Fort Saybrook Monument Park is a special spot because of its history. This park dates back to 1635 and is well worth visiting because of the living history you'll find in the area.
Old Saybrook's waterfront location on the Connecticut River makes the town an outstanding place to store a boat. Living here means having numerous marinas at your fingertips, providing a wonderful lifestyle with ocean access.
Throughout Connecticut, properties are taxed using a mill rate. In this formula, one mill equals one dollar of taxes due per $1,000 of assessed property value. For example, if a town has a mill rate of $23.45, it means that the homeowner must pay $23.45 for every $1,000 of property value annually.
The assessed rate of a home in Connecticut is 70% of its appraised value. So if you own a home with an estimated worth of $500,000, you'll only have to pay property taxes on $350,000 of it.
Living in Old Saybrook will bring plenty of positives to your life, as the town is a full-on beach destination that has a few sandy areas usually frequented by locals. It's also close enough to major cities that you can reach them quickly, yet far enough that you can spend your time away from the bustle.
