To go along with this, the SECRET is out!  Shelton offers the lowest property taxes in Fairfield county.  Just try comparing condos in Shelton to similar units in a neighboring town. You can bet Shelton will have the lower taxes of the two.

 

Condominium prices typically range anywhere from the mid $150,000s into the lower $700,000s dependent upon the size, style and appointments of the unit along with the amenities provided within the development. 

 

Some complexes offer the very popular First Floor Master Bedroom, complimenting the needs of homebuyers seeking to rid stairs from their everyday lives. 

 

With so many different styles, sizes, and pricing options, the choice is yours!

Just as important as having general knowledge about the various condo complexes is knowing WHERE to look.   As your condo concierge, I can personally match you up to the right complexes based upon your criteria and budget.  I make it my business to know the inventory and market as well as general complex information.  For example, for the many of you interested in single level living or definitely first floor master bedrooms, you have to know where to look.  There are some complexes that have a few 'hidden' ranches amidst a sea of multi-level townhouses. 

 

Common charges below do change and are an approximation only to give you an idea. What they cover vary from complex to complex, so it's important to work with an agent who has the experience with the homeowners association coverage like I do (shameless plug).

ABOUT SHELTON CONNECTICUT

 

Huntington Green Gazebo

Shelton Connecticut is situated in picturesque Northern Fairfield County, surrounded by equally pleasant, family-oriented towns.

 

The town is not small, but also not overbearingly large with a population of just under 40,000.

 

In both 2009 and 2010, Shelton was voted the Best Affordable Suburb in Connecticut according to Bloomberg Businessweek. This affordability is made possible by Shelton’s characteristically low taxes led by a low mill rate.

 

 

Shelton has many different styled areas which attract buyers looking for residential, urban, and rural neighborhoods. Its neighborhoods remain quiet, while restaurants and shopping are only a quick drive away.

Huntington, one of the town's suburban sections offers a colonial village setting with its original town green, many historic homes, executive neighborhoods, shops, markets, and eateries.

As one drives further into Shelton’s country, they will locate Shelton’s White Hills section, which offers many neighborhoods midst a country setting with views galore.

 

 

Shelton also offers a unique downtown section placing homes in a more urban setting with shops and eateries all within walking distance in this close knit community.  

 

 

Shelton‘s superb commuter location has made it attractive to technology and manufacturing businesses. Shelton is home to the most southern part of Route 8, which connects drivers to the Merritt Parkway, Route 25 and I-95.  Because of this great commuter location, many popular businesses have come to call Shelton their home. Shelton is the home to BIC and Perkin-Elmer, just to name a few.

 

The real estate market is strong with homes and condominiums in all price ranges with an average home value of $310,000.  A comfortable combination of residential neighborhoods and commercial enterprise makes Shelton an attractive middle class town. The town has retained much of the natural beauty and New England character of its past even as the town continues to actively cultivate new growth. Shelton’s residential areas feature carefully planned neighborhoods of traditional single-family homes in a range of sizes and price levels, while attractive condominium complexes are nicely incorporated into the landscape.


Aside from Shelton’s residential communities are the activities the community enjoys. Indian Well State Park offers hiking and trails for the nature lovers, while the newer Shelton Dog Park gives pleasure to both dogs and their owners.

In addition to these activities, the town’s two private country clubs appease many members of the community. Highland Golf Club is a 9-Hole Golf Club located in the Downtown section, while Brownson Country Club is an 18-Hole Country Club in the Huntington section.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Love fresh strawberries and blueberries, pumpkin picking, or choosing your own Christmas trees? Shelton is home to the famed Jones Tree Farm offering year-round fun with these activities topped off with a winery. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shelton supports a fine school system with special programs for students with disabilities. There are 5 Elementary Schools which cover grades K-4. an intermediate school including grades 5 and 6. a middle school for grades 7-8. and a high school for grades 9-12.

For those seeking private schooling for their children, St. Lawrence Parish in Huntington and St. Joseph’s Parish in the Downtown section offer private school for grades K-8.
