Welcome to the quick tour of Hartford’s West End neighborhood, I’m Kyle Bergquist of Greater Hartford Real Estate TV.
Not surprisingly, the West End is on the western edge of the City. It’s made up of all the land north of Capital Avenue and West of the Park River’s north fork.
The neighborhood is mostly residential, with single-family and multi-family homes built in the very late 1800s and early 1900s. Apartments are available throughout the community in the numerous two and three-families, and in apartment buildings along the main roads.
Homes in the West End are some of the largest, and most architecturally detailed, in the City. One of the consistent themes is front porches, where you can find residents relaxing and socializing on summer evenings.
Many of life’s necessities are available at the retail shops along Farmington Avenue. There is also an impressively diverse collection of restaurants – some of the best in the City.
The Downtown business district is a short 2 miles away. Highway access is convenient, and bus lines provide an alternative to driving.
Finally, the West End has one of country’s premier public spaces in Elizabeth Park and its internationally renowned Rose Garden. The park also has annual gardens, sports courts, summer concerts, and many wonderful spaces to just relax and enjoy the moment.
For more information please feel free to reach out to us by phone or online. I’m Kyle Bergquist, and that’s the quick tour of Hartford’s West End.
