Everything You Need to Know About Weston Real Estate

Whether you’re just passing through or planning to purchase a piece of Weston real estate you will have a sense of the small community feel that permeates the town.  It is a town of just over 10,000 residents and one of its defining features is its zoning restriction that all properties must sit on no less than 2-acres of land.

Weston is a community that is considered to be one of the most affluent in Connecticut and also throughout the United States.  Residents of Weston have the highest median income of any community in Fairfield County at a median income of $219,868.  So if you are looking for a small town with plenty of space to stretch out and build your dream home, Weston may be the place for you.

Weston boasts the rating as the 6th best town in Connecticut with median home values over $325,000 according to Connecticut magazine who published their list based on community engagement, crime, education and culture/leisure.   Nationally the town of Weston is known as an incredibly safe community as it was ranked the 6th safest community in the entire United States by SafeWise.

You won’t have to drive too far to get into the city though, as this rural Connecticut town sits just 50 miles away from New York City and while it is the only community in Fairfield County without a train station to take you into the city, you can stop in any one of the neighboring communities to take the train in, if that is your preferred mode of transportation.  If you need to hop on a plane to travel you will be just 1 hour away from New York’s Laguardia Airport and just under an hour and a half to JFK by car.

What the community lacks in size it more than makes up for in amenities as Weston is home to many parks and beautiful nature reserves.  There are a number of wonderful dining and entertainment options in Weston as well as within a short drive from the center of town.
