Old Greenwich is an incredible community — the absolute best in Connecticut. Safe, picturesque with highly regarded schools, Old Greenwich is an absolute treasure for those raising a family. There is a real sense of community making it town like no other. 40 minutes to Manhattan makes this town easily accessible to the world’s financial district and some of the most prestigious multinational business organizations. Real estate in town tends to range from $1.5M to around $8M making it a very expensive place to live, however, the personal and family-oriented benefits entirely outweigh the costs.

Simply put: Old Greenwich is a community worth experiencing!

Close to beach. 1-hour train ride to NYC. Clean, good restaurants, good shops. Diversity of people is not static - lots of people move in, and out, regularly. International communities. Good public schools.
