Less than an hour from Manhattan, Greenwich, Connecticut has been first on Money magazine's “Biggest Earner” and “100 Best Places to Live in the United States”. The Greenwich real estate market is full of historical estates on and off the coast. In autumn, the colors of the leaves create a perfect tapestry to showcase the stunning Greenwich homes. The gorgeous beaches are perfect for strolling or lounging, relaxing under the soft breezes and “shush” of the ocean. The luxury of a home here is the classic peace and feel of family within Greenwich itself. Its history is long and proud and well-preserved.
Visit Putnam Cottage (or the Knapp Tavern) for a taste of that history. You would be in excellent company as General and future President, George Washington, also visited and ate with his men in the large main room of the over three hundred year old home-made tavern. It has gone through many changes since its construction. It is now a museum. Regarding museums, one can also take an opportunity to visit The Bruce. The Bruce Museum of Arts and Sciences is one of the many benefits of living in the Greenwich region. Its events and exhibits change frequently so there is almost always something new at The Bruce. If you have a yen for a walk, stroll along the Riverside Avenue Bridge, one of the few remaining cast iron bridges in the country.
The beauty of a Greenwich home is its location; far enough from New York City to not have the constant buzz of the metropolis, but close enough to still enjoy all that the metropolitan lifestyle offers. However, Greenwich real estate still coaxes a sense of privacy and safety that New York City cannot offer. Agents affiliated with Sotheby's International Realty stand ready to show you what makes the Greenwich region a distinct real estate opportunity.
