There are some nice condo's in New London and Groton plus nearby towns (townhouse-2 bedroom 1.5 baths) for 185K- 200K Proprerty taxes around 2k a year.

A Cape Cod or ranch built in the 60s to 70s around 225K+
Great culture- the Eugene O'Neil theatre, the Submarine Museum, Wineries, Much local history- the Mystic Sealife Aquaruim, and Seaport, Great beaches in New London and nearby Rhode Island.

Cost of living is much less then New York, LI Fairfield county CT.
Ticks are an overblown problem here- common sense rules- and you will have no problems.

Lots of local arts and crafts- schools locally are very good- gifted? Please check the local school districts. Climate is mild- warm summers and winters tempered by the nearby sea.
