What Can You Buy in Yorktown for $472,000?

J. Philip Real Estate sells YorktownI’ll be posting a market report on Yorktown in the very near future, but I thought I’d give a more specific snapshot at what $472,000 buys these days. 

This is a 3 bedroom split colonial with a den and 1.5 baths on a quiet street in the Countryside neighborhood that just closed yesterday. It sits on a beautifully landscaped .4 acres with a rear patio and backyard that backs up to woods. It has new vinyl siding, new windows and a new roof. It also boasts an eat in kitchen with lots of cabinets, first floor laundry, hardwood floors throughout, formal dining and living room with bay window, updated half bath, lower level family room and a poured concrete basement. Countryside is walking distance to the Triangle shopping center and 5 minutes from the Taconic parkway. It is a fantastic location.

There is plenty of parking, and the 2-car garage is also quite deep. 

As I said, it closed yesterday, and we were delighted to help Scott and Leslie buy their first home together. We wish them many happy healthy years there.
