Chappaqua in Westchester county, New York

Chappaqua, NY

Chappaqua is quaint yet majestic hamlet perfectly blends rural charm, community, and sophistication.

Chappaqua, the Native American word for "the rustling land," is an apt way to describe this scenic hamlet. Home to 1,436 people, tucked away in this small haven of a community lies a variety of homes ranging from prodigiously exquisite colonials, to the more simple yet modern single-family homes. Nestled among such towns as Mount Kisco, New Castle and Mount Pleasant, Chappaqua is the gem of the area.

This sprawling community covers an area of 9.4 square miles. The small country lanes meandering through this town paint a wistfully woodsy experience — offering residents the privacy of a luxuriant woodland, while still maintaining the ease of proximity to allow for neighborly companionship.

Although the cost of living in this charming community is slightly higher than in surrounding towns, most residents feel the payoffs are worth the cost to live in this amicable location. They cherish the feeling of living in a place where everybody knows each other's name, and friendly greetings are exchanged along the roadside. Smaller homes in the downtown area sit on lots ranging upwards in size from .10 acres, and enjoy the close-knit and lively community thereabouts. As homes extend from the downtown, they become more sizable and spaciously situated, sometimes on 3-4 acres of woodland.

This hamlet is at a convenient distance for commuters, being only 35 miles from midtown Manhattan. The commute by train from Chappaqua to Grand Central Terminal is between 50 and 60 minutes. The train station even offers the convenience of being within walking distance from a number of homes in the downtown area.

There is much to do in Chappaqua for recreation. The gazebo in the center of downtown is abuzz with free summer evening concerts, echoing throughout the laid-back community. Parks and fields around the hamlet welcome families to friendly games of ball. The Chappaqua Library hosts many free events and activities in their children's room, including several story times throughout the day.
