CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. -- The diversity of homes found in Chappaqua is part of the reason more homeowners are flocking towards the historic town. Brian Murray and his team at Houlihan Lawrence Real Estate, are a top-selling team in Chappaqua and provide a wealth of information for those curious about life in this region.
"The diversity of architecture in Chappaqua's luxury market is really exciting for home buyers entering our market," said Murray. "What sets us apart in this market is our regional dominance and global exposure combined with top local agents that know their market.”
Standing out from other Chappaqua listings is 28 Brevoort Road, which is listed for $3,350,000. One of the most historic homes in town, the house was built in 1850 and has been home to prominent Chappaqua families such as former Presidential candidate, Horace Greeley. Nicknamed, Tribune Cottage, based on a rumor that Greeley's mistress resided at the estate, the home features six bedrooms, four bedrooms and over 4,000 sq. ft. of living space.
"Tribune Cottage has been involved with Chappaqua and Westchester's history for over 150 years," said Murray. "This home offers a setting and property that could be expected in our market further north but a true rarity this close to New York City.”
For those seeking a more modern home, 866 Hardscrabble Road, built in 2011, offers spacious and inviting living. The home features over 6,000 sq. ft. of living space, five bedrooms, marble countertops and plenty of updated amenities. Listed at $2,250,000, Hardscrabble Road is close to downtown Chappaqua and the railroad.
"The diversity in Chappaqua's high-end homes vary from price, style, age and many other factors," said Murray. "Each house offers something unique to the homeowner."
275 Bedford Road offers a style not often found in Chappaqua or even Westchester. Listed for $4,275,000, 275 Bedford offers seven bedrooms, five bathrooms and 12,000 sq. ft. of living space.
"One of the special things this home offers even beyond its history, is its retreat-like setting with a pool and tennis court," said Murray. "Over the years, we have seen it become increasingly harder and harder to have both a pool and a court. At 275 Bedford, you don’t have to worry, It’s all here”
While every high-end home in Chappaqua offers its own, unique characteristics, they all reside in the tight-knit community. "What all these homes are fortunate to have in common are being located in Chappaqua," said Murray. “Luxury buyers are seeing value in our market and falling in love along the way.”
