Map of Belle Haven

Belle Haven is a captivating neighborhood. With roots of once being a resort community still present in everyday life, Belle Haven used to be a popular summer escape for affluent New Yorkers.

All in all, it was a real estate venture brought forth in 1884 by Greenwich luminaries Thomas Mayo, Robert Bruce and Nathaniel Witherell and designed by Frederick Olmsted’s landscape architecture firm.

This “residence park” once sported shared amenities such as a tennis club, beach, pavilion, and a casino, but over time would-be parks and a golf course have been redesigned for homes to accommodate the growing population of Greenwich and Fairfield County.

Belle Haven’s location is close to the central town of Greenwich, in addition to having easy access to the Greenwich Metro-North railroad station and the beach activities of Long Island Sound.

Like Tuxedo Park in New York, Belle Haven was once a Victorian-era invention but over the years has seen renovations in both size and aesthetic to fit in with the changing times. Belle Haven’s historic look was a far cry from its modern day presence, however, as residents will be the first to tell you that they take interest in appreciating the rich historical presence and have even taken to restoring their homes’ old Victorian ancestry.

It’s even been said that from an architectural standpoint, the Belle Haven area has come full circle in regards to its historical grandeur!
