A great example of the American Craftsman, Bungalow Style of architecture, popular during the Arts and Crafts Movement, this home in Irvington NY has so much potential to offer. Known as The Hampton model, it was originally built in 1926 as a three bedroom home and later converted to two, but is easily converted back. Featuring 9′ ceilings thru-out, it boasts a wonderful covered front porch, large living room, huge formal dining room, kitchen, two bedrooms and a full bath. It has a flat rear yard with a driveway and 1 car garage underneath. There are hardwood floors under the wall to wall carpeting and recent vinyl windows. The original detailing still exists with the rafters exposed at the eaves and masonry piers and columns. Great for a tasteful restoration or as an alternative to a condo, with no shared walls or association fee. Located in the Irvington school district and a quick commute by Metro North train to Manhattan. Great expansion potential, up or out. Don’t wait too long to see this one!

The Irvington Penguin Plunge Is March 22, 2015, At 1 PM

This years Penguin Plunge, which hopefully signals the end of winter, will be held on the beach at Matthiessen Park, on the Irvington Waterfront, Sunday March 22, at 1 PM. A fundraising event at its core, in past years it has raised money for Irvington senior programs, open gym for teens, summer camp scholarships, the July 4th community fireworks celebration and additional revenue for the Park & Recreation Department’s budget. The March 22 date appears optimistic, given that we have had one of the coldest winters to date and the amount of ice in the Hudson River currently impedes all water access. If you want to give it a try this year, full details can be found on the event website at: https://sites.google.com/site/irvingtonplunge/

UPDATE: The Irvington Penguin Plunge is in postponement until its new date Sunday April 26.
