Lovely 4 Bed home swap in South Salem, USA
A 4 bedroom 2 1/2 bath house with a large screened-in porch on 3.5 beautifully landscaped acres 1 hr from New York City by car or by train. Enjoy the cultural riches and excitement of New York City while at the same time relaxing in the country.
The house is located in South Salem NY which is right on the border with Connecticut. The two nearest towns, Ridgefield and New Canaan (10-12 minutes away),are both in Connecticut and are very attractive small towns. The area in between is fairly rural with pool, tennis courts and golf nearby. It's just a beautiful area. We are 20 minutes away from the nearest Atlantic Ocean beach. Jones Beach, 6.5 miles of pure white sand, is about an hour and half away. There are horse farms for good riding and trails for walking throughout the area. Being close to New York City is a real asset. Well known tourist attractions include The Metropolitan Museum, The Frick Museum, The Museum of Modern Art, The Guggenheim, The Whitney Museum, The Cloisters (medieval art, including the Unicorn Tapestries), the American Museum of Natural History, the Bronx Botanical Garden and the Bronx Zoo.
Our location might work best, as compared to Manhattan, for those who would like to intersperse visits to the City ((for sightseeing, shopping, museums, musicals or plays (at any given time there are 60-80 plays or musicals to choose from), concerts (Avery Fisher Hall, Carnegie Hall), opera (The Metropolitan Opera), ballet (New York City Ballet, The American Ballet Company), modern dance, galleries, restaurants (ethnic food form virtually every country in the world), nightlife, etc.)) with days relaxing in the country. Tickets to all performances can be purchased online and picked up at the box office at the time of the performance.
To avoid the sometime heavy traffic and the parking in the City, we usually drive to the local railroad station (New Canaan) and take the train. Once in the City, public transportation is very efficient. Train schedule is available online (Metro North, New Haven line).
Much as we enjoy New York, we are always happy to return to our peaceful place in the country, and we hope you will enjoy it here also.
Two of the bedrooms have a queen sized bed. The third (very large) bedroom has a queen and a single bed. The fourth bedroom is quite small and has a single bed. The living room has a HD flat screen television, stereo system, DVD etc. Two of the bedroom also have TV?s. A Roku streaming player is attached to the TV for streaming movies (Netflix, Amazon, Hulu+, or tunein radio).There are two laptop computers with high speed wireless internet access.
