Residential Neighborhoods: Rosedale – White Plains, NY 10605

pngRosedale is a neighborhood at the Southern tip of White Plains .  The location gives it the distinction of being about as far removed from the hustle and bustle of the downtown as is physically possible while still being in White Plains.  The streets meander and are relatively narrow with no sidewalks.  The area is quite secluded and quiet with few streets acting as a cut-through for  downtown bound traffic.

Although the neighborhood has some pre-war homes, this area of White Plains started developing in the 1950s and continued into the 70s and 80s.  There are quite of few pockets of contemporary homes in this neighborhood along with traditional colonials,  a few raised ranches and split-levels that were popular during the 1960s and 1970s.  This is now a  mature neighborhood with much of the usable land already developed. - although many of the earlier smaller homes are undergoing renovations and are morphing into larger homes with more modern amenities and square footage.   The average lot size is larger than in the Highlands averaging from 0.2-0.3 acre lots.  So there is plenty of room for a front and back yard  for the vast majority of homes. On average there are about four homes per acre.  png

 

Recent sales show that the average sale price was close to $700,000 with a range of roughly $560k- $900k.  Larger homes can sell for far more – so those price points can be misleading.  The differences in square footage create a wide price range with the renovated and new homes selling for over $1 million while smaller original homes sell for considerably less.  For example a new pre-construction home  of 3000 sq.ft. sitting on 0.21 acres is currently listed for close to $1.1 million.  In general, it should also be noted that older homes that have more “charm” sell at a premium in Westchester.  Given that the vast majority of homes were built during the 1950s – 1970s. – Rosedale is a wonderful neighborhood to find more square footage for the dollar.  Although the general design of many of these houses is not currently “popular” – they have great floor plans and are relatively easy to renovate.

High-Wattage Christmas - White Plains, NY 10605
Ruthmarie Hicks (Keller Williams NY Realty - 120 Bloomingdale Road #101, White Plains NY 10605)

Every Holiday Season I go "Christmas Light Watching" with friends.  Tonight we saw some interesting "light shows" that the kids would really love. To some this is truly over the top - but I have to appreciate the sheer number of man-hours that went into these efforts. My main caveat is - if you are trying to sell your home, this is probably not a good idea.... Here are a couple of photos from last night....enjoy....
