At just a hair over $600,000, this three-bedroom on a quiet cul-de-sac balances suburban living with an easy commute in Westchester.
As much as we love our glitzy and glamorous county estates, there’s nothing quite as romantic as a cute and cozy cape house during an evening rainstorm. That’s why when this Northeast Yonkers property hit the market — right as we were releasing out list of the Most Affordable Places to Live in Westchester — well, it was love at first sight.
Asking Price: $612,000; Est. Annual Taxes: $9,980
Located on a 0.13-acre plot with nice, flat front and backyards in Yonkers’ Westchester Hills neighborhood, this quaint little 1950 cape-style house manages to still sport three bedrooms, with plenty of closet space, two baths, a den/office or additional bedroom, eat-in kitchen, finished basement space, and additional storage.
Outside, the property includes a beautiful lawn and patio covered by a gorgeous pergola, ideal for summers in the sun. There’s even a dog run for Fido. The property is an easy bike ride to the local Pre-K–8 school, and a short drive to Sprain Lake Golf Course.
Selling Points: Highly affordable with low property taxes; convenient location in a quiet neighborhood; Cape Cod charm
