So out of curiosity I was looking into Lebanon a little bit after seeing JViello's (or someone else's?) picture of the huge town green...

Saw this house for sale on the MLS.. one of the best property views I've seen in the state! (some of the middle photos)

It really does look 'special'. I am curious about the access road(s) and especially driveway. This is often tricky in such a great setting.

On a 1.6 mil property, I would expect them to be paved and decent, and you would have a snow removal service I'm sure.

A lot of house/property for the money in those parts.

That house would cost 10x as much (or more) in the southwest part of the state.

Thats insane. You can get some super deals on property/homes now in this town. Plus we have the largest town green in New England with a great walking/jogging path around it. Super safe area for familes.

Lebanon and New London County in general are beautiful. I'm just hoping the world doesn't ever figure it out

I may have to look around more.. New London, Norwich, Groton etc are pretty blargh. However, Stonington and Lyme are two of the nicest towns in the state.

The area surrounding the casinos is pretty grimy as well though.. Ledyard?

What are the best towns there in your opinion? (for just tooling around for scenery, not to live)
