About Jeffersonville, NY real estate
Jeffersonville, New York is located in the west-northwest region of Sullivan County, about 2:30 from New York City. The little village, set admist hills rising on both sides, is in the hub of the farmland areas of west county and also close to the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts.
While Jeffersonville is home to a number of quaint shops like Global Home and The Rustic Cottage, the layout of Main Street doesn’t lend itself to the the same strolling character you find in Narrowsburg or Callicoon. For restaurants, Samba is a convenient coffee stop, with a Brazilian/Latin tilt for lunch and dinner, while Ted’s Restaurant on Main Street is the spot to pick up local gossip. Because it doesn’t have have as much of a ‘strolling’ ambiance, Jeffersonville hasn’t attracted as much ‘country cute’ retail and dining as some other villages and hamlets, and has retained a more original country village feel.
Jeffersonville is also home to WJFF 90.5, our public/community radio station, which sits on the edge Lake Jefferson, just east of the village.
West of Jeffersonville between Jeff and Callicoon lies the Beechwoods, a few square miles of picturesque rolling farmland, very Norman Rockwell with lovely views. The Beechwoods is arguably the prime location in the county for folks looking for a farm-style getaway. There are seldom many homes on the market here, particularly with the panoramic western views that make the Beechwoods so special. The Villa Roma Resort is also in this area, with an 18 hole golf course open for public play and the best gym in the county, with day passes as well as short and long term memberships available.
There are many other rolling farmland areas towards North Branch, Youngsville, over towards Kenoza Lake and down towards Cochecton.
This is not a lake part of the county, but Kenoza Lake, which is about halfway between Jeffersonville and Bethel Woods, is a smaller, upper end, non-motor lake development. Lake Jefferson at the eastern edge of the village is a shallower non-motor lake with some shoreline houses, but is better for fishing and canoeing than swimming.
In its day, Jeffersonville was one of the wealthiest villages in the county, and was the home of many of the west county lumber barons, bankers, doctors and lawyers. As a result, Jerffersonville has some of the finest examples of large, in-town Victorians in the area, many with finely detailed woodworking and even stained glass windows.
