Certainly you have plenty of choices in Westchester if you really are looking at 1 hour door to door. If you are willing to go further North you will find more space inside your unit as well common area, yard, etc. The drawback would be if you are in lower Westchester now, how would if affect your non-work lifestyle? Meaning is having some extra sqft and ammenities more important than being a bit closer to your friends, family,etc?
If not then certaintly areas in my part of Westchester (Rye, Rye Brook, Harrison, Mamaroneck,etc) would probally fit the bill. As one person mentioned the Arbors is a townhouse complex mid 400's would get yo a 2 BR 1.5 Bath and approx 1200 sqft. The complex features 2 tennis courts, pool, small "gym" and party room (I lived there for a few years myself) Taxes are a bit higher in the complex, and since monthly costs are usually the largest factor in amount you will spend on a home, they need to be considered.

This building consists of 20 units and there is 1 unit left. It is a 2 Bedroom 1 Bath and is brand new. Hardwood floors, great kitchen with Granite and Stainless Steel appliances, Indoor and Outdoor parking, 120 sqft patio and just 4 blocks to train. Best part maybe that even in this changing market, the building is one unit away from being sold out!
