West Hartford Connecticut Homes For Sale
West Hartford, Noah Webster's hometown and a suburb of Connecticut's capital made the 2010 Kiplinger 10 Best Cities For the Next Decade. ""It is on our list because it is transforming itself from a suburb into a destination -- in this case, a regional destination for shopping and dining"". Education is West Hartford's hallmark, and schools -- both public and private -- are the biggest draw for newcomers to the town. Public schools are top-notch in the state, and Connecticut schools rate among the best in the nation. Three colleges in town up the quotient of highly educated residents -- 57% have a bachelor's degree or higher, versus 36% for the state.
Three years ago, the town doubled the size of West Hartford Center by adding a new mixed-use real estate development in West Hartford of upscale retail stores, condominium residences and loft apartments. This development is called Blue Back Square, in homage to Webster's Blue-Backed Spelling Book. The square brought a movie theater, a Crate & Barrel, a Whole Foods Market and an REI to the town's central shopping and dining district. In West Hartford single-family homes are available for under $200,000 in the south end of the city. The median price is about $300,000.
