Welcome to Scarsdale

Named by the lovelorn British expat Caleb Heathcote in 1701, Scarsdale is now home to 18,000 residents and the wealthiest town in Westchester County. You’ll find elite shops and restaurants in the Tudor-style downtown (a nod to those English roots) and massive multi-million-dollar estates farther out.

The market:
An eclectic mix of homes.

Part of the appeal in Scarsdale stems from the wide variety of architectural offerings, from Tudors to Contemporaries to Colonials. Buyers can find quaint lots where they can get to know their neighbors or more secluded homes on 1+ acres of land. Homes with deep historical significance line the same streets as brand new construction, creating a charming melting pot of properties. An impressive school system, proximity to NYC, and a suite of local amenities within a bucolic setting make the Scarsdale market alluring to those who want to get away from it all without having to sacrifice convenience and lifestyle.
