The Gateway to the Country
Armonk is first northern Westchester suburb that has a genuine country feeling. Its rolling hills and sweeping vistas suggest a bucolic retreat from the hustle and bustle. Homes are sited on large parcels of land that give their owners privacy and solitude. Yet 15 minutes from Armonk is the hub of White Plains and shopping at The Westchester. To the north and a 10 minute drive is Mt. Kisco, with shopping and restaurants. Express trains from the North White Plains Metro-North station take you to Grand Central Station, total commute time is less than an hour.
Armonk also has a thriving corporate population, namely IBM’s 25 acre corporate headquarters, and SwissRe US headquarters. Employees keep local retailers busy and most importantly, Armonk’s substantial corporate tax base keeps residential property taxes lower than other towns in Westchester.
