Stamford is unique in that it has such a wide array of options. It is not a cookie-cutter city with houses that all look and feel the same. There are homes built in the 1920s and ’30s that are full of charm and character with original period features, as well as new construction homes with modern finishes. If you prefer something in between, there are capes and contemporary homes to suit everyones taste.

Stamford offers many different types of neighborhoods: the private, wooded surroundings of North Stamford; waterfront communities on Long Island Sound; and the high-rise, mid-city living of downtown. Housing ranges from luxury estates to cozy starter homes to maintenance-free condominiums, and the city also boasts a booming rental market.
