Offering a unique combination of ample recreational facilities, unspoiled natural beauty and an outstanding education system consistently ranked among the top nationwide, Scarsdale has been compared to a Utopian village. Strolling through downtown Scarsdale, one can enjoy the charm of the Tudor-style buildings which dominate the area and are a landmark of the village's English heritage. It offers shoppers a selection of old-fashioned and gourmet food stores, a supermarket, unique flower shops, book and toy stores, a variety of clothing stores for adults and children, gift and jewelry shops, and the town's main Post Office.
Located 21 Miles from Manhattan, Scarsdale is a community of gently rolling hills dotted with single-family homes. Its resplendent setting has retained its natural appeal, with swan ponds, expansive meadows, and a nature preserve with walking paths.
Chase Park, in the heart of downtown, further enhances the area. There is open space where residents enjoy picnicking or music concerts. A few steps away from The Heathcote there is a vast selection of food stores including Balducci's, a gourmet food store which is a favorite among local residents who enjoy meeting for a cappuccino at the espresso bar.
For those who prefer the sophistication and wide selections available at larger stores, the highly acclaimed "The Westchester," is located only a few minutes away in neighboring White Plains. One can shop at the department stores such as Neiman-Marcus and Nordstrom and over 200 other specialty stores. Lord and Taylor, Bloomingdale's, Macy's, and Whole Foods are located nearby.
