"Homes in the forest"

Old North Anson Way is a road with a little bit of a strange configuration on a map, but it nevertheless is a residential side road (or network of them, really) in the Town of Stanford, south of Stanfordville hamlet.

From above, you might not be able to spot a lot of the houses here, because this neighborhood is surrounded by trees. When you do go down this road, which doesn't really even stand out when driving past it, you will find those houses, which aren't many in number but tend to be quite a lot in cost. These properties tend to be spread out a little bit, so you're right on top of your neighbors, but chances are you've got an expensive house. Unless I've missed some in my research, they're all at least 2,000 square feet, with some much more. A few have quite a bit of land, and we're talking more than a dozen acres. This has driven some property value estimates up to nearly $700,000, though a couple on and around this road are in the mid to upper $300k range. Of course, there are also large houses in this general neighborhood which are worth over a million bucks. All of the houses are pretty nice, with some pools and even tennis courts around.

Getting to know your neighbors won't be impossible around here, but you won't have too many names to remember. I'm sure it's a perfectly nice neighborhood with good folks living here, but an active neighborhood this is not. This is a quiet country neighborhood in the trees.

This is a very nice area of town and it's quite green (though most of Stanford is), but also like the vast majority of Stanford, there's not much to do around here. Aside from outdoor recreation which is quite prevalent in this part of Dutchess County, you're cut off from good variety in restaurants, school options, virtually any kind of shopping, gyms, and most other things that people take for granted in suburban locales like Poughkeepsie.

It seems like Old North Anson is the sort of place you'd want to live if you (a) have money and (b) want to get away from it all. You certainly wouldn't live here if you wanted to be close to modern conveniences.
