Paine Heights, New Rochelle 10804

By
Real Estate Agent with Houlihan Lawrence #30RO0980081

This whole area  (Paine Heights, Wykagyl Park, Forest Heights), used to be called the "estate area " but with the now buyer's market, I am saddened to state that whereas the cheapest home would have cost $999,000 a few years ago, many homes are selling in the $6's, $7's and upwards depending upon their condition, etc. Known for the wide tree-lined boulevards and early 20th century homes featuring Mediterraneans, Colonials and Tudors, Paine Avenue  was named after Thomas Paine who was awarded 320 acres by New York State for his service to the country. Only 2 acres are remaining from that original parcel, and his original small modest home which burnt down in 1793 was rebuilt and is now called the Thomas Paine Museum & Cottage, housing artifacts from the 19th century.

Other exhibits in the cottage reflect the Huguenot settlement of New Rochelle such as the original 1689 deed to purchase 6,100 acres that became the city of New Rochelle.

 Thomas Paine

 The Paine Cottage and Museum are across the road from Paine Lake, a favorite haunt for ducks and geese.

Home prices range anywhere between the now high $5's to over 2 Million Dollars.

New Rochelle is GREAT!
