Guest AccessYou get keys to the Studio and if you're coming by car you can also park in the driveway. Interaction with GuestsAs little or much as you want! Our family has lived here for 30 years and if you'd like some more ideas on what you can do, feel free to ask! My mom and sister(s) live in the house. They are super loving and friendly and will make sure you are comfortable and that you enjoy your stay. The NeighborhoodWe are located just 5-10m walking distance to EVERYTHING! ... Pace University is down the block! There's family coffee shops, bakeries, film center, Starbucks, biking, restaurants, bars, fully side-walked town, entertainment, and of course NYC (45min train).
Such a great place for a getaway from NYC or other places! Pleasantville attracts people from all over Westchester and outside areas for several reasons. It is home to the famous Jacob Burns Film Center which shows plenty of independent films.
Since we are located near Pace University so if you are visiting the school this house is perfect. You can walk down the block - less than 5 minutes.
There are plenty of restaurants, bars and activities. One of the famous restaurants in our area is Blue Hill Stone Barns (a farm to table restaurant about 10 min away.)
We have the "Best in Westchester" Farmer's Market in town every Saturday-Even in the winter- The Market moves Indoors. Lots of great local organic produce & beautiful home made goods.
There is a grocery store, Key Foods, located a 5 minute walk from the house.
And only 10 min away (by car) is Rockwood Park and Rockefeller Park --both are beautiful and located right on the Hudson River. They are great for walking or hiking trails.
Also less than 10 minutes is a huge bike path that goes up and down the Hudson. Ask us to borrow a bike!
If going to New York City is too far but you'd like to get out, White Plains is a 15 minute train ride and has great night life, food and entertainment as well. Getting AroundNOTE: HPN is Westchester airport and is only a 15minute ride to our house.
The house is only a 5 min walk to the train and to the central part of town, we can also provide bikes upon request. Ubers are available in the area. You can park in the driveway if you have a car. If you want to head to NYC, get on the train and it's only 45m, or drive and it's about 35-50m depending on where in the city you are looking to go. Other Things to NoteWe are open to discussing pets with you.
We have a dog who is very friendly. She stays in the kitchen of our home. Sometimes, you may see her in the fenced-in backyard.
