Weekend retreat turned into our full time home. The park-like setting is incredibly Zen and the proximity to the Merritt Parkway and vibrant downtown Westport makes this home a rare gem!
We had a great 2 week stay here in July (family of 4 with 2 sons under 10). The house is in very good condition; well looked after by owners, but also easy to feel comfortable in for a short stay. Plenty of nice seating areas from wonderful large TV room to more formal living room and outdoor porch area. House feels very light during the day. Rear yard and decking area provides a very peaceful, private space, and our young sons happily spent many hours in the large pool. The location works well for those wanting to do things in Westport (7 min drive away), but also have some space and calm. Road is very quiet and good for evening walks with young sons wanting to do bike rides.
The owner was very responsive to our original emails and making arrangements, and there is a property manager to call should any need arise (not needed in our case). Would definitely recommend.
Weston/Westport are residential communities in Southwestern Connecticut (about 45 miles from New York City). We enjoy two acre zoning, a lack of commercial development, a focus on open space, and welcome creative types; actors, writers, and have a vibrant cultural scene.
Weston's unique rural, yet sophisticated, environment boasts an absence of busy commercial boulevards. "The Center" is the go-to place to shop and to meet. There one can find the local grocer, a bank, pharmacy with gift store, dry cleaners, real estate office, post office, spirits shop, hardware store, and gas and service station. The Lunch Box offers ice cream treats, great coffee and homemade pizza, along with other diner fare.
Culture: Weston has an active arts scene. The Weston Commission for the Arts organizes music, art, drama and other valuable cultural events. Weston Library offers a variety of programs, book clubs, and workshops for residents of all ages. An active Senior Activities Center runs a wide range of programs, which include yoga and fitness, knitting/crafts, and much more.
Recreation: Parks and Recreation provides a wide choice of activities and camps for residents. In addition, the indoor pool at Weston Middle School is open to the public year round. Bisceglie-Scribner Park, a 53 acre recreation area, contains Little League fields, picnic facilities, a swimming pond and the Kiwanis Fitness Trail. Aspetuck Country Club, Weston Field Club, Weston Gun Club and Weston Racquet Club provide residents with ample opportunities to enjoy tennis, golf and private club membership.
Open Space: Almost one quarter of the Town is permanently devoted to open space. Whether the northern Nature Conservancy - Lucius Pond Ordway - Devil's Den containing 1,765 acres, or Katherine Ordway Preserve containing 60 acres on the east side of Weston, or 645 acres of Aspetuck Land Trust sprinkled around the Town, every neighborhood can claim some piece of recreational land nearby.
Country Fairs: Emanuel Church and Norfield Church are famous for their fairs. The Grange Fair at harvest time is another popular event, along with Weston Elementary and Weston Intermediate School's PTO's Memorial Day Fair which is a draw for the entire region. Each year the Fair follows an old fashioned Memorial Day Parade, which is hosted by the Weston Volunteer Fire Department. After the parade, free hot dogs and soda can be had by all.
