As Summer winds down and we start to think about fall, 2 things come to mind: The back to school season & fall family activities.
170 Crest Drive is part of the Tarrytown School District, offering K-12 education with additional features such as a competitive Dual Language Program, a Pre-K Lottery for their full-day Pre-K Program and a variety of extracurricular and enrichment activities for all grade levels.
Additionally, nestled within the Crest neighborhood is Hackley School, a private K-12 prep school boasting top-notch facilities and a competitive curriculum for its students as well as many extra-curricular and enrichment opportunities for the broader community. Hackley offers a “friends of Hackley” pass that provides community members with access to its network of trails, 400m track, playground, and beautiful campus.
In addition to the magic of the back-to-school season, something truly spellbinding happens in the Tarrytown Community in the Fall.
Tarrytown is home to the Hudson Valley Historical Society, the organization responsible for the infamous Great Jack O’lantern Blaze, an elaborate display of over 2,500 carved pumpkins. Historic Hudson Valley also runs sites like Kykuit (The Rockefeller Estate) and Sunnyside (Washington Irving’s home).
Ever heard of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow? Yea. That’s us. Sleepy Hollow actually shares a zip code with Tarrytown and the two areas are bustling with street fairs, events and historical tours in the fall!
Overall, 170 Crest Drive and the surrounding community is absolutely worth consideration. The home itself features a large, screened in porch, an open floor plan and a beautiful separate garden. It features 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 1,517 sq. ft.
Asking is $639,999 and the next open house is Sunday August 14, 2022 from 11AM to 1PM.
When you come to visit, be sure to walk around town and note some of the sites we mentioned in this article. As much as we tried, it is near-impossible to convey the charm of this area with words.
