Exploring – West Hartford – Elmfield Street

Explore the Elmwood neighborhood of West Hartford on this ride down Elmfield Street.

Homes in this neighborhood were mostly built just after World War II in the Colonial, Cape Code, and Ranch styles.

Most of the neighborhood is single-family, though there are some 2-family properties on the main streets. The single-family homes generally have between 1,000 and 1,800 sqft of living space.

Lots are about 0.20 acres, so the homes are close together. There is a mix of attached and detached garages, and many basements are finished to some degree to increase the usable living space.

The maintenance history of the homes is the main driver of value. Prices vary from the $100,000s to the low $300,000s depending on the size, features, and condition of the property.

The neighborhood has its own commercial area with retail and restaurants. Our favorite pizza place and bakery are within walking distance.

Elmwood is in the southern portion of West Hartford. It has good access to the Westfarms shopping area, West Hartford Center, and I84. Downtown Hartford is about 15 minutes away by car.
