Briarcliff

The Village of Briarcliff Manor is located in northern Westchester along the Hudson River. A part of the original Philipsburg Manor, it grew into two separate hamlets; Scarborough and Whitson’s Corner, which later became known as the Village of Briarcliff. This rustic, residential environment is within easy commuting distance to Manhattan.

The Village’s Central Business District is a quaint, tree-lined commercial area offering charming shops, restaurants and convenient services. With brick sidewalks, free parking and period street lighting, the area is one of the most desirable in the region.

One of the proudest accomplishments of the Village of Briarcliff Manor has been its ability to carefully and creatively balance development with the preservation of open space and the Village’s historic character. In fact, the Village itself owns and maintains over 172 acres of active and passive parkland.

Briarcliff has retained its friendly atmosphere as it continues to grow into one of Westchester’s most sought after communities. The village offers a variety of housing options-turn-of-the-century estates with dramatic river views, classic center hall colonials, contemporaries, new construction and condominiums can all be found.
