Weston … Idyllic Country Privacy Convenient to the City
Weston is unique. Despite a location less than 50 miles from New York City, its rolling wooded hills will always be a bucolic retreat, where streams refresh the senses and privacy is a way of life. Active resistance to development has preserved one-third of Weston as open space and pristine nature preserve, also protecting the historic appearance of the town. Incorporated in 1787, Weston’s 20.8 square miles and population of 10,027 are governed by a Board of Selectmen. Farsighted town officials instituted two-acre zoning in the 1950’s, thereby maintaining a country atmosphere for the wide variety of lovely homes sheltered within Weston’s green quietude. Ranging from restored farmhouses to dramatic modern mansions, all enjoy the rustic privacy of a country retreat convenient to the metropolitan area. Sister city of Westport provides beaches and outstanding cultural stimulation.
