A Commuters Dream -Circleville NY

Real Estate Agent with Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty
Circleville is a little gem of a village in the Town of Wallkill in Orange County NY.  It was first settled in the 1790's by one lone settler.  A famous early resident was Samuel Bull, a blacksmith who is said to have help forge the chain that was used to blockade the Hudson River during the Revolutionary War. The name of the village was proposed by Mrs. Mary Bull who liked the name of the town Circleville in Ohio she had heard of.  The local post office was established in 1850.  

Circleville is located just of Route 17 (future I-86) at exit 119.  It is about 65 miles to New York City.  The village center has a post office and several shops including a deli, resturant, bank, pizza place/bar, and a paint your own ceramic shop. Circleville Park has pavillions for picnicing, sports fields, a playground, and a lake for fishing and swimming.   The Boys and Girls Club of Town of Wallkill run a summer day camp there and also have many year round programs for youth.  Three of the six schools in the Pine Bush School District  are located in Circleville (Circleville Elementary, Pakanasink Elementary, and Circleville Middle School.)  It is near to the small city of Middletown for the shopping, entertainment, and mass transit options available there.

Houses in the area are located on small village lots or, as you move away from the center of the village, larger more rural parcels.  The current listings in the Circleville area range from $180,000 - $470,000.

Paddy, Nice localism post... I have been through north, central and western NY state, and it is really beautiful country. I hate to say it, but most people equate NY with NYC... Huge difference in mind-set and culture...

It's a really big state Michael and to think of it all as NYC discounts a lot of beautiful places We are located far enough away from NY to be quite but close enough to go when we want to. Thanks for stopping by.
