New Rochelle has a beautiful historic district that was commonly known as the “Gold Coast’ back in the turn of the century. It was close to the city, and way back then, you could buy a home from anywhere from $3-5000! But what gorgeous homes! Victorian homes, Antebellum Mansions, Colonials, Tudor homes and all with such rich architectural detailing not found in today’s homes.
One home, built later in 1938 but located in Rochelle Park, was originally built with a barrel roof, a huge fireplace, and the original kitchen was on a lower floor which accessed a private courtyard, with the two bedrooms, living room on the first floor. The living room was HUGE with a dramatic high ceiling and unique chandelier. The owners decided to totally renovate the home back in 2014, and enlarged the home to feature 4 bedrooms, a kitchen with granite counters (now located on the first floor), 3 full bathrooms, new roof, beautiful hardwood floors throughout the first floor, and a deck overlooking the courtyard along with a charming pergola with a bench that is nestled amidst lush flowers and plantings. The property boasts 0.47 of an acre too!
With the new increased New York City Mansion tax, and Transfer tax, it just makes sense to purchase a home in Westchester that doesn’t require those taxes!
