Classic New England town - 11/29/2010
We've lived in Simsbury for over 24 years, relocated here by choice because of the small town feel and quality of education. We made the right choice, cost of living is high but you get what you pay for. Any family looking for one of the best education systems in the country and a small town feel, take a look at Simsbury.[read more...]
nice, but expensive... - 6/22/2009
I lived in Simsbury for 1 1/2 yrs. The cost of housing as a whole is expensive. Homes are a bit more than surrounding areas, but the property tax is what drives up the cost. Last time I looked, the mill rate was around 35.0. Neighboring Suffield is about 24, with Windsor Locks even lower. It can really drive up a house payment. But there are a lot of amenities for the cost.
It's a beautiful little town, busy to drive through because it's on a main thoroughfare to points south. Lots of eateries, great place to walk, new kids park, summer concerts, ice cream, boutiques, good schools, wonderful library. But it is also Yuppieville. So if this appeals to you, great.
