Rochelle Heights Tennis Club – 10801

It is such a great private club that you would think more people are aware of it! Just 2 red clay tennis courts (did you know a clay tennis court makes it  easier on the knees?) . The Rochelle Heights Tennis Club is located on the Boulevard East in New Rochelle, and new members pay only $200 for the first season.  In trying to see how many red clay tennis courts there are in the US, I could not find an exact number but it would seem there are not too many.

If you live in the Rochelle Heights area then it is $350 for the tennis season, and just $325 if you are a continuing member. Why just $200 for new members who do not live in Rochelle Heights?  Simply because they wish to attract more members so the courts can be utilized more, and enjoyed by more tennis players!

The Rochelle Heights Neighborhood Association held a nice get together at the tennis courts recently too!   (June 7th)   5:30PM – 7:30PM ” Red Clay & Rosé event at the tennis courts.”

I also just learned that various neighbors ‘adopt’ a traffic island. Margaret Chadwick (President of the Rochelle Heights Neighborhood Association) adopted the island  by the entrance to The Serpentine, and it is beautiful!

New Rochelle is GREAT!

The Harbour Fish & Company – Mamaroneck 10543

Well, I never thought I would find fish cooked Cajun style in Mamaroneck, but when this fish store, The Harbour Fish & Company caught my eye, I couldn’t wait to taste the “shrimp Po Boy” and the “Conch fritters” !  The owner could not have been lovelier, and the staff were all eager to please. There is a small counter area where you can dine in the store, and in the limited time I was there waiting for my order,  there was one  diner enjoying a dozen oysters (at just $18 for the dozen),  and there was a steady stream of customers.

You can purchase fresh fish, or simply have it cooked for you and there is a huge selection to choose from such as lobsters, tilapia, flounder, codfish, calamari, shrimp, fried oysters.. 

My “shrimp po boy” and conch fritters were seasoned to perfection. Very tasty.  I love fresh bread, and to me,  bread can make or break a sandwich. The roll for the shrimp was huge and fresh, but I would have suggested a French style crustier bread or even an Italian crusty Bastone bread but that is just me and my preferences! 

I will definitely got here again, and I am embarrassed to say that it has been open since last November I understand, and yours truly just noticed it!

I wish the Harbour Fish & Company happy sailings.

Mamaroneck is GREAT!

Larchmont Farmer’s Market – Always Great!

Larchmont is GREAT!

Posted in New Rochelle Area Information | Leave a comment

Larchmont Woods – a great area in which to Reside!

1.11 acres of lush property located so very close to Larchmont Village

Larchmont Woods has always been a very desirable area, and is the area located between New Rochelle and Larchmont and features properties in both Larchmont and New Rochelle. The homes can present a 10538 zip code but be in New Rochelle, and some homes can have a 10804 zip code but having a sliver of land in Larchmont can be eligible for Larchmont schools.

The George M. Davis Elementary School is the designated school for those New Rochelle homes, and traditionally homes have always cost a little more because of the desirability of the area. Why? Well, Larchmont Village is close by and easily accessed, and so it is quite easy for home owners to pop into Larchmont village and enjoy the various restaurants there such as Lusardi’s, Chat 19, Larchmont Tavern, Encore French Bistro, and Madison Kitchen as examples.
Larchmont Woods is also very near to the vibrant and dynamic downtown New Rochelle where there is so much new construction happening to better our great city. The New Rochelle train station is also the only city in Westchester with Amtrak trains going to Boston and Washington, D.C.

There are some great restaurants in New Rochelle also such as Coramandel Indian Cuisine, Dubrovnik Restaurant, Modern Restaurant, Alvin & Friends and Hurley’s Steakhouse.

It is unusual to find a home with acreage in Larchmont Woods, and so to find such a home on the market is truly special! One Beechtree Drive is located in a quite cul de sac, and offers 1.11 acres of lush private land and great tranquility. Walking distance to downtown Larchmont and a simply breathtaking home.

Something for everyone!

Westchester is GREAT!

Stained Glass Windows in Lower Westchester

Per Wikipedia, it states ” The term stained glass can refer to colored glass as a material or to works created from it. Throughout its thousand-year history, the term has been applied almost exclusively to the windows of churches, mosques and other significant buildings. ”

It is true, as I think we all associate stained glass windows with that special building or home. The detail, time and design associated with creating and installing that special window can make a room spectacular.

“Stained glass is still popular today, but often referred to as art glass. It is prevalent in luxury homes, commercial buildings, and places of worship. Artists and companies are contracted to create beautiful art glass ranging from domes, windows, backsplashes, etc. ” Wikipedia

 

 

One Beechtree Drive in Larchmont Woods (New Rochelle) offer architecturally breathtaking design, rich oak paneling with exquisite detailing, a sweeping staircase, and a polished slate entrance hallway. However, when you enter the step down living room with its Cathedral windows, huge sandstone fireplace and stained glass windows, you can fully appreciate the old world grandeur (but renovated beautifully for today’s discerning buyer!).

Come and visit. You will love it!

New Rochelle is GREAT!
