Welcome to Scarsdale
An exclusive and sprawling suburb with first-rate food, shopping, and schools.
Scarsdale has long lured New York City families who want more space without sacrificing convenience and prestige. Some of the state’s most well-known residents–like Liza Minnelli, Yoko Ono, and Rob Reiner—grew up here.
Named by the lovelorn British ex-pat Caleb Heathcote in 1701, Scarsdale is now home to 18,000 residents and the wealthiest town in Westchester County. You’ll find elite shops and restaurants in the Tudor-style downtown (a nod to those English roots) and massive multi-million-dollar estates farther out.
What to Expect
A mix of timeless charm and modern conveniences.
Walkable from the train station is the one-of-a-kind shops and restaurants in “the village.” Radiating north, south, and west, you’ll find Scarsdale’s five neighborhoods—each with its own elementary school—and larger chain stores like Trader Joe’s and Lord & Taylor.
Family-friendly and sophisticated.
While communing with your neighbors at the park, ballfield, or community pool, the conversation will likely turn to literature, music, art, and theater.
Endless opportunities for outdoor adventures.
Along with 12 public parks, Scarsdale boasts an equestrian center, public and private golf courses, a 700-acre nature preserve, and easy access to a 14.5-mile trail loop system that threads through Westchester.
An eclectic mix of homes.
Part of the appeal in Scarsdale stems from the wide variety of architectural offerings, from Tudors to Contemporaries to Colonials. Buyers can find quaint lots where they can get to know their neighbors or more secluded homes on 1+ acres of land. Homes with deep historical significance line the same streets as brand new construction, creating a charming melting pot of properties. An impressive school system, proximity to NYC, and a suite of local amenities within a bucolic setting make the Scarsdale market alluring to those who want to get away from it all without having to sacrifice convenience and lifestyle.
