Currently a CT "city" resident ((in the Hartford area) looking to move to a rural area. Possiblities.....Harwinton/New Hartford, Durham/Middlefield, Marlborough area(s). We're not interested in the pricey areas. So much of CT's real estate AND taxes are so high (we currently live in one). What cities/towns in CT are nice towns to live in but with out overpriced real estate and not-so inflated taxes? Schools are not a concern as we have no children. We both work within a 10 minute drive from New Britain....we would like to keep the commute to about 30 minutes one way. Looking for smaller home on a decent size lot. Before I contact a real estate agent, I'd like input from helpful people so I can better understand the areas. Any info on the above areas or any others in CT are greatly appreciated. Open to any suggestions on towns that might be of interest to us....thank you

I live in Marlborough and I love it. I watched the real estate market here for a while and noticed homes sell, but just about all of them seem to sit on the market for a number of months making the asking price very negotiable. You could easily get a 1,500 SF house on an acre or more for around $250K.

Taxes are low here (for CT!) our mill rate is in the mid 20's somewhere. Properties were just revaluated last year.

The commute out of Marlborough isn't bad across the CT rRver towards New Britain. I head up Route 2 to Route 3 to 91 South and only encounter traffic if there is an accident.

Thanks for your reply......

Marlbough is one of our choices.. Do you have any idea on the housing prices in the surrounding towns.
