"Beautiful and Budget-Friendly!"

The Town of Lewisboro is in northern Westchester County bordering Connecticut. It is a gorgeous setting with up-and-down roads and many water-view possibilities as it lies near the Croton and Muscoot Reservoirs. The hamlets of Golden’s Bridge, Cross River, South Salem and Waccabuc make up this town. It is close to Interstate 684 and there is the Golden’s Bridge Metro North train station also for public transport options. Golden’s Bridge is over an hour away from Grand Central and maybe easier as a weekend outing rather than a week day commute.

Lewisboro has seven lakes and several beautiful Nature preserves including the largest in Westchester County, the Ward Pound Ridge Reservation. There are many walking paths and hiking trails which draw locals and visitors to the park lands of Lewisboro.
Lewisboro offers some shopping and dining options but it is also close enough to Katonah and Danbury, CT, to get the benefit of the eclectic shopping mix of those communities. Lewisboro does not have a downtown area but there are shops for necessities such as the A&P for groceries. Unfortunately the D’agastino in town closed in 2011 and it is rumored that a Diccico’s Market will be opening soon in Cross River.

If the beauty and convenience of Lewisboro attract many people, the clincher for them is the reputation of the Lewisboro-Katonah School District. John Jay High School, the only high school in the public school system here, is ranked in the top 200 high schools in the country!

Lewisboro offers this wonderful lifestyle at more affordable prices than some other down county communities. Its slight distance from Manhattan can work to the advantage of folks who are not looking to commute into the city every day. Here is the possibility of the best of Westchester living within more nominal budgets also.
Pros
  • Lovely location
  • Great schools
  • Caters to country-lovers
Cons
  • Can feel remote
  • not enough night life in some areas
Recommended for
  • Country Lovers
