Hudson Harbor – Tarrytown NY

Hudson  Harbor – Tarrytown NY

Hudson Harbor  is located right on the Hudson River against a major portion of the Westchester’s Hudson River Walk, a trail  which will ultimately  extend the length of the county along the Hudson River once completed.  This development is a combination of luxury townhomes as well as condominium flats. Interspersed between the town homes will sit a complete community including shops and dining – creating  complete mini-community on the Hudson River.  Included in this package is a complete fitness center, a large out door pool both for residents only as well as guest houses for residents who have visitors.

Hudson Harbor – Tarrytown  is part and parcel of a massive effort to reclaim the riverside for residential and community use .  Public monies including a complete renovation of the train station have been committed and the end result will be a wonderful walkable community on the river – Just steps from Metro-North.

No matter where you look there are spectacular views – Looking south there is the Tappan Zee Bridge and the Manahattan skyline and looking north there is the Kingsland Point and the lighthouse as well as spectacular sunsets on the Hudson River.

Phase I of Hudson Harbor

Phase I has sold out.  Units will be available as resales come onto the marketplace.   To that end there are two units on the market as of this writing  (9/12).    One is a 3 BR  townhouse and the other is a condo from the Stonehouse.

The Townhouses from this phase that resemble New York City brownstones, but also somehow remind me a great deal of Georgetown in Washington DC.  The size of these homes ran from roughly 3300 – 4500 sf and sold in a wide price range between $1 million to $2,500,000.  The difference in pricing was a function of both square footage and views.  A direct water view commanded a higher price point – something that is a common theme throughout this development.  There is currently one 4000 sf unit for resale in this group of townhouses.


The Stonehouse 
 - Took its theme from the famous Blue Hill restaurant at Stone Barns in nearby Pocantico Hills.   The stonework and woodwork on the facade is very, very impressive and gives the building a striking appearance seldom found modern condominium complexes.   The units in this building sold in price range from $475,000-$1 million and the size of the units ranged from 750-2100 sf.  There is currently one unit for resale at the Stonehouse.

(Note: that the sales recorded come from the town of Greenburgh and the HGMLS.)

 

Phase II of Hudson Harbor – The Lookout I Building

 

Lookout Building - Hudson Harbor - Tarrytown NY

Lookout Building – Hudson Harbor

The Lookout Building (pictured above) though sleek and modern features wonderful stonework that like the Stonehouse gives a bow to nearby  Stone Barns.  The stonework is nothing short of amazing.  Each unit has outdoor space and the building is oriented such that each unit has a slice of a river view.  Full  views of the river have been sold out and these units are priced at a premium.  I have been encouraging buyers to seriously consider the wonderful partial views as the price is far more affordable.  All you have to do is walk a few feet to see spectacular views of the Hudson.

As of this writing (Jan 2013)  this building is all but completely sold out and many buyers are anxiously awaiting the opening of Lookout II to secure the unit of their dreams.   There are two units left for  sale at this time, both with nice partial river views.  One is a 3 BR unit and the other is a 2 BR unit.  Listing prices range from a bit over $1.1 million to $1.35 million.  These are large units from 1800 sf to 2500 sf.  I’ve been in both of these units and they are a far cry from leftovers!  I would encourage anyone looking for a condo with river views to give this serious consideration.

Phase III of Hudson Harbor:

The Carriage Houses:   

Meanwhile – Exciting news!  Ground has broken on Phase III of Hudson Harbor and there is a model open.  The building continues unabated and the vision for the Carriage Houses is coming to life.

The Carriage houses are  a grouping of 27 town homes that take their theme and influence from the rich variety of carriage houses located at historic landmarks throughout the Hudson Valley region.  They range in size from roughly 2200-2700 sf and are being crafted from local materials.  Even though this phase is not directly on the river, the surrounding courtyard provides wonderful landscaping and the river is just steps from your door.  As of this writing, a model is open, but the units are not quite open for sale.  They are smaller than the townhouses from Phase I, but offer wonderful amenities and have a nice warm feel.  Below are two slide shows  from the Carriage houses.

Lookout II:

Lookout II  – will be similar to Lookout I in style and finishes, though the floor plans will be fresh and new.  Once again each unit will boast either full or partial Hudson River views all with outdoor space. 450 This phase has yet to break ground, so stay tuned for more information.  As of January 2013 looks as though this building will open for sales in a couple of months

Current listings and recent sales stats at Hudson Harbor:

As of this writing – (Jan 2013)  there area only 4 listings at Hudson Harbor.  Sales will open at the Carriage Houses soon as well as Lookout II in a couple of months. Both of these complexes are a part of Phase III.  This is what is currently available:

  • Two remaining units from Lookout I
  • A townhouse on resale from Phase I
  • A unit in the Stonehouse for resale from Phase I

Many buyers don’t realize this, but as a general rule most new construction is not officially listed on the MLS.  However, some sales stats are available from 2012  at this time:

  • 2 townhouses from phase I  sold as resales in 2012 with sales prices ranging from  $1,335,000 to $1,800,000.  Both were 3 BR homes slightly more than 3000 sf.  The price differential is directly related to the presence of direct river view for the higher priced unit.  This is consistent with prices at Hudson Harbor across the board.  Anything with direct river views sells for substantially more than a home with partial views.
  • There is one recorded sale for Lookout II on the MLS.  A 1600 sf/ 2 BR unit sold for $925,000.

The Commute to Manhattan:

The Tarrytown to Manhattan commute is 38 minutes by express train on the scenic Metro-North Hudson Line.   Tarrytown is a major stop along the Hudson Line and and express stop – so the community is well serviced.  Although the Tarrytown to NYC commute is  a short one  you can easily find yourself a world away with some of the finest walking trails, historic landmarks Westchester has to offer.  Yet you are still within walking distend of  and high-end shopping and dining.

The Commute by Car:

Tarrytown has convenient access to most of the major throughways  of Westchester County.
Access to Rockland County and New Jersey is just across the Tappan Zee Bridge on I-87 north.  I-87 south provides easy access to Manhattan.  The Saw Mill River Parkway and Sprain provide easy access to points north and south in Westchester Putnam, Duchess and the Bronx.  The Saw Mill provides access centers such as  Danbury CT, due east and the proximity to I-287 is key to an easy commute to other points of the county that are due east.  White Plains NY is just about 15 minutes away.  For a map of Westchester Parkways and Interstates – click here.
