What does $770,000 buy in New Rochelle 10804?

01_15carlisleroad_57_frontview_hiresWygagyl Park is an extremely desirous area in which to reside. Many homes cost well over One Million Dollars, and upwards to 2 Million Dollars. So, when a home enters the market in the $700-800,000 range, it basically ‘pops’ out! 15 Carlisle Road was a 4 bedroom Cape Code (meaning 2 bedrooms on the first floor, and 2 bedrooms on the second floor) 2420 square foot home located on 0.028 of an acre. Typical homes in the same 10804 zip code were selling for far less, but this home’s location enabled the seller to obtain a higher sales point of $770,000.  Children in this area attend the  award winning William B. Ward Elementary School   New Rochelle, a great city-  full of history, and so close to New York City!   New Rochelle is GREAT!

Paine to Paine Half Marathon 2016

dsc06561Simply a gorgeous morning in the prestigious area of Paine Heights where the annual Paine to Pain Half Marathon took place this morning.  The New Ro Runners Race Club always outdo themselves in this wonderful event.

Here is the history of the race.  I arrived later.. and so was only able to catch the start of the third wave and the 4th wave. My loss!

New Rochelle-  a great city in which to live!

Lavender Sachet time again!

img_0218Each year I eagerly await my lavender crop, and each year I find myself growing more and more of the wonderfully fragrant herb. I then dry out the lavender flowers, and package the seeds into little sachets for my customers and clients. Giving is always nice, and it puts a smile on your face (and hopefully on others’ faces too!).  I was also thrilled this year to discover they were selling lavender sachets in a local supermarket. Ha!  They were being sold for $4.99 a sachet. Oh my!  Mine are free and given with love!
