Modern country lifestyle in a Neighborhood setting

In the northwest corner of Connecticut, nestled in the scenic hills of Litchfield County lies the town of Woodbury with its legendary New England charm, fine restaurants, art galleries, exquisite antiques shops, historic homes, museums and equestrian centers. Woodbury provides a welcome slower pace yet offers its residents exciting day-to-day discoveries.

 

Nature lovers are drawn to Woodbury’s many trails and rivers. The Flanders Nature Center and Land Trust owns 19,000 acres in and around Woodbury, providing hiking and bird watching in its sanctuaries and a guarantee that the surrounding environment will be preserved for generations to come. Aisling Meadows has been built as a conservation development whereby 63 acres of land surrounding its beautiful home sites was gifted to Flanders Land Trust and designated as protected land.
