CT Real Estate Insight – Living in Village Creek, Norwalk, CT
Real community is hard to find. Remember the days when kids went outside, played all day and came home just in time for dinner?
One exception can be found at Village Creek, right here in Norwalk, Connecticut. Made up of sixty-seven homes on a 37 acre peninsula on Long Island sound, the “Creek” is a planned neighborhood built in the 1950’s and designed by the renowned planned community pioneer Roger Wilcox.
The house offers stunning 270 degree water views and is built in the mid-century modern style high on a rocky outcropping, “Village Creek is the kind of neighborhood where everyone knows you and you get to know them,” says 27 year resident and Realtor for local Connecticut real estate company, RealtyQuest,. Traditions like the upcoming toy drive and holiday cookie swap are mainstays.
As a waterfront community, much of the focus for Village Creek residents is on boating. The private neighborhood marina offers slips for residents, a private beach, tennis courts and a park that provides the perfect spot for the many beachfront community events like the “Welcome to Summer” party each June.
Planned as a “prejudice free zone” Village Creek was founded as a model of democracy with no discrimination based on race, color, creed or politics. Today, the population of original founders, their children and other lucky folks, (many of whom are from the New York City area) enjoy this affordable waterfront oasis and maintain that inclusive and welcoming culture.
Regardless of how times have changed, Village Creek is a neighborhood where you can find community, make lifelong friendships, and maybe even let your kids roam on their bikes until it’s finally time to come home.
