Mamaroneck Real Estate

Picture of Mamaroneck

With the shoreline of the Long Island Sound as its eastern border, the 3.2 square mile village of Mamaroneck is partially located (along with southern neighbor Larchmont) in the town of Mamaroneck; part of the village is in the town of Rye Brook. The latter portion is informally referred to as Rye Neck. Mamaroneck is popular with professionals who work in Manhattan but love the luxury of waterfront living, and with families seeking the benefits of an excellent school system.

One of the oldest communities in Westchester County, Mamaroneck contains several neighborhoods. The more expensive enclaves of Shore Acres, Heathcote Hill, Orienta and Harbor Lawn overlooking the harbor are popular with boaters. Other neighborhoods include Harbor Heights in the northeast, Washingtonville, Old Rye Neck and Rye Neck. The latter community is situated in the middle of 53 acres of protected saltwater wetlands, home to birds, fish, and other wildlife, yet just steps away from Boston Post Road. Homes in Mamaroneck are mostly single-family, but you'll also find multi-family homes, condominium units and co-op buildings.

The village's main commercial streets are Boston Post Road (U.S. Route 1) and Mamaroneck Avenue. Two points of pride in Mamaroneck are a bustling downtown filled with shops and and restaurants, and a postcard-perfect harbor, a favorite with sunbathers in the summer. Mamaroneck Avenue has become a popular dining and shopping destination and a county success story of sorts. Cafes, restaurants, bakeries, upscale clothing boutiques and book and record stores coexist happily and thrive, appealing to a diverse population. Village-sponsored downtown events—like the early summer Harbor Fest—happen throughout the year. Mamaroneck offers plenty of opportunities to enjoy the water with its marinas, yacht clubs and beaches. A highlight is the 45-acre Harbor Island Park—especially lovely in the spring, when hundreds of cherry trees lining the shorefront park are in full bloom.

The commute from Mamaroneck station to Midtown Manhattan, 23 miles to the south, takes under 40 minutes via Metro-North on the New Haven line. By car, drive time to Midtown on Interstate 95 is about 40 minutes.

With New York City and Long Island Sound to the south, Putnam County on the north and Connecticut to the east, Westchester County holds the distinction of being the world's first large-scale suburb. Major interstate highways constructed during the 1950s and 1960s and the construction of the Tappan Zee Bridge encouraged major corporations to build their headquarters here. A sweet spot for commuters traveling by car or by the Metro-North Commuter Railroad, today's Westchester is one of the nation's most affluent counties and the location of many of New York City's most desirable suburban communities.
