"Part of a rural housing development"

Washington Court is a very small side-street in the Town of Pawling, which is part of one of the few housing developments in town at King's Way (I don't know if that's what it's called officially, but that's the main street). Washington Court is very close to the entrance of this development from Dutchess County Route 20 and actually looks more like a long parking lot than a street, but it has a name, so it's a street.

On this very short road appear to be condos, some of which run for under $200,000 and others over $200,000, but virtually none are above $300,000. They appear from the outside to be in very good shape, as everything around here is relatively new. Housing developments have not really blown up in Pawling as of yet -- the neighboring town of Beekman is just starting to see more of them in recent years, so they're probably coming soon -- so this is one of the most identifiable in town. The parking situation around here appears to be acceptable; there seem to be some open spots usually, and there's street-side parking evidently available up the block, so you won't be in too bad of shape.

In a closely-packed neighborhood like this, you'd think that neighborhood spirit runs relatively high. Not just in your condo complex, but in the others around you, as well as the houses around here (of which there are about as many as condos).

In this part of town, despite the development, it's still very green and undisturbed otherwise. Washington Court is in a quiet and green neighborhood, it isn't far from some ponds, and nearby there is a place called Mistover, which trains and boards horses. If you leave the development and get on the main road, you'll have to drive for a mile or two before you see anything, namely Pawling village. It's not exactly as busy and full of local businesses as Poughkeepsie and Wappingers Falls, but there are a few eating and shopping options (but not mall shopping). The Pawling schools are generally regarded as being good, and many are within about ten minutes or so of here, but what you can find several of in the vicinity are parks, both local and state. Eastern Dutchess County is more of an outdoor recreation type of area, since there aren't a lot of local businesses here (relative to the western side by the river), and though this development isn't that far from a village, that doesn't really change much. Another plus is that the Metro North train line to New York City is only a short drive from here.

This is probably amongst the nicer places to live in Pawling, and certainly affordable. If you're the type who is seeking a condo, there may be a few available on Washington.
