The plumber and Orange and Rockland guy both told me that when there's a leak, and the water isn't getting to the tank - the entire thing can explode. He said that the heating element is geared by gas. There's gas in the boiler room (the little shed) as well as the kitchen area of course, for cooking. Maybe each unit is different? I know that #25 had a huge problem with pipes freezing, tanks exploding and other problems which led to repairs. Thank for responding!
That's interesting. I'm pretty sure all the units are the same as far as how they are set up. I have heard that building #25 has had its fair share of problems too. Luckily we haven't had any problems in our building (knock on wood!)

My understanding is that the HOA Fees are up to around $350/month. This has an impact on the value. http://www.RemoRealty.com

I think YOU listing a top floor unit at 215k has more of an impact than the $350/month. The residents should thank you for setting the trend and lowering their condo values.

I applaud him for selling for less money. Those condos are not worth 225k. Unbelievable the market in Monroe and Harriman just because you live on Rt 17 does not mean it's a better commute to the city.

If you owned one of those condos you would not appreciate it. Living off of Rt 17 does not have anything to do with it the prices either. If you travel down the road into Tuxedo, or even a little bit further into Rockland, you would never be able to find anything for our condo prices. I understand the housing market is down, but we can control our condo prices by keeping them steady and not lowering them every week.

I'm looking at lexington hills but I'm concerned about my commute to lower westchester. Does anyone know about how long the commute to/from the tz bridge during morning 6-7 and evening 5-6 commute over route 6 and up nys thruway would be (how far the backup over 6 is)? Thanks

The comments on this board pertaining to the Whispering Hills Community couldn't be more wrong. I have lived here for 10 years as well as being an active member of the Chester community. There are no shootings, drugs or gangs and as far as crime in general, read the breakdown here-http://www.city-data.com/ city/Chester-New-York.html. Crime is basically a non factor. Whoever is writing propaganda pushing the Lexington Hills complex, needs to get their facts straight! WH is a quite community that offers much, much more than Lex Hills. Not to mention I have a garage attached to my unit, I don't need to park in a lot and walk up paths and flights of stairs to get to my place! Pound for pound, WH offers a better quality of life and more amenities.

I've lived in Whispering Hills and there were shootings, gangs, and other life-threatening things that I would never want my children around. My husband is a cop and has reported several of these incidents. I'd rather walk up a few flight of stairs than live in the ghetto of Chester. I'm sorry, but that is one dangerous area. Maybe you're not home enough to see what goes on in your own backyard? We have tons of reports on people moving here from the city (less than desirable places) and their kids developing gangs and selling drugs in the Whispering Hills community AND surrounding areas.

Look it up. Ask a realtor. It's not unknown.

Again Carol, you are out of your mind! Please provide proof of your propaganda!! Police log, something concrete to support your baseless facts.

Whispering Hills is one of the best maintained, desirable condo complexes in Orange County. Fact sweetheart! It's quite evident that some posts here have it out for our lovely complex. Do not believe everything you read, do your own research before falling into the Lexington Hills trap!

For the love of God, I lived there! That's exactly why I moved out. I needed my children in a safe environment. I'm sorry if that offends you, but we were scared for our lives. Even in the past, it was even worse with the Camp Laguardia people coming into the neighborhood. They would break into people's homes and there were much more burglaries there. Now, it's gangs and drugs.

And that's a FACT... Deny it all you want, call the cops and get a report. Ask a realtor. Seriously!

I'm so glad I'm out of there.

P.S. Lexington Hills trap? First of all, it's a much more desirable place and second of all, look at the costs or rent of each condo.

One unit Lexington Hills -$225 appx and for rent,$1,400 and up. I used to rent in Whispering Hills for $800 per month.

I got what I paid for.

You don't know what you're talking about. My income might not be that high, however I am a respected teacher with a masters degree. I also am fluent in English and Spanish. I have three high performing children. If anyone is a transient, it's you lady!

I just moved to Lexington Hills about 3 months ago and low income i don't think so. I live there with my husband who is a NYPD Narcotics Agent and my son. We love it and wouldn't move back to the city for nothing. I would highly recommend this development for anyone. The commute is not bad at all. I drive 2 miles to central valley park and ride and take a bus from there and i'm in the city in an hour.
"wouldn't move back to the city for nothing"? Its for anything, not nothing. ooooooh that in itself sounds low class

Jon, we're definately looking to buy. Are you working through a real estate agent?

It seems as though you're on a 4th grade level. Even that's speaking higher than what you've just written. I guess Orange County doesn't have a great educational system, judging by your grammar, or...lack thereof.

(Thank God there's a teacher with his masters degree up in these parts! Kudos!) I doubt there's one in Whispering Hills. ;)

Wow $350 per month. Before buying a condominium, any prospective buyer should review the financial report. Find out if a reserve study has been completed and how on target the commmunity is at setting funds aside for future work. How were the roads constructed and life expectancy. Retaining walls and life expectancy. Same with the pools and tennis courts. Ask residents when driving through how they enjoy it and what problems they face, attend a board meeting and listen to the agenda issues, questions and issues. Bottom floors tend to leak and receive all the sewage from the units above when there is a backup. Top floors never have permitted attic access. Middle floors receive the noise from both top and bottom floor. What type of construction is in place, block, 2x4 or 2x6. How much insullation is in the walls and ceiling, how old is the hot water heater and heating/ac system.

Lexington Hills is a property where the board of directors chose not to contribute to the reserves for many years putting a strain on finances, now they are catching up but before buying one, one must review the current financial sheet and see if funds are being put into reserves.

Condo regulations in NY are nill, so its buyer beware.

Hi there. I'm looking to move to either Harriman or Goshen, though am leaning towards Harriman. I'm really liking these condos however am a bit concerned, for lack of a better word, that there seem to be so many for sale. Are people moving out that much or is it juts difficult to purchase one?
