Pound Ridge, N.Y.
Pound Ridge has a rugged beauty owing to its unique topography. Primitive, time-worn stone walls wander through the lushly wooded hills and grassy meadows. Intricate rock outcroppings emanate from the ridges and gentle ravines which accent the landscape. The zoning requires a minimum of three acres per parcel, but many properties are much larger.
While Pound Ridge is known for its beautifully restored antique colonials, it also contains many newer homes constructed by top architects and builders. Additionally, many contemporary style homes are located within Pound Ridge. Hand-hewn stone fireplaces, high ceilings and large windows looking into private, secluded woods can be found in many of these homes.
The Pound Ridge reservation contains 4,700 acres of protected land which is open for hiking, horseback riding and cross country skiing. It even has a large sledding hill for the winter months. Within Pound Ridge, the village of Scott’s Corners provides complete shopping. With a New England character, Scott’s Corners has evolved over the years to include a variety of stores as well as specialty shops and restaurants.
