Enjoy the In-Town Lifestyle in the Heart of Ridgefield

Living close to a walkable downtown creates the opportunity for a truly unique lifestyle that harkens back to small town living with close community connections. Imagine being able to grab a bite to eat or run an errand within footsteps from your home, free of stressful traffic and full of friendly human interaction. Enjoy the fresh air, walk the dog, get a sneak peek at a new boutique opening, and have a pleasant conversation with local shop owners. Suddenly, your day is much more enjoyable.

Adding to the community connection, you are just a short walk away from traditional annual events in every season. From the Spring Stroll, to summer’s art shows and CHIRP concerts, to the Tree Lighting Ceremony and Holiday Stroll, highlights the holiday season. And in the evening year-round, walk to live theater, concerts, movies, and stellar restaurants. It would be nice to get to experience everything that’s happening so close to home, wouldn’t it?

This scenario is completely possible in Ridgefield. Right in the heart of our quaint downtown Main Street is The Elms Association. What was once a beloved landmark on Main Street known as the Elms Restaurant and Inn, has now become a luxury development that has maintained the charm of the historic property at this central location.
