The Tarryhill Community
Tarryhill is a unique neighborhood enclave consisting of 104 single family homes located in the Village of Tarrytown, in the Irvington School District just 35 miles from NYC.
Surrounded by many of the area's most historic sites and nature preserves, Tarryhill is east of Broadway (Rte 9) across from the 67 acre Lyndhurst estate, a short walk from the Old Croton Aqueduct Trailway and bordered on the east side by the 200 acre Taxter Ridge Park Preserve. The Mario Cuomo Bridge - Bicycle & Pedestrian Path spanning the Hudson River (running, biking & hiking) is also within walking distance.
The Tarryhill Community is conveniently located near all major highways. It is approximately 40 minutes to NYC by train or car and it is just 5 minutes from the Mario Cuomo Bridge. The Metro North train station is nearby. There are numerous express trains to NYC from Tarrytown and there is abundant parking available at the train station.
In the late 1960s, Robert Martin Associates obtained approval to build 114 single family homes on the 47 acre tract of land now known as Tarryhill. As part of the approval agreement, the developer agreed to set aside 10 acres of the property as undeveloped common space for the residents’ use.
In 1969/1970, 76 single family homes were constructed and a significant portion of the property was left undeveloped.
This "first phase" of Tarryhill contained a recreational center near the entrance, for the exclusive use by Tarryhill residents. The recreational center included a clubhouse for events, dances & parties, a swimming pool, a wading pool, two tennis courts, a playground, a picnice area, a small pond & a parking lot. Tarryhill homeowners pay a modest annual fee to maintain this recreational facility.
In the late 1990s, another developer revitalized the original Tarryhill proposal and had an additional 28 building lots approved for the remaining undeveloped land.
In 1999/2000, an additional 28 homes were built as part of the “second phase” of Tarryhill with an additional green space & recreational area being created near the newly constructed residences (Pilot House Park - 10 acres) which included another playground, two tennis courts and basketball court. As part of the approval for "Phase II", money was set aside to modernize & improve the original recreation center (the pool, playground, clubhouse & tennis courts)
Today, the Tarryhill Community is a single neighborhood enclave consisting of 104 single family homes. Many Tarryhill homes have views of the Hudson River. All utilities are underground (no utilitity poles or overhead wires). Map of Tarryhill Community
