One thing that surpises people from outside of the Danbury area is that we are do not have large subdivisions of 75-500 + single family homes. One reason of we why don’t have those large communities is that there is not much large parcels on land to built on. Typically new devolpments in the area are about 2 dozen homes, but sometimes builders just buy vacant lots in established neighborhoods and put up some newer homes. Towns also limit the number of homes that can be built on land because of the impact the new homes will have on the school systems. The towns in the Greater Danbury area also like to have some of the land preserved as open space. More often that not, most homes are on about 1 acre( depending on zoning), which will limit the number that were built, under construction or proposed. Almost all properties do require septic & wells. One final thing about new construction is that most of the new construction communities in the Danbury area do not offer amenties, other than townhome communites.
New and newly construction communities include:
Ridgebury Hills (Danbury),Brookfield Crossing (Brookfield),Spring Ridge (Danbury),Tobin’s Court (Danbury),Rock Ridge (New Fairfield),Red Fox Crossing (New Fairfield),Tilson Woods (Newtown),White Oak Estates (Danbury),Fieldstone Estates (Danbury), Fieldstone Estates (New Milford) and Whispering Glen (Brookfield)
