 Stamford Connecticut Homes for Sale

Stamford, Connecticut Real Estate

A beautiful coastal city located just 35 miles northeast of Manhattan, Stamford, Connecticut has had many changing faces over the past century, evolving from the major port between New Haven and New York City at the turn of the 20th century, to "The Research City" in the 1970s, to the third-largest corporate center in the country in the 1980s. The city's latest evolution began in the late 1990s, as Stamford cemented its status as a major financial center.

Stamford real estate offers a variety of living options that fit the many needs of its diverse population of 117,000 residents. The city has both urban and suburban elements, from the multi-acred wooded lots in North Stamford, to beautiful shoreline areas, such as Shippan Point and Dolphin Cove. Signficant new high-rise residential development is being done in the downtown area, with condominiums and apartments ranging from "affordable" to high-end luxurious residences.

Downtown Stamford offers a variety of shopping, fine dining, entertainment and other attractions, including the 1,700-plus seat Palace Theater, home to the nationally-recognized Stamford Symphony Orchestra and the Connecticut Opera, plus the Stamford Center for the Arts, which includes two theaters. The city's proximity to The Big Apple opens a whole other world of entertainment options, from Broadway to Times Square. The Metro North railroad can get you to New York City's Grand Central Station in 46 minutes, with ample parking at the Stamford train station. Stamford is also a stop on the Acela, the high-speed train between Washington, D.C. and Boston.

Stamford has protected its coastline area with large tracts of open land, including a number of public parks for recreational use. More than half a dozen parks are located here, ranging in size from six acres up to the 187-acre Mianus River Park and Glen, offering swimming, fishing, ice skating, picnic areas, riding and nature trails, athletic facilities and natural areas. Scalzi Park, located on the river in the downtown area, has bocci and tennis courts, baseball and softball fields, volleyball courts, a fitness course and a roller hockey rink. A busy boating area with a plethora of marina slips, Stamford also has great beaches, including Cove Island Park, Cummings Beach and West Beach. A public ice skating rink at Cove Island Park and two private rinks are popular sites, and have even attracted a few Olympic skaters.

Stamford offers a variety of public and private education options. The Stamford public school system, which serves about 15,000 students, is one of ten districts nationwide named as a model of exemplary education reform by the National Commission on Teaching and America's Future. The district offers magnet schools at all grade levels. Stamford offers a full parochial school system, including a regional high school. The University of Connecticut's Stamford campus, located downtown, offers both undergraduate and graduate programs, many geared toward the needs of the local corporate community.

Stamford is a popular residential choice for both condominium buyers and single-family home purchasers. Condominiums range in price from $200,000 for an "entry-level" option into the millions for high-end luxury. Homes range in size and price from approximately half a million upwards. There are also a significant number of apartment communities for rent.
