"Small and pleasant"

Thurston Lane in Hyde Park is a very short dead-end road which runs parallel to Crum Elbow Road. It's a green neighborhood in a green area of Hyde Park.

This road doesn't have a lot of homes on it because of its size, but you're likely going to have neighbors across the street from you and behind you and on both sides. The homes aren't that far apart, and this seems to be to be a quieter, more cozy little cul-de-sac. These residences are about average in size and appearance -- nothing overly fancy and nothing extraordinarily modest. Some have swimming pools and some don't, and some have garages while some don't. Home values on this street are a bit more affordable than I might have expected, with several valued at under $200,000. A home recently sold on this block for under $150,000, so it's definitely possible to find (relatively) inexpensive housing in this neighborhood -- this could also be a symptom of the general housing market.

In this area of Hyde Park, there are only a few amenities within a couple minutes' drive. A gas station, a pharmacy, parks, and some doctor's offices are close, with a few restaurants, schools, and small shops and bars a few minutes further. It is not horribly far from most things that a person needs, but you're not five minutes from the biggest local hangouts or shopping malls, either. This is a less active neighborhood that does have enough residences, but not so many businesses. In being a quiet area, it's also a bit dull, which is the trade-off you'll sometimes find.

Traffic on Crum Elbow Road generally isn't bad, and it's non-existent on Thurston. It's a cul-de-sac after all. Passing cars and outdoor commotion aren't going to bother you here. Neither is crime, as Hyde Park is a very low-crime town.

It's not terribly expensive to live in this neighborhood, relative to some other places in Dutchess County. If you live here, you'll have a small but reasonably nice neighborhood with some nearby benefits but not many, but a good deal of peace and quiet.
