"Modest homes, small road, big neighborhood"

Estelle Road in the City of Poughkeepsie is a very short one; it's the sort of road where you might go from end to end and not even realize it. It's maybe about 250 feet long, and there are only about six houses or so on it. Nevertheless, it's part of a larger neighborhood with plenty of spirit.

This part of the city is quite nice, and features some Victorian homes, plenty of greenery, and other older buildings as landmarks. Estelle Road has the trees, but not the Victorian houses or landmarks. What dwellings are here are relatively modest but not of bad quality. Home values for this neighborhood run in the low to mid $200k range, which is fairly affordable all things considered. Just about all of the homes appear to have driveways so parking would not appear to be an issue, but streets around here do tend to allow parallel street parking as well.

Having been in this neighborhood a number of times before, I know it's quite possible to get to know the neighbors because the houses are packed in more densely and the streets have sidewalks to facilitate foot travel. Some streets around here have had block parties in the past; there might not be enough people living on Estelle to pull that off, but it's not like this road is an island: there are streets all around, and those houses are also close to here.

The City of Poughkeepsie in this surrounding area offers plenty to do and you're not very far from restaurants, decent schools, city parks, the hospitals, the malls, or anything else. Public transportation does exist in the area but having a car is almost an afterthought around here; everybody does.

It's a city, so it's not going to be like living in the middle of nowhere in Amenia or somewhere else, but this is a little bit off of the main roads so living here won't be a particularly bothersome experience, either. It's a safe neighborhood and a relatively pleasant one, in one of the best parts of Poughkeepsie to live.
