What Can You Buy in Ossining for $675,000?

Hudson ViewWhat does $675,000 buy in Ossining, New York? 

I’ll tell you.

$675,000 just got someone a 2004 built 3600 square foot 5 bedroom 3.5 bath colonial with a killer view of the Hudson River from the rear deck. The Birch Court neighborhood is on the old grounds of the Briar Crest nursing home, and the whole street is lined with picturesque colonials. The one we listed back in April also had a full, finished walkout basement, a sweet rocking chair porch, a 2 car garage, open floor plan, and a phenomenal kitchen with a huge island.

The Metro North train is minutes away, as is shopping, schools, and just about every village amenity you can think of. The home also had almost a half acre lot. One of the more recent sales on Birch Court was in the low 500’s. I listed this house on April 25th and in about two weeks we had a contract at over asking price after multiple bids. It closed July 9th, 74 short days after I listed the property.

My clients had a cool idea when we first put the home up, which was to have an open house one evening just for the neighbors. We got an offer so quickly that it turned out to be more of a farewell bash, and I had the chance to chat with my clients’ son about the sale of the home. he told me he loved the place, and that someday he would buy the house back.

Yes. It was that nice a home.
