If you’re considering a move to Northern Westchester, we don’t blame you! “Northern Westchester has so much to offer home buyers that you may not necessarily find farther south,” says Harriet Libov, a licensed real estate agent specializing in Northern Westchester with Houlihan Lawrence. “When I began my search for a NYC suburb to call home, I was immediately attracted to Northern Westchester for its sophisticated country feeling. Being a young mom was just the beginning of my exploration and journey into community life and all it has to offer.”
So what makes the Northern Westchester lifestyle so wonderful for families? Below, Libov shares the top draws of her beloved area…
- Land is available at a more reasonable home price than in lower Westchester. Space for privacy and play is much more abundant up north!
- The commute to New York City is shorter than you think. The Armonk community has a short drive to North White Plains for a 38-minute express train, and Chappaqua has its own station right in town.
- Wonderful parks and recreation facilities abound, plus award-winning schools.
- There’s a sophisticated country lifestyle, with fabulous fine-dining restaurants like Restaurant North, Moderne Barn, Fortina, Campagna, The Farmer and The Fish, and The Inn at Pound Ridge. There are also fabulous local boutiques of all sorts with personal shopping services.
A passion for architecture, renovation and good design is what sparked Libov’s career in real estate 15 years ago. Libov’s interest in design and renovation has transitioned to a talent for staging and preparing homes for sale, to help buyers envision the home they are dreaming about. She loves clients who ask questions and are open to the answers she provides, and her ongoing relationships with clients are her favorite part of the job.
