No one can argue that construction is booming in Scarsdale. Take a walk, a bike ride or drive around town and everywhere you turn there are cyclone fences surrounding building sites, foundations being poured, framing underway and TYVEK on view. Some homes are being built on spec by developers while others are custom projects for pre-designated buyers. But there's another type of development going on in town as well. ELK Homes is buying up properties in Westchester and Connecticut, renovating or rebuilding them and putting them on the rental market. That's the case with an expansive new home going up at 207 Fox Meadow Road where a split level home is being turned into a 7 bedroom, 6.5 bath home that will be available in July at $17,500 per month.
ELK is not new to Scarsdale where they own about 10 homes that they rent out for short or long term rentals. Gary Hirsch, Chairman of ELK explained that there is a good market for luxury rental homes with 24-hour property management services. The homes are rented by people who relocate for jobs, those who want to try out the suburbs, folks whose homes are being renovated and others who don't want to commit to buying. According to Hirsch, there is demand for "special" homes and the company has high occupancy rates.
What other homes do they own in Scarsdale? Their website shows that 59 Fayette Road is currently under construction as well as 96 Garden Road. Additional ELK homes for rent include 8 Lebanon Road, 9 Longview Drive, newly renovated and expanded homes at 23 and 31 Wynmor Roads and 20 Old Lyme Road which is available for rent at $13,000 a month.
