About New Canaan, Connecticut

Similar to a Norman Rockwell painting, New Canaan, Connecticut is characterized by its simple, classic charm. New Canaan has over 400 acres of public open space that consists of ponds, woods, streams and fields.

A medley of tranquility and sophistication, residents refer to the quaint New England community as the “Next Station to Heaven.” Fine boutiques, coffee shops, antique stores, bistros and restaurants define New Canaan’s town center. Its 22 square miles are comprised of scenic winding roads, countless stone walls, handsome aged trees and New Canaan homes for sale ranging from stunning colonials to dramatic contemporaries.  New Canaan is primarily famous for its charming residential sections. In-town properties include condominiums and luxury townhouses, all within a short stroll to the village.  

With Manhattan only 40 miles away, commuting or pleasure trips to New York City are a breeze. New Canaan has been spared the overcrowding generated by the intrusive presence of major transportation corridors. The Merritt Parkway (recently designated as a scenic American highway) makes access to the larger local communities effortless.

Homes, gardens, houses of worship, businesses and institutions integrate graciously with the town’s historic ambience, making New Canaan a place anyone would love to call home.
