A village lifestyle, within sight of the Big Apple.

Founded in 1641 as a community of farmers, Old Greenwich it got its start during the late nineteenth century as a weekend and vacation community for New Yorkers with beautiful shoreline inns and cottages. The village of Old Greenwich today still has that small town feel with mostly local merchants and the traditional fire station, gas station, realtor and local bank on the four corners of the only intersection in town. The town features sidewalk seating for restaurants, coffee and candy shops and it has maintained its original New England charm. Because of its village atmosphere, Old Greenwich children often bike or walk to the beautifully renovated elementary school, just one block south of the village. Its parks and beaches are amongst the most beautiful in the North East. Binney Park features a picturesque setting with ponds and rustic bridges as well as tennis courts and baseball fields. Tod’s Point with its beautiful beaches and walking trails along the shoreline is the anchor for outdoor activities for all seasons. From boating to swimming, biking and rollerblading, walking and jogging, windsurfing and sailing, The Point as the locals call it, is every one’s backyard.

Homes in Old Greenwich have held their value during the recent financial crisis better than most other upscale communities in the North East. The limited supply, lack of foreclosure activity and the lowest property tax in the region (mill rate) have contributed to this historic trend.
