I enter your criteria in realtor.com and it shows that there are 358 houses that fit it. Granted, not all would be in move-in condition or on quiet roads, but there must be at least a few out of those 358 that would satisfy you.

Also, to say Vernon is more urban than Middletown is ridiculous.

Ridiculous? It's a fact. Vernon has a population density of 1700 people per square mile. Compare that with Middletown, which only has about 1200 per square mile. Middletown is a much larger town than Vernon, and believe it or not, has vast rural areas in the southern section of town. Just because it has a walkable downtown with brick buildings and restaurants doesn't mean it's more urban than Vernon. For that matter, we could say that New Hartford (which has a nice walkable downtown with buildings) is more urban than say, Granby.

What do you all think of this one? It seems to be in a nice country setting and in good shape. Middlefield has a charming rural setting, yet it's near highways and centralized.

Sioux Rd. is in the Lake Beseck area. The developed area immediately around the lake where this home is consists of small homes, may converted cottages and many summer cottages, all on small lots. Much of it is very hilly with narrow streets. Some of the homes are well kept, some are not. You may find it tight and too built up for your taste.

But who knows- go drive through and see if it suits you.

Again, why you continue to look online without consulting a realtor is beyond me. Viewing them online only tells about 25% of the story.

Nice ranch home IN Berlin, 174K, good kitchen and a mostly finished family room addition off the back that you can work on to finish over the years and increase property value significantly. (Needs drywall, paint and carpet. That's it.)

Side street, nice yard, quiet neighborhood.

About the only thing it needs from the pictures is paint work.

Here is another 2 bed recently updated.

Done.

What difference does that really make when you can't afford to live in the "vast rural areas"?? None.

Yes but a large part of Middletown is the Connecticut Valley Hospital and reservoir watershed property so if these remote areas were removed from the equation you would see an increase in density much closer to Vernon, maybe even higher. Jay
