Anyone have any info on this area? The houses are gigantic here but go for less than you would normally see in the Rye Neck area. I am wondering why?

Very nice neighborhood. A couple of reasons for this:
  1. Water. There is a premium to be closer to the water. Seems kind of ridiculous, since the Greenhaven Beach is not particularly special, but it's something.
  2. Greenhaven History. Greenhaven was once one of the most high income and close-knit neighborhoods in Westchester. While this was tied to historical discrimination against Jews in Rye (Greenhaven used to be almost exclusively Jewish), it ironically created demand for the neighborhood. Greenhaven is still quite close-knit, but thankfully Rye is significantly less anti-Semitic now.
  3. Proximity to School Grounds. There are some buyers who consider this area too close to the school grounds. If you take a look at the map, a large portion of the neighborhood borders the athletic fields, and you definitely will be able to hear that during game and practice days in many parts of the neighborhood.
These are all quite minor, but they add up to a little discount.

We almost bought a house on Johnson Place a few years ago. It's a good location for proximity to both Rye and Mamaroneck. Not really a good neighborhood for walking though. The house we looked at needed some freshening up and I don't think anything had been done to it since it was built in 1999, so I think that is the case for a lot of the homes - they are 20 years old and at the stage when they need some improvements. One side of the street backs onto the athletic fields, which would be a no-go for a lot of people. The yards aren't very big. The lot we were looking at was advertised as an acre but it was mostly wooded and unusable. I've heard there are tons of block parties though. All the kids know each other. If we hadn't decided to up our budget we would have bought there because the price point was good.

Thanks for the feedback. The house we saw. Doesn’t back up to the field but I can see how that can be an issue .
