Homes in exclusive Cheshire subdivision mostly sold; latest sale tops $1.1m


CHESHIRE — Local builders say they’ve sold five of six lots in a subdivision off Cook Hill Road with the most recent home going for more than $1.1 million.

Tony Napolitano and his son Andrew Napolitano bought the property two years ago. Tony Napolitano said they usually construct one or two houses at a time but liked the location of the former horse farm off Cook Hill Road and decided to build a subdivision, known as Farm Meadows at Cook Hill. Models start around $800,000 for about 3,000 square feet of living space on two-acre lots.

“It’s an outstanding subdivision,” he said. “It’s a pretty special piece of property.”

The houses, several of which are still under construction, are northeast of Cook Hill Road and border 30 acres of town-owned open space. To the south of the road is another larger portion of more than 180 acres of open space.

“It’s absolutely beautiful in there,” said Tony Napolitano.

Two of the houses are occupied. Two are under construction and work on a third is about to begin.

EJ Kurtz III, Planning and Zoning Commission chairman, said the town approved the subdivision a few years ago with a sidewalk waiver for one side of the street where there weren’t any houses. One neighbor asked that the developers clean up debris such as tires left by the former farmer. Kurtz said the developers agreed to that.

Million-dollar homes aren’t unknown in Cheshire but the Farm Meadows homes were on the high end.

“There’s a few that are like that,” Kurtz said.

Tony Napolitano said he and his son aren’t the biggest developers in town but said they’ve got good relationships as life-long Cheshire residents. That makes people comfortable with selling land to them.

“There seems to be a decent trust factor with us,” he said.
