It takes no time at all for home buyers in the New Haven, Connecticut area to become smitten with its vintage New England charm, historic landmarks, urbane atmosphere and logistical advantages; but there’s more to being a New Haven County home owner than meets the eye. Beyond the pastoral, 19th century backdrop, New Haven’s 21st century advantages make it one of the country’s most desirable areas to buy or sell a home.
New Haven is that root-planting, community-oriented kind of place that allows residents to have it all; close-knit neighborhoods, plenty of year-round outdoor recreation, excellent schools, close proximity to New York City and Boston, and the distinction of being home to the history and culture of Yale University.
Suburban communities like Wallingford, Hamden and North Haven provide homeowners with all the all the bucolic beauty you’d expect from a New England landscape, along with an abundance of the county’s cultural opportunities including museums, theater, restaurants, shopping and year round festivals like the International Festival of Arts & Ideas (June 14-28, 2014) in downtown New Haven. This seemingly nonstop series of music, art, lectures and conversations to take place over the course of the 15-day event was named one of the top 50 U.S. cultural events for 2014 by CNN Travel.
And although winter in the New Haven area is as picturesque as it gets, even the hardiest Nutmeggers are ready for the warm weather activities available throughout New Haven County. Communities like Wallingford have already released their Department of Parks and Recreation Spring/Summer 2014 activity guide packed with local and regional activities—family day trips to Yankee Stadium for instance, tours of the Vanderbilt Mansion and FDR’s Hyde Park Estate, lobster dinners in Kennebunkport, Maine and so much more.
