It's cozy, comfortable and full of friendly neighbors. Quinnipaug Hills feels like you are camping 24/7. Smells like fireplaces all the time as all units have one or a wood burning stove. Well water is an issue- very hard water plus klebsiella issues. Check EWG water quality reports. Would need a filter for showering/laundry and bottled water to drink...seriously QH, this is the big reason I wouldn't live here. I wouldn't want to brush my teeth with water that would make me ill. Snow removal was not ideal in '10-'12 when we lived here, people were late for work waiting for plows. I would have paid more in HOA fees to be able to get to work. Hopefully this has been remedied. The former tennis court area has still not been finished. HOA fees should have factored in those very necessary changes...since its just a deserted tennis court I wouldn't want to drive by here every day. There is no pool or clubhouse...explain the fees? All landscaping and snow removal? I am glad we rented and didn't buy the unit, but would consider going back if a few things were changed. ... more

Yes, I have two properties listed that will do a Rent with purchase option. They are both located in Southbury and one has an in-law apartment attached to the 4 bedroom home. It's a very nice brick ranch, listed for $400,000. I also have a very nice 3 bedroom, well maintained home that will do a Rent/Option. That is listed for #329,000. That home is in a pretty setting and a very convenient location to schools, highway and shopping areas. I also have a rent/option possibility coming up in Middlebury. Please feel free to contact me at 203 228-0393 for more information. Thank you, Marian ... more

Happy New Year ! I am sorry that you are having health problems. I hope that 2014 is a better year for you. I too was a single mother of 3 children for many years. I understand that you want to feel safe. The average rent in Waterbury for a 3 bedroom is anywhere between $800-$1000. This was always out of my price range....way out of my price range ! There are several apt complexs that base your monthly rental paymant on what your income is. This may be an option for you. Feel free to give me a call 203-437-1667 ... more

Sounds like a beautiful home Maryann. I will keep this in mind if I get a call for Meriden. The in-law set up is great!

Hi Jessica,

There are so many varied great neighborhoods within the Madison community. It really depends on what you are looking for and how much you want to spend on a house. Do you crave seclusion and privacy in the woods? Are you looking to live in the downtown area where you could walk to area restaurants and possibly walk your dog while picking up a cup of coffee? There are beachy neighborhoods that are on/near the water that are great too. If you are looking to relocate to Madison and want to search the area for the perfect house, please call me. I would love to show you everything that Madison has to offer you. You can email me at or call me at (203) 738-0418. Hope to hear from you soon. ... more

Len Nicoletti answered:
Yes there is. As per Connecticut State Statues there is normally a credit of $1,250 for a married couple and $1,000 for a single person per year. You might want to call the Hamden Tax office so as to get the specifics. When speaking to the tax consultant just ask them about the Circuit Breaker Program.

Good luck

I actualy just show a two of the condos at Claudia Dr a couple of weeks ago. They are nice for a couple or single person and are close to highways and major shopping . There are units to rent but for the price of the condo it does not makes sense not to buy. I can not speak for Crestwood though. ... more
