Larchmont homes zoned for the Chatsworth Ave Elementary School feature the best of what a Westchester bedroom community has to offer. Homes in this particular school zone cover two distinct neighborhoods.
Homes in the Village of Larchmont:
Homes in the village of Larchmont feature tree-lined streets and pre-war homes packed with Old-World charm and character. They range in style from rambling Victorians with wrap-around porches, graceful colonials and impressive Tudors. Typically, the homes in the village sit on smaller lots, though there is still a feeling of space and privacy. These are mature neighborhoods with old-growth which adds to a sense of privacy.
Convenience is a very big amenity of this part of Larchmont. It is easy to leave the car behind and walk to shops and fine dining. Many leave the car and walk to the train and end up doing their shopping on their way home. Most locations in the village are eaily accessible by foot to Metro-North. Walk Scores range from very walkable to walker’s paradise – which is very unusual for single-family home neighborhoods.
Homes in Larchmont Manor:
As a general rule, Larchmont Manor features bigger more expensive homes on larger lots. The streets are graceful and meandering with the mature growth that characterizes a long-established neighborhood. Located on the other side of Boston Post Rd., the area is slightly less accessible to shopping and dining withou the car. It makes up for it with more spacious homes, some feature water views of the Long Island Sound.
The area boasts the beauty of Manor Park and the Larchmont Yacht Club.

Larchmont Homes – Median Sales Prices:
All data comes from the Hudson Gateway MLS (HGMLS). The chart follows the last 10 years of median sales prices and shows the overall strength of this market. Pre-recession sales prices peaked in 2008 to $1.343 million. In 2009 that number abruptly “corrected” to $907k. The median price at the end of 2016 was $1,425,000.
