Hubbard Heights is an older neighborhood that, 50+ years ago was an area that attracted medical personnel from nearby Stamford Hospital. There is a nice Hubbard Heights neighborhood association, and I believe it still may have its annual picnic in the summer. Many of the homes are older, large homes, with colonial, tudor, and ranch style, among others. To the West lies the City's E. Gaynor Brennan golf course, one of two city-owned golf courses. To the South is the hospital. Within the community is a parochial school and convent. The streets flanking the neighborhood on the North and South are through streets, and busy much of the time, so getting in and out is easy. To the East is Scalzi Park, with lighted tennis and basketball courts, and Cubeta Stadium, abutting Hubbard Heights. The community is on Stamford's West Side, just a few blocks from elementary and middle schools, and the downtown.
This is a fine area, with some respected history. Property appreciation can be expected to be reasonably good, providing the older homes are well maintained. As with anywhere else, a 75 year old home, neglected for years, may be expected to become a money pit. Choose wisely.
