It is possible to find cute houses under a half million dollars in a good school district in Westchester. And not just up north either. Take a look at these three possibles.
120 Old Army Road, Scarsdale
It needs work, but for its $500,000 price tag, it may be worth taking on. Located in the Edgemont school district and a walk to the Scarsdale train station, the 2,000-square-foot, 4 bedroom house is full of charm. Best of all, taxes are $12,000. Big con: The yard, while it has potential, needs help!
27 Keats Avenue, Hartsdale
This 1938 4 bedroom charmer is in sought-after Poet’s Corner. While the house is small, its bonus room and large master bedroom is a great starter home.
303 South Lexington Avenue, White Plains
This six bedroom home is priced low because it needs work, but it has a great location, on the border with the highly-sought after Highlands neighborhood. But the front porch is beautiful — and so are the historic details.
