In first 2 weeks, Dalton Farm takes eight reservations.

Round Hill - Dalton Farm's latest single-family neighborhood - opened to rave reviews as eight of its 19 homes were reserved in the first two weeks of sales.

This notable success comes on the heels of the virtual sellout of the 18-home Pondwood neighborhood within four months of its June opening, according to the developers of the 558-acre planned housing community rising on the grounds of an historic estate in this Dutchess County town.

Buyers from Westchester, Manhattan and Connecticut have been drawn to Round Hill's elegant two-story residences and an original one-story plan introduced last month, reports Anne Dalton, a principal of L.M. Dalton Corp., which is developing the community of single-family houses and townhomes.

"The continued success of our single-family homes is truly remarkable, considering today's sluggish market," said Dalton. "It is also proving that we were right on target in calculating that exciting floorplans, luxurious amenities and affordable prices would attract considerable buyer interest even during tough economic times.

The new residences of Round Hill - currently priced from $239,800 - offer the added excitement of a dramatic hillside location that provides some of the best views on the site, said Dalton. The hilly terrain also allows for walkout basements which open onto private backyard patios.

Round Hill is situated on the highest ground in the community," noted Dalton. "Homeowners can literally see for miles, with spectacular views of trees, hills and Storm King Mountain."

Round Hill's two-story plans range in size from 1,900 to 3,000 square feet of living space geared for family living. An open kitchen, family room and breakfast nook create an exciting, sunny and spacious area with exceptional views that are perfect for daily living and informal entertaining. Traditional dining and living rooms accommodate more formal uses.

The new one-storey design was added to meet the needs of buyers who are not attracted to multi-level living, yet still desire the privacy and spaciousness of a detached home, noted Dalton. The country kitchen in the 2,072-square-foot, three-bedroom home is unusually spacious and comfortable, she adds, and includes a large working kitchen with an island for food preparation and serving, a walk-in pantry and a laundry.

To date, 65 single-family houses and townhomes have been sold at Dalton Farm, and more than 50 families have moved in. A new townhouse neighborhood - The Village - opened this summer and currently has 16 residences available for sale at prices ranging from $148,600 to $198,000.
