North Country

Not to be forgotten are the central and northern Westchester communities of Armonk, Chappaqua, Mt. Kisco, Bedford, Bedford Hills, Katonah, Goldens Bridge and Somers. Served by the Harlem line of Metro North, commuting times range from 30 to 60 minutes. Land is in abundance here, with many Northern Westchester homes offering 1-2 acre zoning and the horse farms in North Salem are truly beautiful. Horse trails wind among antique homes that are hundreds of years old. Bedford, Pound Ridge and Lewisboro also have a wealth of mid century contemporary homes mixed in with traditional colonials and capes. Caramoor International Music Festival and the Katonah Museum of Art are community favorites and attract many visitors to the area. It is not unusual to find local residents living in farm houses in Westchester County who grow organic vegetables and sell their produce at local farmers markets that are held in almost every local village and town.
