Belle Haven - area of Greenwich

The Greenwich Time newspaper describes Belle Haven as home to not one but two billionaires and some of Greenwich’s most elegant and priciest real estate.

This private waterfront community within Greenwich has long been an exclusive enclave. Around the turn of the last century, wealthy New Yorkers were transforming the Greenwich potato farms into large summer estates to escape the heat of New York City. The New Haven train line construction in the 1800s allowed easy transport from the congestion of New York City to the open space and fresh air of Greenwich.

Belle Haven with its exquisite views across Long Island sound and proximity to the train became a highly desired location for grand summer homes. 

Over time the convenience of a 35 mile trip to midtown Manhattan became a strong  incentive for families to move to Greenwich full time, laying the foundations of the commuter culture.

In addition to the large estate homes on the water, Belle Haven is home to the highly acclaimed chef Thomas Henkelmann  and his Homestead Inn with its coveted title Relais Gourmands awarded in 2002 and its four Mobil Stars awarded every year since 1999.
