You say you are looking for a "progressive" town, but the towns mentioned so far have been some of the most conservative in the state. I'd recommend Kent as fitting your bill.

"Conservative" in CT is "progressive" in FL.

Also, closer to Oxford I'd also suggest Beacon Falls and Seymour. Beacon Falls is a bit rough around the edges in parts, but beautifully rural in others and property is cheap. Seymour is relatively inexpensive. Also, Bethany is a beautiful rural town with access to shopping/restaurants/culture/farmer's markets/parks in New Haven, Milford, etc. and still within 45 minutes of Danbury. However, it might be tough getting your acreage in these towns.

I would second the New Milford, and the Woodbury, Southbury, Oxford area, but also add Newtown and Monroe. It's beautiful and woodsy, as noted. The only problem for the OP with towns like Oxford, and Monroe are that they do not have a large defined downtown area. Newtown has a small, charming center of town but it's not very walkable and I don't know that I would consider it the place where residents gather.

That being said, I don't know if you can get much more than 2 acres in these towns for 500k. They can be pricey.
