Located just 30 miles outside of New York City, the tony enclave of Scarsdale is the richest town on the East Coast and the second richest town in America, according to Bloomberg 2019 Richest Places report.
Scarsdale’s average household income is an astonishing $417,335, according to Bloomberg. Famous neighbors include American billionaire investor Daniel Och and hedge fund honcho David Siegel, according to Westchester Magazine. While many homeowners cite the award-winning schools as the main draw to the leafy suburb, the homes themselves are fit for a king.
Here’s a look behind the hedges of Scarsdale.
This palatial estate was recently at the center of a bidding war between two Major League Baseball players. The close proximity to all major sporting arenas in the New York area and superb privacy make this property a home run for any professional athlete. The home was also featured in Jerry Seinfeld’s hit Netflix show “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee”. Listing agent Heather Harrison of Compass told FOX Business the home is in turn-key condition, perfect for entertaining and well-suited for a family who wants it all.

“The home caters to someone who enjoys a refined lifestyle but is also extremely practical and livable for a family,” Harrison said.
Not to be outdone, the children’s wing is a playtime fairly tale with its own indoor “treehouse”. There isn’t a kid on this planet that wouldn’t love living here.
