I want a house in a subdivision in New Milford, CT. Got any?

I set out, camera in hand, to get you some pictures of our subdivisions in New Milford, CT.

Fieldstone Estates, New Milford CTA funny thing happened, I realized my concept of a subdivision is not like what others around the country may have. Sure, technically we have them, a few even have a fancy sign, set in stone pillars as an example. Graceful entrances to a few of the newer ones. Yet the older, more established subdivisions have lost their signs, some of the residents probably don't even realize what the subdivision was once called! Of course a trip to the town hall would tell you the name when the subdivision was created. But now they are just neighborhoods. Some smaller, some larger, and they are located all over town. 

Sorry, we have neighborhoods, no cluster style subdivision homes here!

What I found was... I couldn't get pictures! Not of the homes anyway, not really. Many of them are well established with an acre or two of land. The homes are set back from the wide, tree lined streets and you just can't get a good shot of the typical homes. (I don't like to take pictures of homes unless I have a home listed, I wouldn't want it of my own home so I don't do it, sorry about that.) 

After much thought I decided we have neighborhoods. If you tell us you want to live in a subdivision we will know what you mean. You want more of a neighborhood feel, homes that are not in more private locations. Each one offering home owners something special based on size, price, location in town. We have them all here. 

New Milford, CT is 64 square miles and rural. Which "subdivision" or neighborhood will suit you best often depends on where you work.

If you want to get to New York State quickly, perhaps something along the New York border will work best for you, like Colonial Ridge off of Route 55. Colonial Ridge is a well established subdivision. With that comes more trees, more plantings, homes in varying stages of upgrades and therefore varying prices. 

Or maybe you need quicker access to I84. We have a few options available in Southern New Milford. For larger, newer homes, Fieldstone Estates is still in progress of being built, the latest ones are on Reservoir Road.

For homes that are going to be less expensive, Meadowbrook or Pleasantview are both great options. Although there are no longer signs there to let you know the name, many people will still refer to them by name. The streets are wide, the neighborhoods are both well established, the homes vary in size and price, and of course style. 

If you want a newer, larger home with all the bells and whistles, the larger 4-5 bedroom colonials in Fieldstone Estates or Farmstead Acres might just do the trick for you. Fieldstone Estates is in the southern part of town, and Farmstead Acres is on the cusp of Northville, just off Route 109 and Ridge Rd. Gorgeous homes, not fully built out but already well established. Very quite cul de sacs in both. 

Perhaps Candlewood Lake is more to your liking? Homes in lake communities are just that, we do not refer to them as subdivisions. They are water communities with association fees. Some are now tax districts instead of associations. They do have rules and regulations and they are all different. The one thing they all have in common is Candlewood Lake! Many of these lake communities have been around almost as long as Candlewood Lake has been here. Again, all different prices, different styles, options for anyone that is looking for one thing above all others. Access to Candlewood Lake!

Depending on what your needs are there are many different areas, "subdivisions", neighborhoods, even more rural lifestyle homes available in New Milford, CT.

All prices, all sizes, homes with privacy, homes on cul de sacs, antiques, new construction and all in between. Let us know what is important to you and we are sure we can help you find your new home in New Milford, CT! Your choice will probably start with which section of town you want to be in, then price and size of the home will come into play for you.
