  Yesterday right after church a large group of us got together and went on a Hayride At Norton Brothers Farm In Cheshire, CT.  This was also my granddaughter Elizabeth's first hayride, and even though it was cold and windy, and she is just 3 1/2 months old she is already a fan.  Everyone one had a good time, especially the kids who sang the "Never Ending Song" for the whole ride. Norton Brothers Farm is a small apple orchard, and the hayride is a tour of the orchard.  Half way through the ride we stopped and everyone got to pick a bag of apples to take home.  Most of the apples have already been picked off the trees, but the ones left sure taste good.. While waiting to go on the hayride we went into the Norton Brothers Farm Store, and purchased some cider donuts and cider to take home...

Cheshire CT was the area this buyer chose as their prime location. With 3 young daughters getting ready to start in school, they wanted a school system that would give their daughters a good education and a chance to get a strong start on life. They chose Cheshire CT as it has one of the finest public school systems in Connecticut as well as excellent resources. Search for Homes in Cheshire CT This over sized 3 bedroom raised ranch offered a lot to the buyer and was within their range of under $250,000. It was dated but livable and any work that needs to be done can do worked over time. With public water and sewers services more common for an urban setting yet offering the landscape and comforts of an rural home. These happy buyers and their family will hopefully have many years to enjo...

A testimonial From A Repeat Client   I had a client close on their Cheshire CT home recently, after waiting for the buyer to close on their home as well. After 3 years in their new home, the family was forced to relocate because of a job promotion. It was a good thing for the fmily, but it could have been a negative as they did not have much tine to appreciate their new home, much less gain significant equity. They had done a lot of work to make the home comfortable for them and the challenge was to get it sold and to not have a large deficiency that needed to be satisfied at closing. All this was accomplished, most likely because the buyers recognized there was a lot of value to the house. As is my routine, I had made donations to some charities in my client's names, and they received ...

A Moss Farms Colonial Sold in Cheshire CT   This Moss Farms colonial had gone under contract with the first week of getting on the market, but as it was part of a chain of 3 deals all connected, we needed to wait for the chain to start the process of closing.  A wonderful 4 bedroom colonial with updates and fresh paint was just what the new buyers wanted. A bonus for them was the large pool and a level yard that their 3 boys would get to enjoy over this summer vacation. Cheshire CT is a great family oriented town with several large parks for recreation. It has a large pool that will soon be available for year round use; a school system that has won numerous accolades for outstanding performance by its students. While this Cheshire CT home may no longer be available, I'm sure we can find...

Cheshire CT Community Pool  . . . A Referendum for Cheshire Residents The residents of Cheshire CT have a big decision to make on Election Day. The Community Pool in Bartlem Park in Cheshire CT is a very valuable town resource. It is very unique to have an Olympic sized pool as a public pool and in Central Connecticut even rarer. The winter of 2011 caused the then bubble cover to collapse; it was the second failure of a cover. Friends of the Pool are working hard to inform residents that the best solution to the pool would be a more permanent structure that would allow year round use of the pool. It is no secret that the Cheshire High School Girls swim team had enjoyed record setting success, yet they need to go to neighboring towns during their swim season as the high school doesn’t ha...
