WILTON, CT - Selling Your House
The Town of Wilton, first settled in 1701, is a classic New England town nestled in the Norwalk River Valley of southwestern Connecticut (approximately one hour northeast of Manhattan).
The quiet agricultural community has mindfully evolved to incorporate commercial development and retail establishments along Route 7, while remaining dedicated to preserving its beauty, charm, and many open spaces scattered among its 27 square miles. The residential properties are mostly limited to two-acre zoning and the quaint Village Center and Town Green are highlighted by fine independent retailers and dining establishments.
Residents delight in the winding back roads with trees, streams, ponds, woods, and rolling hills; they are all a part of Wilton’s appeal that affords privacy as well as a pastoral setting within close proximity to the New York metropolitan area.
Enjoy a wide variety of winter, spring, summer, and fall festivities all year long! Wilton community events are centered around arts and culture, antique hunting, planting the garden, sorting through freshly picked organic produce at roadside stands, and sampling local harvests like apple cider and pumpkin picking while savoring the beauty of magnificent fall foliage in anticipation of the crystal backdrop for ice skating and cross country skiing.
