"Looking for a rural experience just minutes from the hustle and bustle of Stamford? Wildlife still abounds along the rolling hills and shady lanes of North Stamford. Low-density zoning protects privacy, while hills and woods give a bucolic backdrop. The area has only a few restaurants and shops along Long Ridge Road, but with easy access to the restaurants and culture downtown, it's a desirable compromise. Homes in North Stamford are generally on larger lots than in neighboring parts of the city. Ranches and contemporary houses are plentiful. "
