A Chance for Home Ownership
WPCNR COUNTY CLARION-LEDGER. By County Legislator Bill Ryan. August 28, 2013:
In Westchester, finding a home to buy that’s affordable is a challenge for many. While the County is working to make more fair and affordable housing available, opportunities to buy an affordable home don’t come along every day. That’s why today, I’m happy to let you know about a new chance for affordable home ownership up in northern Westchester: Crompond Crossing.
This new townhouse development in Yorktown is located at 3372 Old Crompond Road, just off Route 35/202. Crompond Crossing is near shopping, doctors, the library, schools, parks and recreation. The Bee Line Bus offers service to White Plains and Peekskill and a commuter coach to the Croton-Harmon train station for access to Grand Central Station. The Taconic Parkway provides easy car access to lower Westchester and New York City.
Each Crompond Crossing townhome has 3 bedrooms and 2-1/2 baths, hook-ups for a washer and dryer, and a gas-fired heating and cooling system. The units average 1,345 sq. ft. Each comes with two assigned parking spaces. The sale prices for these homes range from $221,121 to $233,951. Assuming a 5% down payment, your cost (including principal and interest on your mortgage, homeowners insurance, and real estate taxes) would be approximately $2,000 a month.
