Newtown, CT Real Estate and Homes for Sale

Newtown Town Profile

Founded in 1705, Newtown is a charming, picturesque town nestled amid the foothills of the Berkshire Mountains. The town is filled with beautifully restored 18th-century homes scattered among the sparsely populated woodlands that encompass Fairfield County’s largest township. The Housatonic and Shepaug Rivers border the town respectively on the north and east. Despite the area’s pastoral tranquility, Newtown has easy access to major population centers via I-84, east- and westbound, US Routes 6 and 302, and Connecticut Routes 25 and 34. Tweed-New Haven Regional Airport, Westchester County Airport, and Stewart International Airport, and Bradley International Airport are all within an hour’s drive. Many residents commute to jobs in Manhattan, Hartford, and Stamford. General Electric, IBM, and Pepsi are within commuting distance as well.

Newtown’s land trust association is the oldest in Connecticut, and one of their “town forests” is thought to be the first of its kind in America.

Five town parks provide family recreation, including Treadwell Park, named after former selectman Timothy Treadwell, contains recreation facilities and the town pool.
