Lewisboro’s sprawling estates, lush greenery, and horse country atmosphere make the town an undeniably beautiful place in which to live.
Today, Lewisboro bit of Americana features an abundance of greenery, gracious mansions set on several acres, and seven pristine lakes. For many years, it has had two and four acre zoning. This has ensured the privacy of its residents as well as preservation of the town’s natural beauty. However, new construction has allowed for homes to be built closer together — ideal for those who wish their children to have the idealistic neighborhood childhood experience.
Many who enjoy the private palatial estates that Lewisboro has to offer have agreed to allow horse trails to cross their property. In fact, it is not an unusual sight to see horseback riders sauntering down the road on the backs of equine beauties. The Lewisboro Horseman’s Association monitors trails that cover more than 1,500 acres of private property. In addition, the Ward Pound Ridge Reservation offers more than 4,500 acres of parkland, much of which has horse trails winding through it. Other town parks provide an additional 179 acres of natural green space with ball fields, tennis courts, and playgrounds.
Although the natural beauty and pristine estates are a huge draw to Lewisboro, the schools are perhaps one the most enviable features in the area. It offers an abundance of extracurricular activities, including theater, debate, mock trial, A Cappella groups, lacrosse, football, soccer, and wrestling.
