A residential community with an industrial past, Glenville is revered for its beautiful homes and down-to-earth feel. Its name refers to the community’s unique landscape – a narrow valley winding along the Byram River.
People flock to the area for its laid-back vibe and wealth of housing. The neighborhood features plenty of smaller single-family homes and multifamily complexes, making it popular with first-time homeowners. The housing stock also includes larger estates and amenity-rich condos.
For recreation in community, head to the Bendheim Western Greenwich Civic Center. Located in central Glenville, the hotspot boasts ball fields, playgrounds, and acres of parkland.
What makes Glenville so special is its artful blend of old with new. The historic American Felt Company’s gothic revival building now houses a handful of restaurants, condos, and office space. The historic district’s Queen Anne, Romanesque revival, and Italianate buildings stand alongside a bustling community center with trendy shops, restaurants, and markets.
