The proliferation of remote work has enticed thousands of New Yorkers to take up residence in resort communities that offer a slower pace of life and ample opportunities for outdoor recreation.
Oak Ridge, a collection of heritage-inspired and custom-built single-family homes, is located in Saratoga Springs proper — a year-round destination featuring natural springs, a renowned thoroughbred racecourse and historic downtown.
The quality-built homes at Oak Ridge are designed to suit the needs of even the most discerning buyers. Choose from either the Heritage Collection, elegantly appointed homes with move-in dates as early as this spring, or work alongside Beechwood Homes to craft a custom home built to your specifications.
The Heritage Collection reflects a variety of architectural styles, from Colonial Revival to Modern Farmhouse. Currently, there are six uniquely-designed homes for sale, priced from $1.1 million. These spacious, light-filled residences include four bedrooms, two to four bathrooms, two-car garages and up to 4,397 square feet of living space.
The homes boast thoughtful features such as first-floor guest suites, secluded studies, practical mudrooms and covered porches. Kitchens come complete with oversized islands with breakfast bar seating and reach-in pantries with plenty of storage space. Meanwhile, the master bedrooms are appointed with dual walk-in closets and spa-like ensuites featuring freestanding soaking tubs, frameless glass showers, double-sink vanities and separate toilets.
Spanning 135 acres, Oak Ridge is one of the last pieces of undeveloped property in Saratoga Springs proper and is surrounded by pristine, natural landscapes. A gazebo and fountain sit at the center of the neighborhood and mature trees provide a lush canopy.
Whether you choose to call Saratoga Springs home year-round or seasonally, the city offers vibrant culture, outdoor adventure and easy accessibility. Its mineral-rich, carbonated springs are ideal for drinking or soaking, with several nearby spas offering hydrotherapy treatments. The Saratoga Race Course and Saratoga Performing Arts Center are other well-known attractions, hosting special events and annual festivals.
The Historic Downtown District is dotted with stylish boutiques, contemporary art galleries, must-try restaurants and upscale taverns. Those who prefer hitting the links have several golf clubs to choose from, some located within five minutes of Oak Ridge.
Saratoga Springs is a two-hour train ride from Manhattan and a half-hour drive from Albany International Airport. Montreal and Boston are each three hours away, providing opportunities for the perfect weekend getaway.
