Welcome to Weston, Connecticut.....where environmentally and socially responsible citizens actively preserve one of America's most idyllic, enchanting, physically beautiful, community-centric, charming and prosperous small towns...with an award-winning school system and an easy commute to New York!
Weston has preserved its tranquility and solitude within 20.7 square miles of sacred parks, forests, farms and waterways approximately 50 miles from Manhattan. In addition to its current group of entrepreneurs and artists, prior residents who have enjoyed the peace and sense of community include Betty Davis and Robert Redford.
Weston is essentially a commercial free community with 2-acre minimum residential zoning and easy access to a world of services – including Westport beaches -- a stone’s throw away. Preserving its natural beauty and quiet atmosphere, Weston offers a haven for commuters and those who welcome a buffer from the frenzy of modern life.
In addition to its pastoral LOCATION, Weston is prized for its TOP-RANKED EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM as well as a robust roster of community activities, sporting and cultural events.
Throughout the years, Weston schools have been nationally recognized for their excellence for student proficiency and college preparedness. When it comes to education, teachers, parents and students continue to work together with stellar results!
Weston students principally get to collectively grow, evolve and develop together through the town's four grade-specific, centralized schools. This commitment to keep students together as they advance through the exceptional Weston school system, accounts for the depth of formed friendships and bonds which permeates the culture of the entire community.
Extracurriculars may begin with hikes at Lucious Pond Ordway Devil's Den or Trout Brook Valley preserve, with 730 acres of open space with apple and blueberry orchards and over twenty miles of hiking trails ranging from beginner to expert. Bisceglie Scribner Park has 253 acres including little league fields and a swimming pond.....Lacht Farm allows residents the opportunity to plant their own garden…and the list goes on!
The Town Center is always a hub of activity, with fun sometimes continuing at the Weston Racquet Club or to the beautiful Aspetuck Country Club. Weston offers an exceptional lifestyle – as well as an exceptional array of individually-designed homes -- to those who value education, the arts, a natural environment and a sense of community – all just a short distance from vibrant NYC!
