Centrally located in the state of Connecticut, WINCHESTER ESTATES is 20 miles west of Hartford off Route 229 (West Street) at 243 Churchill Street in Southington.
Nearby towns include Plainville, Cheshire, Bristol, Wolcott, and Berlin. Southington rests in a valley of two mountains on its east and west sides, situated along exits 28 through 32 of Interstate 84, exit 4 of Interstate 691, and bisected by Connecticut Route 10.
WINCHESTER ESTATES is nestled in an ideal location, one rich in history and beauty. Southington was formally established as a town separate from Farmington in 1779 and became a thriving community with the construction of dwellings, taverns, and stores. In 1767, Atwater's grist mill was established and by 1790, Southington had a button factory, saw mills, a brass foundry, and potash works.
While today it is a growing modern residential, commercial, and industrial community, Southington is proud of its history. To this day, Southington has the nickname of "The Apple Valley" due to the many orchards that still dot its landscape.
Due to Southington's popularity as a family suburb, the town has undertaken plans to expand all schools to accommodate the growing enrollment. The Southington school system is one of the larger districts in the state of Connecticut, where the education system is above average and the sports programs are outstanding.
Experience all that Southington has to offer for a lifestyle full of year-round health, wellness, relaxation, entertainment and fun. Throughout the changing seasons, the town hosts various annual events, such as the Apple Harvest Festival, jam packed full of visitors.
Fall is a great time to enjoy the town's beauty with the abundant amount of farms stands in town and foliage along the reservoir. In the winter, down hill ski at the Mount Southington Ski Area. Head over to the town green on warmer weather days for the weekly farmers market and live concert series, or enjoy a summertime thrill at the drive-in.
Spend quality time with the family at one of the movie theatres, bowling allies, Lake Compounce, or walking the Southington Linear Trail, suitable for both kids and adults. After a long day of work, pull up a seat to one of the many breweries or bars alongside some of your best of friends. Boost your mornings with deliciously crafted caffeinated drinks from the Lion's Den or Southington Coffee. If you're craving good food, the local favorites New Mill, Nataz, Flair, Cava and Anthony Jacks (just to name a few) won’t disappoint. And don't forget to take care of that sweet tooth at Sweet Mia's for dessert.
