Arrowcrest is small, exclusive neighborhood in Croton on Hudson that has a beautiful view of the Hudson River and abuts Hudson National Golf Club. The striking thing about the development is the great job they did to blend Arrowcrest homes in with the wooded nature of the area. The builder did not "scorch the Earth" and clear cut every inch the way I have lamented in the past. This is not only prettier, it yields more privacy for the homes. Although the oldest home here is only about 12, the maturity of the Arrowcrest neighborhood makes it feel far more established.
The subdivision was built mostly from 1998-2000. The average Arrowcrest home is about 4000 square feet with a 1-plus-acre lot. The last three sales in the development, all within the last 6 months, ranged from $875,000 to $910,000. There is a homeowner's association. Despite the atmosphere that suggests the contrary, the neighborhood enjoys municipal services for water and sewer- no wells or septic tanks here. Homes feature 2 car garages, full basements, central air conditioning, hydro air heat, and kitchens and master suites to die for.
The school district serving Arrowcrest homeowners is Croton-Harmon, which encompasses Tompkins Elementary, Van Cortlandt Middle School, and Croton-Harmon Senior High School. In addition to the golf course next door, there is Croton Point Park, Teatown Nature Reservation, and shopping in Mt Kisco or Peekskill is also close by. The Village of Croton is 5 minutes away down Riverside Avenue. To get anywhere from Arrowcrest you drive down the main road with a spectacular view of the Hudson River.
There is to be sure plenty of upscale housing in north Westchester; however, to get newer vintage homes in a wooded setting with a view of the Hudson is rare, and that scarcity makes Arrowcrest special indeed.
