Historic Yorktown Heights, NY has a lot going for it, including the active adult community of Jefferson Village. This established development has 1,000 condominiums and a vibrant population of active adults. Even though it has many residents, it has a smaller-town feel, with winding streets and mature trees that homebuyers find very attractive.
Located in Westchester County, Jefferson Village is just 45 miles outside of New York City. Originally settled in 1683, Yorktown has many historic landmarks, plus parks and nature preserves, including beautiful Teatown Lake Reservation.
The town is very well-connected, with over 20 places of worship, notable farms like Hilltop Hanover Farm, Mohansic Golf Course, Turkey Mountain Nature Preserve, Franklin D. Roosevelt State Park, and plenty of other recreational offerings. Volunteer opportunities abound for residents, and many Jefferson Village homeowners participate in Yorktown’s club and service organizations.
Jefferson Village is also right across the street from Jefferson Valley Mall, and minutes away from Hudson Valley Hospital. When residents need to run errands, there is plenty of other shopping to do, including nearby groceries, bakeries, and markets. Active adults can relax and have a bite to eat at any of the many different restaurants for every palate and budget. Nearby airports include Westchester County and LaGuardia.
Traveling to any of these locales is easy because this 55+ community has easy access to both Route 6 and the Taconic State Parkway. The Big Apple also makes for an exciting day trip or short vacation.
Jefferson Village’s charming homes are priced from the low $100s to the mid $300s, and are available in five models ranging from 843 to 1,555 square feet with open layouts. Most have a second bedroom that offers extra space, two bathrooms, and one-car garages. There is also ample street parking available for residents and guests. Many of the units include patios, dens, and eat-in kitchens. The community homeowners' association keeps condos low-maintenance.
