Welcome to Easton
A pastoral paradise in a convenient New England location.
Easton, Connecticut is one of Fairfield County’s smaller and more rural towns, home to more than twenty farms and acres of beautiful, undeveloped woodland. The town has a pastoral feel, offering residents a taste of country life that’s a short drive to shopping, restaurants, and major highways.
Homes in Easton can price into the millions—or close to it. Properties tend to be situated on more substantial acreage than other towns in Fairfield County, and New England Colonials and farmhouses are plentiful. Lots in the new Adirondack Estates development are currently available for luxury home construction.
