Orange County is just so much more affordable than the nearby Rockland County or homes across the Hudson River. In 2014, there were 147 homes sold in New Windsor, at a median sales price of $231,250. Even for new construction homes in New Windsor, you will find townhouses starting at less than $300,000, and with most of the single detached homes between $300,000 - $500,000.
The Reserve at New Windsor is a large development of 375 single family homes. The homes are built by Millenium Builders. The development is not exactly new, with some of the homes being built starting around 2002. Most of the homes are on 1/2 acre to 1 acre lots.
The setting of the development is quite pretty, offering some of the homes with mountain views. And this development is zoned for the Cornwall School District.
New Construction Homes in New Windsor at the Reserve
I toured the model home and talked to the sales agent. The homes start at around $350,000, but that model is under 2000 square feet. Realistically, most of the buyers will choose homes closer to the $400,000 price range or higher, and at a larger square footage.
For example, the model home, the Carrington style, has 2612 square feet, and an option to add a sitting room in the master bedroom. That home model features 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, a formal dining, living, and sitting room with a fireplace, and an officer area when you walk into the home.
According to the agent, they have had a very busy winter, with 9 homes being sold during the last 3 snowy months. There are about 10-11 lots still available.
