Driftway, Danbury CT Real Estate
One of the hidden gems for commuters in Danbury is the Driftway Road area. Located off of Mill Plain right, tucked away from it all, this area is a peaceful suburban residential environment. The area has a very scenic feeling, with the West Lake reservoir and open space opened by the state for the nearby surrounding Western Connecticut State University west side campus.
The neighborhood is a mix of slowly winding country roads, small cul de sacs and small quiet neighborhoods. Homes in the Driftway area were built between the early 1800s up to today,with most homes being constructed in the late 1960s. They are typically set on about 1 acre lots, with plenty of trees,shrubs and plantings.
Streets in the Driftway area include Driftway,Hall St, Hall Ln, Quail Run, Devonshire, Westwood Terrace,Sunset Ridge and Westwood Drive.

One of the great things about the area is the near proxminity to the New York State line and shopping/dining along Mill Plain Road. Since the neighborhood is so close to New York, you get to miss a lot of the traffic heading into Danbury in the morning,and there are back road options from the New York line in case of backups on the highways.
