The downtown business district includes a small hamlet of older properties also known as "Cairo" located near the heart of this historic enclave. It offers opportunities for entrepreneurs. Cairo occupies a choice location just 45 minutes outside Albany, 2.5 hours outside New York City, and 3 hours outside Boston. Residents can find large retail outlets in Hudson, just a 20-minute drive away.
Tracing its origins all the way back to 1772, the town today boasts a population of over 6,600 people scattered across a nearly 60 square mile area. New residents sometimes discover exciting affordable real estate values in this location! Many historic homes and large vintage dwellings remain here, including some hobby farm and horse properties. Homes usually supply generous yards, and quite a few boast mature landscaping and scenic Catskill Mountain views. During recent years, builders have also constructed a number of modern modestly priced single family homes. The small town atmosphere of this quiet rural community has contributed to plentiful open spaces and available wooded lots.
Popular attractions in the Cairo Area include recreational opportunities in the adjoining Catskill Mountains. This region has become a popular resort location. Residents can ski at Windham Mountain and Hunter Mountain, camp at North/South Lake or Devils Tombstone, picnic at Mine Kill State Park, and take scenic Hudson Valley river cruises to admire the colorful changing autumn foliage. History buffs appreciate Cairo's close proximity to the Kinderhook Estate of President Martin Van Buren. Every year, the nearby Bronck Museum sponsors a well-attended rural crafts fair.
Finding a Home in the Cairo Area
Median single family home values in Cairo and outlying areas remain roughly half the median price of residential properties in New York City. People relocating to the vicinity can still locate affordable homes. Residential properties in this area fill a broad spectrum, ranging from dwellings priced well below $100,000 to multi-million dollar estates. The Murphy Realty Group assists clients interested in buying, selling, or renting homes in Cairo and outlying areas.
Discover a Peaceful Cairo Lifestyle!
When you relocate to the Cairo area, you'll discover many opportunities to enjoy a quiet rural or small town New York lifestyle. The downtown area promotes a vintage "Americana" motif. In the late 1990s, the Town of Cairo invested in new infrastructure facilities, including a new sewer system. It currently plans some upgrades to the public water system, as well as several other municipal infrastructure improvements.
A number of small businesses have opened in the Cairo area during recent years. The town's proximity to both a major transportation corridor through the Hudson River Valley and the populous state capital of Albany, likely contribute to its commercial prospects. Residents possess ready access to public schools. A number of private schools also serve students in the upscale Hudson River Valley region.
