On the Market: Colonial in Easton offers idyllic setting, close to outdoor activities

The official arrival of summer on June 20 means more people will be looking to spend more time outdoors, particularly after being stuck inside for the entire season of spring.

The "idyllic gated compound" at 735 Sport Hill Road in the Easton Center neighborhood offers outdoor activities within its three-acre-plus parcel and beyond, according to its listing agent, who also refers to this property as a "country club retreat ... in one of Connecticut's Best Small Towns." Easton routinely is selected for inclusion on lists of best communities in which to live, compiled by various organizations and publications. In 2012 Easton was named the best small town in the state by Connecticut Magazine.
