Beacon Falls is Greenwich compared to Dover, which IMO is an absolute dump.

I drive through the area quite a bit and have never had problems with congestion or traffic. In all but the worst of weather, things seem to move pretty well. Frankly, inclement weather is less of a traffic issue in sparsely populated areas.
Yeah, the commute on 7/55 is a non issue, IMO. Some of the backwoods parts of New Milford are hilly and can be tricky in bad weather, but the areas of town with rentals are all pretty close to 7.

New Milford is probably your best bet, some where near the town green would be nice

Tax arbitrage is not for the middle class. Live as close to your job as possible. That will provide the greatest savings and give you less headaches.

I agree that living in most of Dover right now leaves a lot to be desired. But the town in its entirely cannot be judged solely on “Onion Town”. Onion Town is a very isolated section of town to the east between the HS and Dover Plains proper. The people there have lived in that same area for probably 100 years or so and have intentionally kept to themselves and very much private all that while.... until that stupid YouTube video that went viral about a decade ago..
Dover definitely lacks the amenities that a modern family would desire. That’s why I mentioned the Wingdale section of town that would put you in closer proximity to Pawling and New Milford for day-to-day needs. And PS Dover will no doubt benefit from Cricket Valley in countless ways in the coming years. They may even get a supermarket soon after all .
Good jobs coming that way soon I’m sure and a definite price cut in local RE taxes
Schools have a ways to go there, but I have no doubt that they will turn.

Just my 2 cents...
