My Life as a Realtor – Day 35

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 35:

What a gorgeous day out – in the 80’s – sunny, but comfortable.  So comfortable, we were able to turn the air off and open our windows for some fresh air!

SSPX0501                     Enterance to Candlewood Town Park ~ New Fairfield, CT

Worked from home again – drove Jonathan to meet with some of his friends at  Candlewood Lake Town Beach in New Fairfield – 5 minutes from home – to meet with some of his friends.

SSPX0502

Then I dropped our car rental off at New Fairfield Auto Body so that Enterprise can pick it up in the am – Oh, that Ford Focus will be missed!  When Joe gets back from Portugal, we will have to go car shopping and he’s insisting on a pick up truck. 

SSPX0504

Then -work, work, work…

Clean, clean, clean…

Back to pick up Jonathan –

SSPX0509

Dinner, dinner, dinner…

Then Melissa and I went to Shaw’s – just a few things needed.  And back home to –

Work, work, work…  until about 2am since I have a busy day tomorrow.

Buying a Home in New Fairfield, CT

If your looking to buy a home in New Fairfield, CT – WONDERFUL!  My family and I moved here from Harrison, NY about 4-1/2 years ago and we LOVE it! 

picture-351Ball Pond – Scenery during my daily commute

New Fairfield borders Brewster, NY – making an easy commute to work for both myself to Century 21 V.J.F. Realty which is located right in Brewster – and my husband who commutes via I-684 to NYC.

Why New Fairfield, CT

  • Accessibility to I-84 and I-684since we do have to work!
  • Great Schoolsmoved here with 5 kids and schools were very important to me.  Don’t have school age kids?  Please keep in mind that purchasing a home which a good school system is great for resale purposes!
  • Low Taxeswe have a comfortably spacious home on 2.1 acres – and pay less taxes than some homes that are 1/4 the size in my neighboring towns of NY.
  • Lot’s of choices for shopping in neighboring Danbury, CT including the Danbury Fair Mall With a large family, I spend lots of $$ in groceries, clothing and other necessities – having choices and paying low taxes on items that are taxable is great! 
  • Candlewood Lake – BEAUTIFUL!!!  60 + miles of shoreline – motorboats are allowed and if you don’t own one, no problem since you can always rent one!
  • Fresh air and scenic viewsYou can go hiking in Pootatuck State Forest or visit the state park of Squantz Pond – or just open your window and BREATHE!
  • Great for a first time home buyer and/or luxury buyerThere are 2 bedroom homes in the $200,000 price range, perfect for a first time home buyer – or large homes, some in private Candlewood Lake communities, for up to a few mil for the luxury buyer.
  • Lots of Wildlife – all I have to do is sit on my deck which faces the woods in my back yard.  There we will see families of deer, foxes, wild turkeys, coyotes – and many have seen bobcat and bear – these last 2, I honestly hope to NEVER see!

In the center of town you’ll find everything from Shaw’s Supermarket or for fresh meats and an awesome Deli, there is the New Fairfield Food Market. For a bite to eat there is Bruno’s Pizza, Biscotti’s, Portofino’s the local diner,  Chinese take out and other eateries. There is also Gas stations and repair shops, Physicians and Dentists, Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts, Hair and Nail salons, our local Hardware store, Banks, Dry Cleaners, Video store – and of course our New Fairfield Post Office, Town Hall and Library.  A small town life with all life’s necessities!

I plan on living here until I’m old and gray… sadly, both have already started!

RISING HEAT CONTINUES IN CT & NY

The HEAT continues to rise in Connecticut and New York.  Once again, many schools through out have early dismissal. 

In New Fairfield, CT, we received an “Alert Now” message saying that the Senior Rec Center would be open all day for anyone needing shelter from this severe heat and humidity – and that CANDLEWOOD LAKE would be open – a GREAT place to cool off!

                                                                     

CANDLEWOOD LAKE is a man made lake with over 60 miles of shoreline.  In 1928, Connecticut Light & Power began the process of making Connecticut’s largest lake with water from the HOUSATONIC RIVER.

In the 1940’s, summer cottages were being built around the 4 towns and city that surround the lake –  BETHEL,   BROOKFIELD,   NEW FAIRFIELD,   NEW MILFORD   AND   SHERMAN – along with the  CITY OF DANBURY. 

Now, most of the homes on and near the lake, are used all year round.  They also have Lake Associations with clubhouses, beaches and private docks.

Candlewood Lake has been a favorite for residents and visitors to boat, fish, water-ski and jet-ski – or to just sit back, relax and enjoy the view!

                                                                                                                           

WON’T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR?
