The elite hamlet of Waccabuc, New York is located within the town of Lewisboro, in the northeastern corner of Lewisboro.
Seated on Lake Waccabuc, this 445-resident hamlet has been home to such notable figures as Sean Combs, William H. Donaldson, Bryant Gumbel, Gwyneth Paltrow, Keith Richards, and Ogden R. Reid. Perhaps one of Waccabuc's most attractive features is the intimacy it provides. 2-4 acre lots are the norm, allowing abundant space for palatial summer retreats and year-round residences alike. However, in order to own a piece of the natural beauty within Waccabuc, wanna-be residents must often place themselves on a waiting list. In fact, current residents are so insistent upon preserving the landscape, that they have formed the Waccabuc Land Owner's Association. This trust is in charge of preserving nearly 100 acres of natural space within the hamlet.
So protective are Waccabuc's residents of their community, that years ago, when the local post office was slated for closure, a local landowners group bought the building and now leases it to the government. This sense of community and fellowship is a thread that runs strongly throughout Waccabuc.
Grand Central Terminal is accessible via the Metro-North Railroad stations in Golden's Bridge and Katonah. Commute time is about 1.5 hours.
Stunning beauty, excellent schools, and privacy are among the well-hidden treasures that this tiny hamlet has to offer.
