BRONXVILLE, N.Y. – If you're shopping for a home in Bronxville, Mary Cassidy, an associate broker with Bronxville-Ley Real Estate, suggests you look at 16 Park Avenue, a large colonial in the heart of the highly desirable historic Hilltop district of Bronxville. "It's at the end of the yellow brick road," she said, referring to the yellow cobblestone road that leads to the hilltop.
"This home is in walking distance to town, the train and the schools," Cassidy said. It's also in a very active neighborhood association that organizes frequent get-togethers, she added.
Built in 1908, the six-bedroom house has the high ceilings typical of that period. A recent renovation kept the historic character intact while updating the kitchen and bathrooms. The home is listed at $2.985 million.
If you enjoy spending time in the garden, 23 Homesdale Road might be right for you. "This house is on almost half an acre, which is larger than normal for Bronxville," Cassidy said.
Designed by architect George Root, the English Tudor-style home has a classic center hall colonial first floor layout. A large family room is right next to the modern kitchen. A large patio, accessed from the family room, opens onto a level back yard. There are five bedrooms, all on the second floor. The asking price is $2.545 million.
Mary Cassidy, a Bronxville resident for more than 32 years, has been in the real estate business since 1989, and with Bronxville-Ley Real Estate since 1994. She was recently appointed co-chair of professional standards for the Hudson Gateway Association of Realtors (HGAR), a four-county Realtor association that was formed by the merger of the Westchester Putnam Association of Realtors with the Rockland County Board of Realtors and the Orange County Association of Realtors to create the Hudson Gateway Association of Realtors. The new entity represents 9,400 Realtors.
