The village of Bronxville, especially the core 20-acre Lawrence Park section created by entrepreneur and developer William Van Duzer Lawrence, is justly famous for its magnificent collection of historic single-family houses.
The array of tree-lined winding streets filled with stately English Tudors, Southern Colonials, Classical Revivals, Craftsmans and Victorians, can be traced directly to Lawrence’s modern vision of suburbia and his gracious style of architectural execution.
But for downsizers and others seeking a gracious home without the hassles of lawn care and home maintenance, there is a steady stock of apartments available for sale. Many are within easy walking distance of trains, schools and downtown shops and restaurants, and some date to the 1920s and ’30s, with grand scale and charming architectural details.
Let’s take a look at four stylish apartments in Bronxville that are now on the market.
