Bronxville Real Estate – The History of Bronxville
Welcome to the best source for Bronxville Real Estate, Barhite and Holzinger. And of course, real estate in the rest of lower Westchester. Bronxville and Tuckahoe are villages a part of the town of Eastchester. Which is why the communities are so intertwined. Being just a 40 minute or less Metro North train ride to NYC is one of the top reasons residents love living in the area. And of course, there is the shopping on Pondfield Road filled with boutiques and friendly small businesses. For bigger shopping chains like Lord & Taylors and Brook’s Brothers people can go to the Eastchester on White Plains Road, about a five minute car ride.
For over 350 years Eastchester has been around, along with its villages. Back in the 19th century the dwelling of Lancaster O. Underhill was the center of the village. So, if anyone knows the area they are aware of the restaurant, Underhill Crossing, paying a tribute to Bronxville’s early beginnings. It is also a very delicious restaurant to eat at, with amazing outdoor dining in the summer. In 1898 Lancaster O. Underhill also become the first railroad station. And post office. Making the walk to train characteristic most of our clients currently looking for a historic part of Bronxville since it has been a highlight of the area for over a century.
The entire vision of Bronxville was based on the vision of William Van Duzer Lawrence. The result of Lawrence Park, one of Westchester’s first planned communities. Lawrence was a native New Yorker. He was also the developer of Bronxville’s Lawrence Park, and Yonker’s Lawrence Park West; and Lawrence Hospital and Sarah Lawrence College. This probably answers everyone’s question who was wondering why Lawrence is in the name of so many great developments.
