The Community of Wilton, CT

The Community of Wilton, CT

According to the 2000 census, there are approximately 6,000 households in the Wilton community. The public school system is one that continually strives for perfection, in the arts, sports, and academically, consistently receiving awards for excellence. Wilton schools consist of two pre-K – grade 2 elementary schools (Ina Driscoll and Miller Schools,) one school for grades 3-5 (Cider Mill School,) one school for grades 6-8 (Middlebrook School )and one high school (Wilton High School.)

Wilton is a rural/ suburban residential community of approximately 18,000 people, located approximately one hour by car or train from central New York City. Historical sites are represented throughout the town and the small downtown area has a village atmosphere. You will find a four screen cinema multiplex, restaurants, coffee shops, a library, the famous Village Market, its own Play Shop, and a great variety of shops and churches.  

Wilton has community parks for swimming: Merwin Meadows has a swimming pond, playground and picnic area, and Kiwanis Park, run by the YMCA, has a beachy pond and wading pool. Other parks offer scenic trails and fishing. There are public tennis courts galore, private tennis clubs, and a private golf club.

What My Clients Say About Me...

"As a family moving from out of state, we found Dagny to be a tremendous resource not only in terms of real estate, but also regarding everything we needed to know about Wilton and the surrounding area. In fact, over a year later, she is still the first person we turn to with questions about the area. Also, given that we were lugging around a two year old and a newborn while looking at houses, it was important for us to find someone who was kid-friendly and patient and understanding of our situation. We couldn't have found a better match with Dagny. "
