My husband saw this brand new construction in West Haven right off Boston Post Road, across from UNH, and he really liked it. I liked the house also but I'm not sure about the location or neighborhood. It's Andrews Street off of Boston Post Road. How is the neighborhood?

Skip it. The house might look great, but the area leaves a lot to be desired. We are very familiar with that area, and would not move our family there. Go a few hundred feet down the road in either direction and you will get a feel for the area.

We've been looking at houses for a while and probably passed on the same house you are talking about.

The nicest areas in West Haven are west and south of Painters Park more towards the Milford line.

Plus, I don't know if you have bought a home before, but the West Haven taxes are high and have been growing at a good rate the last few years. Keep that in mind.

Thanks for the reply. My agent says the taxes for that house might be around 5500 or even higher! I want to buy in New Haven around the Westville area or maybe even Hamden around Spring Glen. Are you familiar with those areas?

Prepare for Hamden to have the same amount of taxes as West Haven. I do not know the taxes for Westville.

Both are very nice areas, Spring Glen would probably give you more yard with a "newer" type houses compared to Westville. Westville is saturated with early century colonials, a lot of 2 family homes. Personally I would take Spring Glen as a family reason for schools, but Westville is ok, too, especially for couples without children.

Smile Westville info

Hi,

I am a New Haven County Realtor and I love Westville!.. Its full of charm, great architecture and very family friendly. I love doing open houses and watching all the families walk by and everyone seems to know each other... Your neighbors will range from Yale professors, doctors and lawyers (remember your a short ride to downtown New Haven and you border Woodbridge making this a great spot to live in) and all occupations thereafter..
There are currently over 60 homes available in Westville ranging in price from low 200K to $695K.
