Spotlight on Scotchtown NY- A Great Place to Live

Real Estate Agent with Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty
Just outside of Middletown in the town of Wallkill is an area known as Scotchtown.  This area was originally settled by Scottish peoples in the late 1700's and has grown up with the name from that time. And grown it has, into a suburban development location with a population of 8,954 in the 2000 census.  Here you will find neighborhoods of homes on 1/3 to 3/4 acre lots, townhouse developments, garden apartment complexes, and some homes on larger parcels scattered about.  Minutes from the Wallkill/Middletown shopping areas on Route 211 with great access to Route 17 (future I-86) and the Middletown area train station, it is only 55 miles to New York City making it a  great location for commuters to look for a place to live.  Many of "New York's Finest"from the Police and Fire Departments find their homes in this area.

The children from the Scotchtown area attend either Pine Bush Central School District or Middletown School District schools.  There is a large rec field complex where some of the Town of Wallkill recreational sports programs take place.  Children have access to many opportunities including very active Boys and Girls Club , 4-H, and Boy and Girl Scouting in addition to taking advantage of all the recreation and entertainment opportunities that the City of Middletown has to offer.

In June of 2008 the current prices for townhouses in the area start in the $150,000 range.  Houses located in one of the several suburban developments are going for between $230,000 and $350,000.  Homes on larger lots are priced from $300,000 up to $500,000.

There are options here in the Greater Hudson Valley of NY to meet everyone's needs.  We have urban, suburban, village and rural locations that can provide you with the perfect blend of country for you.  Working with an experienced buyer's agent can help you to choose what is best for you.  If you are looking for a home in Orange, Ulster, or Sullivan County NY I would love to be your Buyer's Agent.  If you are looking elsewhere I would love to find someone in your chosen location to help you.  Give me a call or send an email today.
