When Westchester NY home buyers start thinking about high end cooperatives in a walkable neighborhood with easy access to Metro-North – they think almost reflexively of Garth Road in Scarsdale P.O. And with good reason. The train is a mere 5- 10 minute walk as is the village of Scarsdale. You have tree-lined streets, lots of parking (admittedly mostly street parking) and numerous complexes, many of which pre-war charmers with high ceilings and high ceilings and wonderful layouts.
But just a little to the east you have virtually the same thing in Larchmont NY – though this area remains a bit under most buyers radar. Nevertheless there are a cluster of wonderful cooperatives and condos located on North Chatsworth Ave., Washington Square and New Jefferson. The complexes along this one square block are just steps from the train and about 2 blocks from the heart of the village. You can easily leave the car behind for most shopping and fine dining. NYC is 35 minutes away on the New Haven Line. Larchmont is also an express stop during peak hours which is an added bonus.
Many of the complexes have doorman service. There are several pre-war charmers including the building that Lou Gehrig called home during the first years of his marriage. These buildings sport high-cove ceilings, hard wood floors with details that are not seen in modern buildings. There is also easy access to the Long Island sound and parks such as Harbor Island and Manor Park where
So if you are looking on Garth Road in Scarsdale, consider taking a short drive along Weaver Street to North Chatsworth Ave where I am holding an open house at 21 North Chatsworth on Sunday Aug 7, from 1-4 PM.
