About the owner: My husband and I live in Bloomfield, Connecticut. I sell real estate and my husband is the Town Manager for the Town of Bloomfield, Connecticut.
Why the Owner Chose Arlington: I grew up in Vermont and my husband worked there after graduating from college so we decided to look there when we wanted to purchase a second home. We decided we wanted to live in a place where we could walk to things and be close to the kinds of activites we enjoy here in Connecticut like music and art, shopping and fine dining. The Manchester area was the logical choice for us because it was not too far from Connecticut and had many fo the same benefits.
The Unique Benefits at this House: We knew we wanted to be close to Manchester but we did not want to live there. It was too expensive and not 'Vermont' enough for us. Thus we choose Arlington. We also wanted a property that had good rental potential and this property accomplished that. We love how old this house was and yet it had an updated kitchen. We also love the charm and the size of the rooms. We can have a large crowd in this house and no one feels cramped. We walk to the library, to the rec center, the 7/11 and Church all the time and sometimes to dinner at the Arlington Inn.. There is a nice sense of community in the Village which we really enjoy. The house is just perfect for us!
