Luckily, a club membership isn’t required in this neighborhood – everyone is welcome in Country Club, a waterfront community on the eastern coast of the Bronx. With the beach just steps away, living in this neighborhood offers a quick change of scenery from the hustle and bustle of New York City.
Pelham Bay Park is undoubtedly the crowning jewel of the neighborhood. With more than 2,700 acres of open land, it’s the largest park in the city, with plenty of pathways and green spaces for jogging and cycling. New Yorkers from all over come here to enjoy the only public beach in the Bronx.
The housing stock is quite diverse, offering an excellent mix of single-family homes, duplexes, and multi-family homes. Many of these are post-war homes with stunning red brick exteriors and manicured hedges.
Some of the larger homes can be found on Stadium Avenue, but the most coveted properties are located along Eastchester Bay, offering views of the water. Prevalent architectural styles include Tudor, Mid-Century Modern, and Stucco.
The commercial strip, Layton Avenue, has a supermarket, laundromat, dry cleaner, and pizzeria.
Country Club residents usually get around by car, but there are public transit options, including the local Bx24 bus, which makes passes through the neighborhood before stopping at the number 6 train, and the BxM8, which plies the western border and makes trips to Midtown Manhattan.
Its proximity to Pelham Bay Park and the Eastchester Bay shoreline makes this neighborhood one of the most sought-after communities in the Bronx. Those who live here come home to a quiet and tranquil environment where they can recharge after the long work week. With well-maintained homes and plenty of greenery, it’s as close as you can get to suburbia in the boroughs. If you enjoy having access to green spaces and a well-maintained beach without sacrificing space, Country Club is worth considering.
