Retreat to the Luxury and Elegance of Old New England

Nestled into the lush green countryside and rolling hills of the Farmington Valley outside of West Hartford, Avon, CT is the quintessential charming New England town. Affluent neighborhoods of stately older homes quietly give way to a scenic town center where traditional Cape Cod style houses still house many of its local businesses, and lush green oaks line the streets. For those who want to be within easy reach of the excitement and opportunity of Hartford, yet live quietly removed from the hustle-and-bustle, Avon just might be the perfect town.
