The name has got to go! It’s way to similar to evergreen estates which is located about 2 min drive away. Just imagine this.
Person 1:”Hey I’m going to visit some friends in evergreen”
Person 2: “which evergreen?”
Point made.

This is all very nice, but who has money for a summer home? I keep reading article after article about how we can’t pay for our children’s school tuition. And sleep away camp is also very expensive. I would love a summer home, but I have to go to work everyday. Maybe these homes will be rented out to people like me who can’t afford a home of my own and would love to take a week off in the summer in the mountains. I’m not jealous. I understand my position and thank G-d I have a job (I’m a… Read more »

They call it “Evergreen” because it’s right down the road from evergreen, and circle because it’s located in “Inner Circle” (the white houses you see in the picture are “Inner Circle” houses.

Why so many negative comments?

Wondering What about this articles brings out peoples negativity? The price seems decent to me. I’m sure some people can afford and some can’t. Like everything in life. Be happy with what you have and Hashem gives you and be happy for others.

for all those commenting out there about how expensive everything is and who can afford a summer home, believe it or not there are families in Crown Heights who have a LOT of $ and who can afford it! it’s nobodies business who pays tuition or not. Hashem is the one who decides who will be rich and who will be poor! So if you are not the lucky rich ones, then just be happy for those who are and daven to Hashem to help you;)

Maybe this can help the housing problem in crown heights.
Why not move there, and have a large house for an amazing price compared to brooklyn.

I think people are just frustrated with reading about how many people cannot pay full tuition. The frustration comes in if the people who are buying these summer homes are complaining about tuition. That is fantastic that there are so many families who can afford these houses. But if they are buying these houses and then asking for a break on tution, that’s not okay.

Moving there
Guest
Moving there

Because if we all moved there then before you know it, the market will be driven up, and upstate will be the new Brooklyn.

Might be a good solution

Might be a good solution

This might actually be a good solution for a family with modest income that wants to stay in CH but can’t afford a million dollar home. You can stay in your small apartment year round but at least you have a nice retreat to fall back on whenever you need a break, that is not too far from the city. You can also rent it out to families on a weekly or monthly basis. I think this has great potential!

it definitely is not a bungalow , it’s a very nice home in the country. Why call it a bungalow? Very upscale from the bungalow I remember as a child with Bubbe in Loch Sheldrake !!!!
