The Village at Oxford Greens is a 55+ active adult community that makes the most of its bucolic Northeastern setting as well as its central location between downtown Boston and New York City.

Built on the site of a former horse farm, The Village at Oxford Greens is a Del Webb community in Connecticut that opened in 2004. It overlooks a tree-lined, 18-hole championship golf course. Veteran architect Mark Mungeam designed hole layouts and putting green surfaces with homage to the golden age of golf and some of the top-rated courses throughout the United States and Scotland. Village residents receive discounted rates at the course, which also features an elegant clubhouse, a pro shop and a cafe with an award-winning chef at its helm.

Homes at The Village at Oxford Greens are nestled in a peaceful, wooded setting and are available in both single-family and attached styles. Upon completion, the property will contain around 835 residences that are currently available on a new and resale basis. Open floor plans, both ranch and loft construction, range from 1,657 to 2,630 square feet. Homebuyers can choose from a full range of cutting-edge options like modern finishes, Energy Star appliances, gourmet kitchens, spa-style bathrooms, walk-in closets and private decks.

Top features include generous indoor and outdoor spaces for relaxing and entertaining,  and staying in shape.

In addition to quality homes and pastoral surroundings, this property offers all of the latest amenities to support an active lifestyle. A 14,000 square-foot clubhouse comes complete with a catering kitchen and activity rooms, and is a gathering place for community members and dozens of social clubs. A lifestyle director coordinates meet-and-greets for new residents, organizes events, and manages day trips and travel. More than 50 active clubs and classes revolve around personal interests like music, quilting, fishing, photography and book discussion. Fitness-minded residents can make use of an on-site, state-of-the-art exercise center, an indoor pool, or head outside to well-maintained tennis and bocce ball courts, an outdoor pool, and hiking and biking trails.

Nearby Oxford is a small town of about 12,000 in New Haven County and is one of the fastest-growing areas in the state. Last year developers broke ground on the Oxford Town Center, which will be anchored by an upscale supermarket and feature boutique shops, offices and public green space once it’s finished.

Just beyond town residents will find farmsteads and pasture lands (there are about 47 working farms in the region), as well as nature parks and preserves. Highlights include the wooded Larkin Bridle Trail, a 10-mile hiking and horseback riding path built on a now-defunct railroad track. An additional 27 acres of nature trails and a quiet beachfront can be found at Jackson Cove state park on Lake Zoar. Oxford residents are welcome to purchase boat permits and seasonal passes or rent out an on-site pavilion. The lake is stocked with bass, perch, sunfish, and trout every year by Connecticut’s wildlife agency.

Oxford, and The Village at Oxford Greens, are conveniently located near I-84 and about an hour’s drive from both Boston and New York City. The town is also within easy reach of New Haven, Providence and the Block Island Sound.

Resort-style amenities, a charming pastoral setting and quality constructed homes with open layouts make The Village at Oxford Greens an easy choice for 55+ active adults.
