New Yorkers old and new have upheld a long tradition – owning a country home that one can get away to on weekends and for weeks during the summertime. There is nothing like taking a break from work, connecting with your family and to nature, and just slowing down to enjoy what life has to offer. For many, the most attractive NYC weekend homes are situated in Westchester County – a region less than an hour drive from midtown, but feels worlds away from hectic city life.
Those seeking a rustic escape can find it in towns ranging from Pound Ridge to South Salem and Waccabuc to North Castle. Some towns will feel incredibly pastoral, while others like Mount Kisco feature many of your favorite stores and restaurants. The Northern Westchester real estate market is especially popular with everyone from families to celebrities.
