Old Greenwich Real Estate Analysis

Jump To:

Old Greenwich is located in southwest Connecticut and is part of the larger town of Greenwich, which was listed as one of the “100 Best Places to Live in the United States” by Money magazine. With a population of just more than 6,600, Old Greenwich retains a quiet, small-town feel that makes it attractive to many potential residents. Spanning north and south of the Post Road, Old Greenwich is the town’s access to Long Island Sound via Greenwich Point, also known as Tod’s Point.

The Old Greenwich area has a rich history, including the Electrolux vacuum manufacturing facility, now home to the Old Greenwich Gables, a condominium complex near the train station.

The annual First Light festivities in December bring the community together along its main street, with free food, sleigh rides and holiday carols filling the air.

Shopping and Dining

Filled with Mom & Pop shops and few chain stores, the village of Old Greenwich is often filled with children riding bikes and skateboarding down Sound Beach Avenue after school, getting ice cream at Darlene’s Heavenly Desires or filling up on chicken nuggets and French fries at the original Garden Catering. Visitors might even see a horse and buggy at the local bank drive-thru, an almost once a week occurrence.

Clothing boutiques, food establishments and everyday necessity shops make up the village of Old Greenwich. Longtime businesses such as Bennett JewelersMacKenzie’s Grill Room, Arcadia Coffee Company and King’s Food Market make Old Greenwich an attractive spot for people looking to put down roots.
