the many styles of homes available, even the most selective buyer can find something to please his or her palate. With home style offerings ranging from Old World Colonial to Modern, the agents here at Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty can help you find the home of your dreams.
We know that many buyers coming to the area may be seeking an older, antique home. How can one resist their charm? With their period detail such as stained glass windows and carved mantels, the aesthetic appeal is certainly a motive to buy. However, many buyers we’ve worked with have found that some of the disadvantages of older homes, such as outdated appliances and obsolete water and drainage systems, can outweigh the benefits.
Most buyers we see end up with newer construction homes for purely practical reasons. From maximizing space and light to special builder warranties accompanying the home purchase, owning a newer construction home is fast becoming the trend here in Lower Westchester.
