I've spent countless hours weighing the pros and cons of owning real estate in Old Greenwich. First of all, I can't tell you how much I love the community. The con is that it is more expensive than other ares. You pay for what you get. Old Greenwich real estate over the past 20 years has got to be one of the best producing assets in town. The reason, in my opinion, has been the increase in demand to owning properties in close knit communities. Like Cos Cob, North Mianus and Riverside, Old Greenwich has one of the closest communities in Greenwich. I tell my clients all the time that if they end up buying on certain streets, I wouldn't be suprised if a couple apple pies and welcome baskets made it to their door within a couple weeks of closing.
In addition to the town, Tod's Point (Greenwich Point Park) is one of the biggest attractions. Not only does this incredible 150 acre public waterfront mecca provide a fantastic place to visit durring the warmer months, but in the winter it is open to dogs.
I'm down there all the time with mine.
