Pleasantville Real Estate

Picture of Pleasantville

The village of Pleasantville, NY, in the town of Mount Pleasant, is perfectly situated in the center of Westchester County. One of Westchester’s oldest communities, this ideal location affords residents convenient access to nearby parks, restaurants, and shopping. The family-friendly village is easily accessible to both Northern and Southern Westchester via a number of highways and main roads. Just 30 miles from the heart of Manhattan–an easy commute for those who work in the city or just love to visit. As with most of Westchester County, you'll find some of the best schools in the nation here. Pleasantville is also home to a campus of Pace University. There are two major medical facilities in Mount Pleasant, the Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla and Phelps Hospital in Sleepy Hollow. The New York Medical College is located at the Westchester Medical Center.

Large enough to offer important services to its residents, and just small enough to be quaint and neighborly, Pleasantville also prides itself on its reputation as a cultural and artistic center. This reputation got a boost in 2001 with the opening of the nonprofit Jacob Burns Film Center in the landmark Rome Theater. Another addition to the cultural scene is the Pleasantville Music Festival, held in July. The Frank Lloyd Wright-designed residential enclave Usonia Homes sits on 100 acres of wooded hillside and includes two houses designed by Wright himself. Architecture students and fans of Wright’s designs consider the development an important collection of some of the 20th century’s finest modern architecture.

The Mount Pleasant Recreation and Parks Department oversees a wide variety of recreation programs and facilities for the arts, sports, aquatics, special events and social activities. A focal point for activities is the Mount Pleasant Community Center and Town Pool Complex. The department is also responsible for the maintenance of 14 town parks.

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 ‘60s 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.
