Yes there are some adorable towns nearby.
Lower taxes & no school tax, great schools, and reasonable commute times. We have people from the boroughs move up this way for quality of life all the time. Sounds like Norwalk/Wilton/Ridgefield would be ideal for you (20 mins from Stamford). The thing to do is to set up a tour so you can see the towns and get a feel for them and what you can get for the price.
