With Sound Shore access, Rye is known for its coveted school systems and its dynamic downtown full of restaurants and shops, so it’s no surprise that the homes there regularly sell for prices in the multimillions. An affordable listing by most standards is a rarity, but anything under the median price counts as a good deal for Rye homebuyer wannabes.
4 BR, 3.1 BA; 2,345 sq. ft.; 0.2 acres; $26,082 estimated taxes
This darling Hix Park home invites the outside in, with oversized windows and vaulted ceilings that provide an abundance of natural light. An eat-in kitchen, living room with two separate seating areas, and home office space add to the bright four-bedroom home. Hardwood floors, two fireplaces, and built-ins are among the property’s highlights. One of only two homes on the street, this Rye gem features a patio and deck for a private oasis.
The exterior could use a refresh and some window treatments could be updated.
