Amawalk is a community located in Westchester County. The elevation is 413 feet. Amawalk appears on the Mohegan Lake U.S. Geological Survey Map.
If you’re looking for a quiet community in Westchester County, be sure to stop by the Amawalk, NY real estate community. Nestled inside the Town of Somers, Amawalk is the gateway to a beautiful reservoir only 32 miles north of New York City. Your friends at Mancini Realty want to be sure you know about this hidden gem.
The Muscoot River has flowed to the Croton River for centuries, but was impounded in 1897 to create a small fresh water reservoir. At that time, the nearby community of Amawalk relocated to be out of the way of the reservoir, but still close to the dam. Though only 3 miles wide, the reservoir is an important component in the delivery of New York City’s drinking water.
The area, like much of north-central Westchester County, has a long history of Quaker settlement. In fact, the Amawalk Friends Meeting House was added to the National Registry of Historic Places in 1989. Though the Quaker community is significantly smaller today, the meeting house is still regularly visited by several Amawalk residents.
The combination of rivers and reservoir make the Amawalk real estate region a gorgeous place to live. In the fall, the trees surrounding the reservoir turn beautiful shades of orange and red, and summers are abundant with green foliage. The area is a short drive to many parks, and is the perfect location for any nature lover.
The sprawling countryside that makes up the Amawalk real estate community allows a huge variety in housing types and prices. From homes in the millions to the two hundred thousands, Amawalk has something to offer for most everyone. Because the Amawalk real estate community is so small, there are generally only a few homes on the market at any given time, so it’s important to tell your Mancini Real Estate Agent as soon as possible if you’re interested in this location to be sure you find the home that’s right for you.
