Rye Brook Real Estate

Picture of Rye Brook

Just north of Port Chester and east of White Plains along the Connecticut border, Rye Brook, NY, is a tiny village within the town of Rye. With a population of about 10,000 people over three-and-a-half miles, Rye Brook is the epitome of a safe, quiet suburban community, with tidy homes and neatly-trimmed lawns on tree-lined streets. Like many Westchester County towns and villages, Rye Brook is a sought-after community for families, and a great deal of community life is focused on children. Rye Brook schools are among the county's best, and the town offers amenities and activities geared toward kids and families in all seasons. Rye Brook is a tightly-knit community—neighbors having a chat by the fence and teens shooting hoops in the driveway are common sights.

Rye Brook was developed in the 1950s with housing mostly consisting of single-family homes, some in exclusive communities that are well-maintained split-levels and colonials on quiet streets as well as townhomes and multi-family homes. Though Rye Brook is an affluent community, homes here are generally less expensive than those in neighboring villages within the town of Rye.

Though there is no real downtown center, several small strip malls give residents the opportunity to meet up with friends and enjoy some shopping. Nearby Port Chester is home to a growing food and restaurant scene, and White Plains and Greenwich, Connecticut are just a short drive away for plenty of shopping, dining and entertainment options.

Rye Brook contains almost 100 acres of park land, including the 35-acre Crawford Park offering ball fields, tennis courts, a playground, and Crawford Mansion, an historic mansion often used for weddings and parties. In addition to a number of private country clubs, Rye Brook is home to the Doral Arrowwood Resort, with several restaurants—including a casual pub, an outdoor cafe and an upscale restaurant—and a nine-hole golf course, all of which are open to the public.

Rye Brook does not have its own stop on the Metro-North line—the closest railroad stations are located in Port Chester and Rye. The Hutchinson River Parkway, the Merritt Parkway or I-287 are easily accessible from many parts of the village. The Westchester County Airport is located in the northern part of Rye Brook.

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.
