Larchmont

Why Live Here?
Larchmont is a beautiful little village that boasts the prettiest public walking paths to be found along Long Island Sound in the pristine and peaceful Manor Park. Artists at easels are often seen painting the beauty of the environment, and many benches enable residents and visitors to relax and enjoy the vistas. Begun in the early 1700s as a summer resort town for New Yorkers looking for a retreat, Larchmont maintains some of that history in it’s architecture and tree-lined streets. It’s oldest and most historic home, the Manor House, was originally planted with larch trees that eventually gave the village its name.

The Village of Larchmont, and its unincorporated area, while self-governing, are part of the Town of Mamaroneck. Larchmont schools are part of the Mamaroneck Union Free School District, with elementary students in one of two esteemed K-5 schools in the Village, and middle and high school students attending The Hommocks School in Mamaroneck for grades 6 – 8 and Mamaroneck High School for grades 9 – 12. The schools are highly rated and residents are invested in and proud of the quality of education the schools provide.

There are two shopping areas in Larchmont, one along Palmer Avenue, and the other along the Boston Post Road. Both are home to excellent restaurants, local shops, and small galleries. A favorite eatery is Stanz Café, a very popular and highly rated farm to table restaurant for breakfast and lunch. Another is Vintage 1891 Kitchen with an extensive lunch and dinner menu that pleases the discerning patron over and over again. The Larchmont movie theater has been repurposed to show art films and film festival favorites, and town spirit and pride are evidenced in the Norman Rockwell-like parades and celebrations of Memorial Day and other holidays.

At 1.1 square miles, the Village of Larchmont rates high on the walkability scale, but also has its own Metro North railroad station that serves commuters to New York City and other business areas. Many renovated houses date to pre World War II years, and there are wonderful Victorians, Colonials, and major estates to be found surrounding the playgrounds and parks that pepper the village. Larchmont is home to many writers, artists and financiers who appreciate the quality of life their home town offers.


Why We Love It!
Be sure to take a walk through Manor Park and check out the sailboats and sailors on Long Island Sound. I don’t think there’s a view that pretty anywhere else on the East Coast. ~ Kristen

The kids love Chatsworth Avenue School and Hommocks Middle School. The teachers truly care about the kids, and give them plenty of creative outlets through the awesome arts curriculum. ~ Andrea
