Cedar Village Planned Residential Community, Middletown, Connecticut, also known as Julia Terrace, is located in the South Farms area of Middletown, Connecticut near RT 9.  It is one of the five Planned Residential Communities that were built in Middletown, Connecticut during the 70's and 80's.  The other four were Wesleyan Hills, Sand Hill Road, Knox Boulevard, and The Farms.

Unlike the Wesleyan Hills Planned Residential Community which I wrote about yesterday, Cedar Village Planned Residential Community, Middletown, Connecticut did not follow the original plan that it was supposed to be developed under.  Cedar Village was suppose to be developed in three different phase, which it was, but before the first phase was completed the original builder filled bankruptcy and left the sub contractors in a very bad position.  As a result of this a Homeowner Association was never formed to oversee the common areas, and to make sure that the homeowners followed the rules and regulations the Community.

To this day Cedar Village Planned Residential Community, Middletown, Connecticut still does not operate under a Homeowners Association, but even without a Homeowners Association Cedar Village functions remarkably well.  Homeowners whose properties abut the common areas have taken it upon themselves to maintain them.

The first two phases of the Cedar Village Planned Residential Community, Middletown, Connecticut is comprised of 80 houses consisting of Capes, Colonials, Dutch Colonials, Raised Ranches, and Ranch style homes.  The first phase began in 1975 and was completed by 1979.  The second phase started around 1981, and was completed by 1984.  The third phase which consists of 80 Condominium known as Countryside Condominiums, were built between 1986 and 1988.

Houses within the Cedar Village Planned Residential Community, Middletown, Connecticut are on 5,000 sq. ft lots, surrounded by common open space areas.  The houses are very affordable for "First Time Homebuyers, ranging in price from$190,000 for a five room ranch with no garage, to $230,000 for the larger colonials with a one car garage.

Being in the South Farms area of Middletown, Connecticut Cedar Village Planned Residential Community, Middletown, Connecticut is surround by farms, but yet within five minutes of Downtown Middletown, and shopping areas.  Cedar Village is made up of mostly younger families with kids.  Being a self contained neighborhood, all the kids know each other and share a lot of activities together.  Cedar Village is in my opinion is an excellent place to raise a family, I raise mine here.

I love your history about the community.  Very interesting!  This should generate some calls to you and an opportunity for you to make some referrals to local agents.

Norma the prices are low because the the lots are only 5,000 sq. ft, and the house range from about 1,000 to 1,400 sq. ft.  Lots of playmates for the kids in this neighborhood :)

Judi, thank you and we never know where life will take us :)

Andrea if I ever consider buying a house on Candlewood Lake, you are the one that I will call.

Bill, thank you, and I always look forward to reading you Localism posts.

Margaret, I would love to do that.

Roger, there are a lot of good writers here in the Rain and a few of them have made comments on this post.

Fun reading this blog, brings me back.  My husband used to be manager of Harbor Park in Middletown and, Andrea, I used to also live in Brookfield.  Cool!

Hi George -- I really like the panoramic shot, it really gives you a sense of things.  Sounds like a wonderful development with well tended to homes that are also very affordable -- a key in today's market.

An, how long ago was your husband the manager at the restaurant, because they have made some changes to the park area.  I will probably do a blog on Harbor Park in the future.

Chris this is a really nice neighborhood for young families and "First Time Homebuyers"

William I have been here for 28 years now so I saw phase 2 & 3 go up.

Great information about the neighborhood, especially for first time homebuyers looking to take advantage of the tax credit. We don't have many associations here in MA but I bet you it attract those buyers that want to stay away from them.

Christina lets just say I don't think that any of the home owners are heart broken that there isn't an association here :)

Joe I do have some excellent Realtors that I partner with and we learn from each other.

Ed boney points are always welcomed :)

Kim thank you.

Jen I agree and it has served as a good motivator as well.
