"Not much of a road if I do say so myself"

Beckwith Place is a very short residential side street (dead-end) in Stanford, close to Milan and Pine Plains and not far from main road Route 82. Despite its tiny length, it does have a few buildings upon it.

Beckwith is not much to look at; the road is paved, but this is no typical side road. It'll take about ten seconds to get from one end to the other going slowly, but you will see several buildings there, a few of which appear to be homes. I know at least one is, and its value is pretty affordable, about $200,000. The rest of it appears to be part of a business or a farm, with lots of cars out front (at least when I saw it). In fact, there were a lot of cars on this road in general, which seemed kind of curious seeing as how little there is around here. This is barely a residential neighborhood and it's not the prettiest one, either -- it's just kind of drab.

You're not really that close to Pine Plains around here, which is the nearest settlement of any size. Stanfordville is closer but there is even less to do there. If you are the lucky homeowner on this street, you're going to be pretty far away from lots of things. Pine Plains to the north has some very limited food shopping, few restaurants, at least a few schools, no gyms to my knowledge, no access to public transportation, and no medical facilities of note except for a small clinic or two. You're kind of on your own out here.

What this area around Beckwith Place does have is plenty of outdoor recreation. Just minutes away by car are the Buttercup Preserve and Stissing Mountain Multiple Use Area. There are also a couple of county parks and more state multiple use areas to the north, and this area is pretty big on hunting and fishing clubs, which you should be able to find relatively nearby. Finally, you've also got the Wappinger Creek very close to this particular road, and if you've got a fishing license, you can drop a line (though the creek is kind of low these days).

This is a really great part of the county to live in general if you like being close to the outdoors. The problems with the area are that you've got just about nothing else nearby, there are just about no home availabilities on this road, and even if you get one, you won't have much land. It's kind of a boring place to live.
