Southbury CT Real Estate

Southbury, incorporated in 1787, is unique! As the words “Unica Unaque” (meaning “The One and Only”) proclaim on the town seal, Southbury is the only community in the country with this name. Located on Interstate 84, within 80 miles of New York City and 40 miles of Hartford, Southbury’s location provides easy access to major business and commercial centers. Mainly a rural farming town before the opening of I-84 in 1963, the town today is a charming blend of rural country areas, suburban neighborhoods, and historic districts.

Town parks encompass over 200 acres and include a pool, beach, sports fields, tennis courts, play areas for children, a dog park and open areas for hiking or just enjoying nature. In addition, the local land trust owns or has conservation easements on over 1,000 acres, and the Audubon Center at Bent of the River has a 700 acre wildlife sanctuary with fifteen miles of trails. There are also three Connecticut State Parks, a bridle trail, two golf courses and the Shepaug Dam Bald Eagle Observation Area located in town.

In 2009, Southbury was noted for preserving its historical heritage and named a “Preserve America Community” by the federal government. Southbury is proud of its five historic districts and nine buildings listed in the Register of Historic Places. There is a diverse mixture of housing opportunities in Southbury offering single family homes and condominiums in all price ranges. The 55+ community of Heritage Village boasts its own golf course, four pools, tennis courts, etc. in a park-like setting with rolling hills and numerous ponds. It is one of the top twenty retirement communities in the United States.

Southbury is a partner with the town of Middlebury in the highly regarded Region 15 school district. Region 15 schools offer an academically rigorous curriculum, individual and team athletics programs that build a student’s self confidence and competitive spirit, and performing and visual arts programs that have been honored at local, state and national levels. Region 15 comprises one high school, two middle schools, four elementary schools, and a central office.

Shopping is very convenient and offers three supermarkets, brand name stores such as Kmart, T.J. Maxx, Dress Barn, Pier 1, Coldwater Creek, Staples, Gap and many boutiques. Great restaurants are plentiful in Southbury and neighboring Woodbury, offering numerous choices from casual eateries to award-winning fine dining. The weekly Farmer’s Market during the summer is very popular.

Visiting out-of-town family and friends have a choice of two hotels: The Heritage Hotel (www.heritagesouthbury.com) and the Crowne Plaza (www.crowneplaza.com/Southbury).
