For a small town, Waccabuc sure offers so much to many types of residents…or potential ones: the commuter, a young family, the couple looking for a new house after the kids are grown- no wonder Waccabuc is “New York’s Secret Suburb.” Having this wonderful listing helps me appreciate everything that is “just close enough”.
When looking for a house or a place to call home, sometimes you want to find out what makes the town special. Any famous or historical event? What quirks does the town have? What makes this place so cool? Waccabuc has just that.
Before becoming a hamlet of its very own, Waccabuc started off as a vacation retreat, touting an upscale feel, “No tramps bars or malaria here..” were the rumored spoken words by the original settlers, The Mead Family. In fact, Tarry-a-Bit, the very road that my listing is on, was named after the vacation house it originally served.
Many people are continually drawn to the beauty, charm and character that Waccabuc offers. Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller celebrated their nuptials in Waccabuc. The Mead Memorial Chapel and The Homestead, both of which are listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the town itself is pending official designation as a historic district and it’s what caught the celebrities’ eyes.
Today, Waccabuc is close to a variety of restaurants, shopping and activities. Waccabuc is home to Waccabuc Country Club, which offers year round activities, but also close enough to enjoy additional nearby recreational activities. The horse farms in North Salem, the hiking in Bedford, shopping and dining in Ridgefield and Katonah, all within quick access to major highways and byways to White Plains , Stamford and Manhattan are all the cards in Waccabuc’s deck.
