Larchmont homes typically evoke tree-lined streets and mature neighborhoods. This area does not disappoint on any of these. This neighborhood is strictly residential, but extremely walkable, which is a rare combination. Many of the homes are a mile or less from the train station and parts of the village. Some areas are somewhat further from town – so walkability depends upon you precise location. But leaving the car behind is indeed an option for the majority of residents. Because this is a long established neighborhood, Larchmont homes generally have a distinctive Old -World charm about them. Tudors seem to dominate the area although Colonials are very much in evidence as well. But don’t let the age of these homes fool you. Most of them have aged gracefully and boast many upgrades that can give you the best of both worlds. The lot sizes run the gamut from roughly 0.12 acres to over an acre in larger homes. In general, the homes close in to the village sit on smaller lots.
It should be noted at the outset that this area is not truly part of the village of Larchmont, but is rather part of the incorporated portion of the town of Mamaroneck. The elementary school serving the are is the Murray Ave Elementary School. It received a rating of 10 out of 10 from GreatSchools.org and is a true “neighborhood” school.

Like the Larchmont Village proper, the Larchmont PO market is extremely robust. After a deep dive in 2009, this market quickly recovered and has well surpassed pre-recession highs. There was a dip in median sales price in 2016, but volume was extremely strong which indicates that the market remains in good health.
