Q: What kind of real estate opportunities does summer offer?
A:
Summer is a fabulous way to discover Greenwich. Over the last six or so years, many Manhattan families have started to call Greenwich home in the summer. While it’s difficult to find a summer rental, this offers the perfect opportunity to enjoy all of the beautiful amenities so close to Manhattan. Most of these families find themselves purchasing properties in Greenwich. This creates a busy season in real estate.

Q: Are there any areas within Greenwich that are particularly popular?
A:
Summer in Greenwich is magical, as it offers something for everyone. On the coast, one can enjoy Tod’s point, almost 150 acres of beach and park, great for a variety of watersports, hiking, biking, and sunbathing. There is even an area designated for clam bakes—you cannot get more New England than that. There is also boating, fishing, and sailing on the Sound. Captains Island and Island Beach can both be accessed from the town ferry. Inland offers parks, tennis, polo, horseback riding, and championship golf courses. Greenwich Avenue also really shines during the summer; with extensive restaurant options, art galleries, and top-notch shopping, strolling up and down the avenue is a great way to spend the day and evening.

Q: What kind of market are you seeing?
A:
The market has had some challenges, but overall the Greenwich market is still extremely desirable. With the current great values, low property taxes, and low interest rates, I cannot imagine a better time to purchase.

Q: Any notable openings in the area recently?
A:
In terms of dining, Douro, a popular Greenwich staple, recently reopened in a larger space to keep up with demand. Also brand new is Miku, a sushi restaurant serving beautiful and delectable dishes.

55 Mooreland Road in Greenwich, Connecticut; $6,200,000.
