Lewisboro NY Real Estate and Homes for Sale
In Westchester County, you can combine your city connection with a peaceful country lifestyle. The unique community of Lewisboro offers a complete change of scene from NYC, with a wealth of open space for recreation as well as wonderful homes and an excellent school system.
Lewisboro was originally named Salem, and the town was established in 1747. Six hamlets make up the town of Lewisboro: Golden’s Bridge, Cross River, South Salem, Vista, Wacabuc, and Lewisboro. Each of these areas has a small town center, but most of the shopping is centered in Golden’s Bridge and Cross River. With a population just over 12,000, this is definitely small-town living, but within easy commuting distance of the city.
Living in Lewisboro
It’s not exactly rural, but not really a suburb, either. Lewisboro sort of defies categories. Just 50 miles north of New York City, the community’s setting is decidedly in the countryside, thanks in large part to careful development.
While construction has been very active in recent years, developers here are required to allocate part of their property as open space, and in most areas, lot sizes range from 2 to 4 acres. When you add to that the public green spaces in Lewisboro, which add up to well over 5,000 acres, you arrive at a community that is comfortably incorporated into the countryside. This amount of open space is very agreeable to the many horse enthusiasts that call Lewisboro home. Horse trails wind throughout the area, and include miles of trails in Westchester County’s largest park, Ward Pound Ridge Preserve, which lies on the south side of Lewisboro.
Lewisboro Real Estate
There are 7 lakes in town, and these make scenic spots for a home. A charming lakeside cottage is one option; there’s also a nice selection of condominiums ranging from 1 to 3 bedrooms, and an amazing collection of beautiful single-family homes, with a median price that’s still less than seven figures.
Lewisboro is growing, thanks in part to its excellent school district, which attracts young families. The district’s 5 schools offer an extensive arts program in addition to its challenging academic curriculum. Newsweek has ranked the area high school, John Jay, in the top 200 high schools in the nation.
