"Another rural driveway-type road"

Haight Hollow Way, like so many other residential side roads around here, is a short dead-end street. This one is in the Town of Stanford, between the hamlet of Stanfordville and the Town of Pine Plains.

Haight Hollow Road is kind of easy to miss: the entry to the road has a lot of trees around and is so narrow that if you didn't see a sign, you wouldn't know that it was an actual street. It's all trees and houses, though a lot more trees than homes; the map indicates that the road ends at a certain point, but it seems to carry on as a dirt road for a few hundred more feet, upon which a couple more houses lie.

Dirt road or not, the houses here are a little bit on the bigger end of average and some are a little less affordable. Sure, you'll find a couple of the less than a dozen homes here at about $250,000, but others go well above $300,000. None go above $400k, so they're not horribly expensive or anything like that, but they'll cost a little more than in some other areas of town (though there are other areas of Stanford where properties cost 7 or 8-digit numbers, so consider yourself lucky).

It's got a decent neighborhood feel, though it doesn't resemble a suburban neighborhood at all. No densely-packed houses, no sidewalks, no area full of houses. There are only a few homes around here so there's not much to look at.

This area is pretty well cut off from a lot of things that most suburbanites and urban dwellers take for granted, such as restaurants, bars, stores (food shopping and big-box retail), and much more. Such is the problem with living in an unpopulated area, and you're going to be miles and miles away from the nearest towns and cities of note where you can actually get some things done. It's a good thing online shopping exists, but that doesn't really help solve too many problems.

As I've noted a number of times when evaluating Stanford neighborhoods, you've got a great deal of scenery locally and Haight Hollow Way, like lots of other streets in this town, is green, calm, and peaceful. What's great about this area is the outdoor recreation: the Buttercup Preserve and Stissing Mountain Multiple Use Area are close-by and ready to indulge you for hiking, picnicking, and more.

The houses here are decent and the neighborhood is about as safe as you'd expect, it's just a thinly-populated neighborhood in an isolated area.
