Goldens Bridge is not your typical suburb. While it’s very close to Interstate 684, making it an easy commute to southern Westchester, Connecticut or the Metro-North, this 2.6 square mile hamlet of Lewisboro is packed with rolling hills and densely wooded areas.
What started as a major dairy stop during the mid-19th century, Goldens Bridge quickly became a summer destination favorite for New York City dwellers. The Colony, a neighborhood within Goldens Bridge, was founded as a summer getaway cooperative and includes a man-made lake. The summer homes have since been winterized and in the summer months, it is home to a top summer camp. While there are aseveral classic neighborhoods in Goldens Bridge, many houses are sprinkled on side streets and scenic back roads to offer more privacy, like my beautiful listing on Sullivan Road.
Goldens Bridge offers plenty of scenic nature and outdoor activities including hiking, snowshoeing, or walks along quiet roads. Goldens Bridge is also included in the highly accredited Katonah-Lewisboro School District, known for it’s great educators, course offerings and athletics program. Many residents travel to nearby Katonah, Mount Kisco, Bedford or Danbury to shop, find upscale dining and other indoor activities.
For the commuter, the trip to Grand Central Terminal takes about an hour during peak travel and the parking lot offers plenty of parking spaces. For most, it’s a short drive, much like my featured listing (see below). A gated private entrance leads to a captivating stone and shingle Colonial with wraparound porch sited perfectly on 11+ landscaped acres and garage for 4 cars.
