Most people may not think of Valhalla when moving up from the city or to Westchester County in general! But, Valhalla, a hamlet part of Mt. Pleasant,which is right past North White Plains has a lot to offer. Most of the Hamlet is a hilly division between the Bronx River Parkway and the Kensico Reservoir. It has a small town feeling with just a short two blocks of restaurants and local Deli. But, easily accessible to nearby shopping centers! According to Great Schools and the NYSED Report Cards (click on Valhalla and scroll down to test results), schools rank high on all levels.
As the articles indicate, the Plaza is a park that is a destination point for arts and crafts fairs, music and movies in the summer (in addition to fireworks!), and those who want to online skate, or have a picnic and the vast lawn. It is at the end of the bike trail that starts farther down in Westchester County!
The Kenisco Reservoir is stocked with fish for those fisherman out there. You can get a row boat (no motors allowed), but it needs to be cleaned and permanently assigned a place along the banks by the DEP. Necessary fishing and boat permits are needed. There is a section of Valhalla that has homes that face the water!

"We have been working with Anthony and the team at Gorton and Romeo for 3 plus years. They have found us the perfect rental 3 years ago and during the past year have found us the perfect home. Anthony spent countless hours researching homes and open houses for us to view. Their local knowledge of the market as well as the agents is helpful during both the searching and the negotiating process. We are moving in soon and very thankful to have had the help of the Gorton and Romeo team. "
