map of rouken glenRouken Glen was the name given to a prestigious area in Larchmont, 10538 where  Mr. C.W. Moody, a famous builder  planned the ‘harmonious development’ in the 1930’s  with views (at the time) of the Long Island Sound. As it was being built, the area was described as ‘beautiful views,  quiet wood roads, bridle paths, lakes , wooded rocky slopes and the homes to feature gas, electric light and telephone service! Oh my electric light!rouken glen

There were to be built some 90 homes and they were going to range in cost from $25,000 to $125,000 with a selection of  architectural designs to choose from. The original sales information also cites the following ” The Glen is fortunate in its proximity to a modern, well equipped school.

In 1938, one of the homes on Sheldrake Drive, Rouken Glen was mentioned in the Daily Argus, as being ‘one of nine county residences as being singled out for special recognition’  in the second annual ” Portfolio of 30 Distinguished Homes”  in the February edition of the House and Garden Magazine.

The homes in Rouken Glen are still singled out for special recognition, and their architectural elegance reflect the foresight of Mr. Moody so many years ago. Nowadays,  prices range from anywhere from One Million + to over $2 Million.

Larchmont, a wonderful place in which to reside!

Larchmont is GREAT!
