Buying a House in Dutchess County NY - Do you need Privacy? Part 3

Buying a House in Dutchess County  NY - Do you need Privacy?  Part 3

One popular request from buyers looking for a house in Dutchess County is for privacy. Finding privacy does not mean you are limited to just certain areas of the County; instead privacy can be found in Southern Dutchess as well as Northern Dutchess.House

Where you decide to get the privacy will depends on what you are trying to achieve. 

  • Do you want the feeling of living in the country with lots of open space?
  • Maybe you want a private older or historic home.  What you need to know is that many of the older homes are close to the road because this was a necessity for the time period in which they were built. Yes, you would just hitch up the horse and buggy.  So, if you desire an older home and have the need for privacy you might have to look in a more rural area, where it is less populated and there is less traffic.
  • Achieving the privacy you need could mean purchasing a large parcel of land.  Most of the time this is really the request.  In some areas of the county the acreage will be more expensive, so here again the privacy you get could be determined by the pocketbook.
  • For some, privacy might be achieved by finding a property with just a few acres and there are many such communities with 3 plus acre zoning.

So, once again, you should do a needs assessment with your real estate agent to determine what privacy really means to you.

Working with an agent who is knowledgeable about Dutchess County will be a necessary factor to achieving your goal.
