bridleside tourJuly 22, 2016 - Interested in affordable housing? Westchester County has just released a seven-minute virtual tour narrated by Westchester County Executive Robert P. Astorino, which highlights efforts by the county to make housing more affordable through its subsidy program.

“To attract young families and keep seniors in their homes, Westchester works every day to keep the county affordable,” Astorino said. “Every family on a budget knows that expenses never seem to go down. Taxes and housing are two areas where the county has made affordability a priority.”

The virtual tour presents both rental opportunities, available to prospective residents at 50–60 percent of area median income, as well as home ownership opportunities, at 80 percent of area median income, including:

  • Bridleside, North Salem. The 65-unit affordable rental complex, located on 40 acres with a 3,200 square-foot clubhouse, a recreation field and onsite parking, is made up of 20 one-bedroom, 40 two-bedroom and five three-bedroom units.
  • 25 Oak Rd, Cortlandt. The single-family home in Montrose features four bedrooms and two bathrooms, and will remain affordable to a home buyer for up to 50 years.
  • Old Route 22, North Castle. A short walk from downtown Armonk, 10 affordable two-bedroom townhouses are being completed for sale.
  • 55 Pleasant Ave, Pleasantville. A two-in-one opportunity for ownership, this three-bedroom home also offers a one-bedroom accessory apartment that the owner may rent.
  • Waterwheel, Ardsley. 17 homeowner condominiums, including 15 two-bedroom and two three-bedroom units, within this 22-unit development are offered at an affordable purchase price.
  • Cottage Landings, Rye. This 18-unit affordable townhouse development consists of 11 one-bedroom units, and seven one-bedroom units with dens.

Additional affordable housing opportunities are highlighted through Westchester County’s One Community Campaign, on its Affordable Housing Photo Gallery.

“Affordable housing is important, so that residents across the economic spectrum can live and work in our great county. That’s why Westchester County has been running award-winning affordable housing programs for more than two decades,” Astorino said.

The homes presented in the virtual tour are products of the 2009 affordable housing settlement. For more information, visit www.westchestergov.com/housing.
