Yorktown Real Estate

Yorktown, first established in the early 1940s, has a rich history of great pride and planning that insured it remained a suburban haven of single-family homes with generous lots set amidst peaceful natural surroundings. The earliest homes built in Yorktown reflected the popular English Tudor, English Cottage and Colonial Revival styles at that time. Over the years Art Moderne and Ranch Rambler styles have joined the neighborhood landscape.

In many respects, Yorktown has changed little over decades since it was first established. Filled with mature trees and meandering streams, it still has wooded areas and a wide variety of wildlife including foxes, pileated woodpeckers, and other wildlife. It is a neighborhood in which people truly enjoy everyday life.
