Welcome to Greenwich Ct, the first waterfront town across the NY border, just a little NE of NYC. It's a great place to live: low taxes, great schools, multicultural living and all kinds of people watching. Greenwich has the reputation of being "a rich" town, but in truth you get more for a dollar in Greenwich, if you know where to look than almost any other place I've been. Greenwich has a library that is a state of the art facility. It is filled with computers, reference files, art shows, special displays, a video library, audio library, and lots and lots of great books. In fact, if you don't see what you want just ask, the librarian will order it! The main library is on West Putnam Ave.
When it comes to Real Estate in Greenwich, there is a plethora of choices from McMansions that cost $38 million to fixer uppers under $1million. Each area: Greenwich, Byram, Cos Cob, Riverside and Old Greenwich each has its own unique appeal, flavor and attitude. It's much like living in a big city, but you're not, you're in a town with grass, clean air, beautiful beaches, wonderful green parks with public tennis courts, paddle courts, a swimming pool and golf course. All of it available just for being a resident of Greenwich. Some of the sites require a pass purchased for a nominal fee for the year. Where else can you pay $75 for a year's pass and then have a round of golf for $36.00? Yes, IN Greenwich, CT.
I've lived here for over 25 years and I'm still finding wonderful opportunities and occasion to say "thank you" for the blessings of simply driving around and taking in the beauty of old potato stone walls, secret swimming holes on the Mianus, Ada's penny candy store and the ability to sit back and listen to great music in the Secret Garden at Tod's Point while osprey circle above and the sea air oxygenates my soul.
Come visit, or better yet, if you are interested in Greenwich Real Estate, give me a call and I'll show you some great properties. Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you. Susan
