Mr. Timmings said Thornwood has nearly 1,400 single-family homes, including two townhouse developments, and 48 two- and three-family homes. The only condominiums are in a 27-unit complex called Kensico Arms, a converted school. There are no co-op or rental buildings.
What You’ll Pay
“Some people think Westchester is too expensive unless you go farther north,” said Tara Siegel, an agent at Houlihan Lawrence who works in partnership with Jordie Wilk. “But Thornwood offers affordable options and a great commute.”
Prices start in the $200,000s for condominiums, she said, with modest houses to the west in the $300,000s and $400,000s. Elsewhere, she said, “a lot of the homes will be in the $500,000s, $600,000s and $700,000s, and there are areas of high-end homes that will go for over $1 million.”
Sales of Thornwood’s pricier homes have slowed, Ms. Longo said, possibly because of changes in the tax laws. But “anything under $750,000 is hot,” she added. “Inventory is low, and when a home is priced right, it can generate multiple offers, and you can get close to and occasionally over asking.”
According to the Hudson Gateway Multiple Listing Service, as of Mar. 4, there were 12 single-family homes on the market in Thornwood, from a two-bedroom, 1,100-square-foot ranch, built in 1956 and listed for $384,500, to a five-bedroom, 5,550-square-foot colonial, built in 1928 and listed for $1.15 million.
