South Farms, In Middletown, CT

Mortgage and Lending with George Souto NMLS #65149 FHA, CHFA, VA Mortgages NMLS #65149

Middletown Connecticut can be identified by five major sections, South Farms, Westfield, Westlake, Downtown, and the Northend. With the most rural, and diverse sections being the  South Farm sections of town.   South Farms, In Middletown, CT is the most centrally located to major through-ways, shopping areas, as well as Downtown.

South Farms is bordered by RT 9, and RT 155.  While this section of town has a very country atmosphere, you can be Downtown, grocery shopping, taking in a movie, or having your favorite fast food within 5 minutes.

While South Farms is the home to several small farms which are still run by families who first started them, such as the Harvey, Lee, Graves, Harris, and Brock families. 

South Farms is also the home of three Planned Residential Communities with cluster housing.  Cedar Village, Sand Hill Road, and South Farms newest Planned Residential Community, West Ridge Estates.  These Planned Residential Community are well placed among well established neighborhoods with much larger lots and various style homes. 

All thought South Farms has a very distinct New England look, it does also have housing  you might not normally expect to see here, and would not see unless you take the time to tour this part of town.  When you drive through the South Farms back roads you will not only see the expected typical New England Style Homes, but you will also see some very larger, more contemporary styles that attract those who are looking for upper end houses.

 

As you continue your drive through South Farms you might also be surprised to see Apartment Complexes such as Woodbury Circle, and Summer Hill which are subsidized apartments for lower income families.  Both of these Apartment Complexes combined consist of over 300 units.

South Farms even has its own Fire Department (shown above) that is supported by a separate Tax District which is separate from the town budget, and voted on only by South Farms residents.  For those interested in higher education South Farms is the home of Middlesex Community College, where students can attend and receive an Associates Degree in Business, Marketing, Science, and Liberal Arts.

Morning George.

Sounds like a place we would enjoy, however it is just a tad out of our range where we would want to live

South Farm section of Middletown CT is so beautiful.  Stately homes in the upper price bracket yet government-subsidized apartments for lower-income families sounds like a diversified community.

George my friend I am sure I drove through South Farms four decades ago but in those days I was driving like a European, since that is when I returned from four years being there... so with that said it was probably a blur.... now I get the chance to see it through your pictures:) Endre
