The Village of Larchmont, in the town of Mamaroneck, is home to trendy restaurants, lovely parks, lively entertainment, beach clubs and charming residential communities. A resort community in the 19th century for wealthy individuals living in New York City, Larchmont evolved to become a suburb after the advent of the automobile made daily commuting into the city a reality. Over the years, in addition to being famous for its close proximity to Manhattan, the area has become well known nationally for its school system and quality of life.
“Larchmont and its surrounding communities offer residents a mix of suburban and urban life,” says Jane Murray, Brokerage Manager for our Larchmont brokerage. “There are many parts of the area that are quiet and intimate, and yet, other sections that are energetic and vibrant.”
Let’s take a closer look at why Larchmont and its surrounding communities are so popular among home buyers.
Outdoors enthusiasts and wildlife lovers can connect with nature in a variety of parks, such as Otter Creek Preserve, a three-mile stretch of coastline with a vibrant mix of coastal waters, marshes, wooded wetlands and uplands.
Additionally, the 44-acre Harbor Island Park offers stunning vistas of Long Island Sound and is in walking distance to the train station and Mamaroneck Avenue’s array of shops and restaurants.
While New York City’s nightlife is only 30 minutes away via a direct Metro North train, residents can enjoy a night of fun and excitement right in their own backyard. The Emelin Theater, Westchester County’s oldest continuously operating performing arts theater, offers music, Broadway shows, comedy, dance and film.
