ALL THINGS GREENWICH
Located less than 40 miles from New York City and just across the state line from New York, Greenwich, Connecticut is one of the nation’s most dynamic communities and residential real estate markets.
With approximately 62,000 residents, Greenwich represents the 10th largest municipality in Connecticut, and the largest of Connecticut’s famed “Gold Coast” towns.
While the town has captivated generations of families who put down roots and remain today, increasingly, Greenwich has attracted a healthy arrival of newcomers.
As has been its legacy since the town was founded in 1640, Greenwich continues to see its fair share of Manhattanites who come to Connecticut seeking more bucolic land and lifestyle – for full-time residency or weekend and holiday retreat.
The town is a natural fit for relocation homebuyers, especially those who work in commercial centers from Manhattan to Stamford, and beyond. New York City is less than an hour away by train, and commuter arteries between Greenwich and New York are easy to access from any section or neighborhood in town.
With its renowned , the town has enduring appeal for homebuyers who envision raising their families here.
Greenwich is also increasingly attracting residents from across the country, oceans and continents, as well. People far and wide, from Europe, Asia and Latin America, for example, have embarked on long journeys to bring their families to Greenwich, to call it home.
The result is a culturally varied and enriched community – a microcosm of the world, representing all of its splendid traditions, culture, languages and innovations. One of the many byproducts of Greenwich’s remarkable diversity is its thriving arts, music, literary and culinary scenes.
Greenwich charms residents with a bounty of green space, conservation land managed by the Greenwich Land Trust and the Audubon Society, and public amenities such as its many parks, beaches and recreational venues.
For residents seeking private golf and yacht club memberships, Greenwich also accommodates.
BUYING A HOME IN GREENWICH
To anyone not particularly familiar with the Greenwich housing market, invoking the town’s name likely conjures up images of grand mansions and multimillion-dollar estates. It is true that Greenwich has a treasure trove of these impressive luxury properties at the higher end of the market. However, it may surprise some to learn that – like its community – Greenwich’s housing and neighborhood options are quite diverse.
For nearly any budget, investors can buy into the Greenwich value proposition, which includes measurably lower property taxes than any other neighboring Connecticut or New York towns.
Architectural styles in Greenwich run the gamut – everything from historic, placarded antiques to shingle-style coastal homes, from mid-century modern to European manor houses, from new construction to labor-of-love restoration projects.
It is important to note that Greenwich’s neighborhoods are decisively distinctive. Whether homebuyers are seeking acreage and a country setting, their own slice of Connecticut shoreline, an equestrian property, close proximity to schools or the renowned shopping on Greenwich Avenue; whether they are buying their first home or downsizing in anticipation of retirement; or whether their goal is to live in a private association or a bustling neighborhood favorable to the dynamics of family life, there is seemingly a perfect option for every real estate investor.
JOINING THE GREENWICH COMMUNITY
Yet another wonderful result of Greenwich’s diverse population is the vast number of religious, philanthropic and community organizations founded here. Newcomers will quickly discover that the Greenwich community is engaged, informed, generous and giving.
There is never a shortage of things to do in Greenwich.
The town and local institutions such as the , , the , and others host special events and festivals throughout the calendar year, encouraging residents to gather, socialize and commune beyond their neighborhoods. It strengthens the fabric of the community and instills a palatable sense of pride in our town.
