Niles,

I lived there many years ago and today as a realtor, I've sold more cottages there in the past several years than anyone. I'd be happy to give you a private tour of how it works and all the minutia details.

There is a great deal of variety in the condos in Laurel Park as it was a seasonal community in the 1900's. Some have been completely redone and other need work. They usually do not have basements or garages and they share septic systems. They are not to fear from town but not walking distance, however great coop is close as well as other shops on King st. Hope this helps

Northampton area is a great place to retire, culturally can't be beat for small town feel, affordability yet diverse educated population. Laurel Park is unique but not for everyone. If you have any other questions feel free to email or call.

Thanks very much for your reply, Carolyn ~ I really appreciate it. I'm considering a move to NOHO, as I can't afford to retire in San Francisco where I've over 20 years! WInters don't frighten me, as I'm a native upstate New Yorker & went to school in Lenox MA for 4 years.

Hi Niles. This close-knit community is located approximately 3.5 miles from Main St, Northampton. This is not to say that it is removed from what is going on. It's actually right near the local co-op, major retailers, and offers very convenient access to Rt 91. The location and price point make it worth taking a look. Also, they're free-standing condos so there are no shared walls between neighbors. Be in touch if you'd like to take a look. Glad to help.
