    For buyers looking for luxury living in Westchester without the traditional hassles of homeownership, Kensington Woods offers an ideal community.

    The gated enclave of 53 luxury homes located on 17 private acres in New Rochelle boasts easy, luxury living just 20 miles from Manhattan.

    The vision for Kensington Woods was a community of homes for buyers seeking maintenance-free luxury living without sacrificing the privacy of a single family home.

    A serene escape at 15 Stonygate Oval.

    The result, a private enclave of 53 luxury homes.

    The community is ideal for buyers looking for easy, resort-level living and plenty of space for entertaining friends and family. 

    These buyers aren’t looking to downsize or seeking townhouse-style living, so much as a home offering convenient, low-maintenance living. The Kensington Woods homeowners association takes care of that with snow removal, lot manicuring and groundskeeping. And while some of the community’s residents prefer spending the colder months in warmer climates, the turnkey HOA maintenance is ideal.

    A traditional New England aesthetic adorns Kensington Woods’ exteriors. Homes are set among mature silver beech and spruce trees on the grounds of an old estate in New Rochelle. 

    Convenience inspired the design of the homes in the community, including first-floor owner’s suites and elevators providing easy accessibility to all floors. Every accommodation has been designed with ease of living in mind including a variety of flex-use spaces perfect for customizing to the buyer’s interests, from a  wine cellar or a library, to a media or exercise room. Multi-zone thermostats offer convenience and energy-saving benefits. 

    Outside, carefully planned landscaping offers private backyard areas homeowners will never have to worry about maintaining.
