Inviting Eastchester: Idyllically Historical

Inviting Eastchester: Idyllically Historical

May 5, 2022

Eastchester, New York is located in Westcester county and tucked within it are two villages, Bronxville and Tuckahoe. Established in 1664, it was a Puritan community and home to famous reformer preacher Anne Hutchinson to whom a State House monument was erected in memory.

The area was neutral during the Revolutionary War with no major battles within its territories but was fought over nearly constantly for 13 years. Its railroad was built in the 1840s and led to the rise of urban development. Its rich past remains fascinating for visitors and residents to this day with historical sites open to the public, such as St. Paul’s Church built in the 1700s, the Marble Schoolhouse, and the Thomas Paine Cottage Museum, home to the author of the pamphlet Common Sense.

The median sale price for a listing in Eastchester is $820,000. Current prices show an incredible 18.8% increase over the previous year, and 26 properties were sold last month. The median number of days a home will spend on the market is 101.

94% of residents graduate high school, earning their diploma or equivalent, and 55% have a college degree.
