Best Places to Live 2018: Larchmont

Whether you’re looking for waterfront or walkability in a luxury home or village apartment, you’ll find it in this historic Sound Shore community. The wide, tree-lined streets of the village — originally founded as a resort community for well-heeled Manhattanites — continue to preserve its reputation as a haven for some of Westchester’s wealthiest residents. Earlier this year, Bloomberg ranked the village as the 24th-wealthiest place to live in the US and fourth-wealthiest in New York State.

“It’s one of the few areas where even from the high-end homes, you can walk into the village — and walk to the train,” says Chirag Shah of LifeNY in White Plains, VP of the Hudson Gateway MLS. Entry-level prices for some of the condos and apartments in town start around $150,000 for a one-bedroom unit. Single-family homes start around $700,000, and the median sales price for Larchmont properties is approximately $1,320,000.

According to Debbie Doern, a brokerage manager of the Houlihan Lawrence Larchmont office, there’s a lot to like for the money. “We have a short, easy commute to Grand Central, beautiful waterfront parks, a public beach for village residents, and walkability to great shops and restaurants,” she notes.
