The Ridges of Waterbury Ct Stately Elegance .. Neighborhood Profile

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Professionals, CT 203-206-0754 REB.0759001

In the Country Club Rd area of Waterbury Ct is the established subdivision know simply as The Ridges. First homes established in 1933 were built for the then movers and shakers of Waterbury, Ct. The section was developed not only because of the stately potential of the area far removed at the time from the congestion of the downtime business district, but also because of it's proximity to The Country Club Of Waterbury, which was the social center for Waterbury's elite at the time.  

The stone monument at the entrance of the Cull-De-Sac served as a reminder to those that entered that this was not just any residential neighborhood. The years have removed the guarded exclusivity of this Waterbury, CT subdivision and it has become a neighborhood ideal for raising a family.

The homes along these 3 gently rolling, curved streets still show the pride of ownership that was there when first built. Even within the few open areas that have been built upon since, the character of The Ridges has been retained. Home values in this subdivision are still among the higher values within the  City of Waterbury, and it is still one of the more sought after subdivisions in town, but more for it's access to highways and the convenience of the nearby schools.

Directly opposite the entrance to The Ridges is the campus of Chase Collegiate School a private school catering to children from ages K3 thru 12 whose parents want their children to be challenged both mentally and physically so as to better prepare them for their adult lives.

Also just down the street on Oronoke Rd is Holy Cross High School  which is the largest Catholic secondary high school in the state. As with Chase Collegiate School, the students are challenged here as well but there is more interaction with the other high schools in the area.

Homes come on and off the market in The Ridges and a current listing can be found for 46 WestRidge Dr.  An excellent subdivision for quality of life with a reminder of old time neighborhood values.
