"Interesting name, nice road"

Loose Strife Road is a very small cul-de-sac in East Fishkill; despite being short in length, it has six houses on it.

You won't have to spend much time on this street to know that there's no strife around here. Generally speaking, the houses are big, the lawns are big, and the cars are nice (most of them, anyway). This is backed up by the estimated home values, almost all of which are in the $400-500k range, which is pretty steep for most people, but sometimes if you want quality, you have to pay for it. This neighborhood, which I figure is close-knit seeing as they're six homes on their own out here, delivers on quality, but also has several other things going for it.

This road is only a few minutes out of Hopewell Junction, the nearest village which offers some shopping (including groceries) and a decent variety of restaurants, as well as other local businesses such as nail salons, laundromats, bakeries, and so forth. Schools are close to here as well. There's also a great park a little to the north (and one with a beach a little further than that), as well as several golf courses and/or driving ranges near here, so you have some things nearby for sure. What you won't have is a ton of nightlife -- perhaps a little up in Hopewell -- hospitals or major stores. You'll have to do some driving to get to either one but plenty of locals do it, so it can't be all bad.

This really is a peaceful little street; obviously it gets no traffic because nobody needs to pass through it, but as for Route 376 which is right here, that'll get some activity. Arbor Ridge catering hall is within walking distance, and when they're throwing parties/weddings or anything else, you know. (That's about the extent of the local nightlife, anyway.) I doubt you can hear it from here, but it gets busy in the immediate area. While it is generally quiet, 376 is a main road in this region so you'll have to adjust.

You could certainly make do living on this street, though many won't find it affordable. Keep in mind that home values have fallen all over the county, so it's likely that these were worth possibly hundreds of thousands more five years ago. None are on sale right now, anyway, but if you're looking for a home that's a step up and something comes available here, it might be worth a look.
