I dont agree with Torrington, I've lived there and would never return. It's rundown and far from basically everything.

Don't worry, we're looking in other CT areas where land is more affordable, but then the train access is more of a pain.

Oh, life and its challenges! Thanks for the info!
Sorry I did not mean to make you feel guilty or for you to give me an answer. It really is none of my business why you need/want a large piece of property. I just know that finding that size property, in your price range, near a train station will be difficult. Again, sorry about that. Jay

Torrington is not close to any major cities so I wouldn't recommend it. The cute, charming towns tend to be on the pricey side. But prices are still coming down and it is possible to squeeze into towns people would say you can't afford. Have you researched prices in Milford? Would you be willing to buy a smaller house that needs cosmetics if you could get into a town you like?
