Bargain Hunt: Living in Bronxville on a Budget
This is Westchester, where a home doesn’t have to be “cheap” to be a bargain.
If you’re searching for a home to buy in Bronxville, you’re already planning to drop some serious cash, so this just-over-a-million price tag won’t scare you; in fact, it may seem like a sweet deal.
Bronxville Median Home Price:
$1,687,500 (June 2018)
$1,099,000 ($588,500 below the median home price)
633 California Rd, Bronxville
6 BR, 3.2 BA; 3,812 sq. ft.; .39 acres $30,076 estimated taxes
What You Get:
A spacious 1929 Normandy Tudor with brag-worthy features like gourmet-kitchen appliances, a family room with radiant heat under the tilework, a grand sunken living room, master bedroom with vaulted ceiling, and a separate wing (accessible from the main hall or back stairs), which out-of-town guests will love.
What You’ll Need to Do:
Deal with the fact you’re not getting the cachet of the Bronxville school district (Tuckahoe schools are still well-regarded, however), and break out your inner designer: Most of the rooms have paint colors and finishes that scream 1990s.
