Easton CT Homes and Living

Easton, CT

Easton is located in the heart of Fairfield County and has retained much of the rural character that has attracted residents for decades.

Founded in 1757, Easton’s level of commitment to maintaining its original eighteenth century beauty and seclusion is truly remarkable. The result is a completely private and tranquil setting, rich in nature and country charm. Fruit orchards, dairy farms and a warm and inviting general store are the only commerce found in Easton quite contrary to the active industries of inn keeping, textiles, farming, milling and blacksmithing which once flourished in town. Easton had nurtured a quiet residential community and preserved its ambience.

7,500 acres of forest surrounding three vast reservoirs further enhance the magnificent natural beauty of the town.

Easton has been able to maintain its rural character over the years by its strict zoning of either one or three acre parcels for building.

Architectural styles include picturesque farmhouses, early colonials and newer homes of contemporary and traditional design.

Since the establishment of Connecticut’s first free school in Easton, the town has continued to provide a solid academic foundation to students. One elementary school—Samuel Staples, one middle school—Helen Keller and one high school—Joel Barlow located in Redding, and one private school—Phoenix Academy, comprises Easton’s educational system.

Easton parks and recreation options include horseback riding

The Connecticut Golf Club and Aspetuck Valley Country Club offer a variety of social and recreational pleasures to members, including excellent golf courses. The town also provides sporting facilities through its parks, baseball diamonds, tennis courts, and 125 acres of open space for cross-country skiing and horseback riding. The Lion Hill Riding Academy brings equestrian enjoyment to all Easton residents. Silverman’s Farm offers a petting zoo, farmer’s market, pick-your-own seasonal produce and a working cider mill.
