A Little About - CANDLEWOOD LAKE ESTATES

The unique charm of this tract lies in its unspoiled, uncrowded almost primitive natural beauty.  Candlewood Lake Estates comprises two magnificent lakes – Candlewood Lake and Emerald Lake a/k/a Green Pond – and hundreds of enchanting rolling hills, ancient hemlock forests and fine beaches.  The summer climate, too, leaves little to be desired: sunny skies unblemished by city haze, and cool evenings conducive to restful sleep.

Though it is located on 1 ½ hours from metropolitan New York, the complete seclusion you enjoy at Candlewood Lake Estates belies its proximity to the city and to all conveniences.  Through the y ears, nothing has been done to change the natural aspects of the lakes or the rustic woodlands.  Both lakes invite you to find new pleasures in your favorite sports of swimming, boating, sailing, fishing or waterSkiing.  Candlewood Lake, more than 18 miles long, with 6,000 acres of water and 85 miles of beautiful shorefront, reaches out with long fingers of water, offering a delightful variety of avenues for unrestricted boating.  Emerald Lake (Green Pond), spring fed and crystal clear, is kept free of power boats – only sailing or paddled craft are permitted, to maintain the prevailing cleanliness and quiet.  And for the nature lover, walks through the surrounding woodlands are perpetually rewarding.Bring your canoe for rest and relaxation!

The 400 acres which comprise Candlewood Lake Estates, include an eighty-five acre groves of hemlocks, many of which are now 125 to 150 feet high with trunks over three feet in diameter.  They are said to be among the largest in the nation.  Austrian-born Dr. Egon Neustadt, raised among the Alps, carefully developed this unusual tract, which now includes water front homes or homes with water views ranging from one-half to two acres.  All roads are established and give easy access to all sites.

 

Welcome to SHERMAN…..

 

Incorporated in 1802, the Town of Sherman, located in northern Fairfield County, combines rolling hills and scenic farms with an historic town center and recreational facilities on Candlewood Lake (Connecticut’s largest man-made lake). 

Candlewood encompasses 5420 acres with over 60 miles of shoreline.

The lake is approximately 11 miles long and 2 miles wide at its widest point.

Candlewood Lake offers boating, fishing and lakeside dining.  Sherman is also home to 

“The Club at River Oaks”, a new 350 Acre private community with luxury homes and home sites with 18-hole championship golf course. 

While residents cherish the wonderful natural resources and peaceful country charm of a small town, they also welcome the conveniences of modern living.  The younger generation can receive a solid academic foundation at the elementary/middle school

(K-8) located in Sherman, and older students have a choice of attending high school in several of the adjacent towns.  A Private nursery school is also located in town.  Residents also enjoy plenty of leisure and recreational activities at the well-kept athletic fields, tennis courts, jogging path and Town Park.  An appealing town beach and boat launch are provided in a secluded cove location.  An active historical society maintains records and memorabilia from Sherman’s long history, and the Sherman Players delight audiences with theatrical performances.

With an area of 23.5 square miles and a population of approximately 3800, it is hard to believe that Sherman is only 60 miles from Manhattan.  Close to NY Route 684 and CT Route 84, Sherman offers rural tranquility without isolation.  Sherman is also situated conveniently to 3 train stations with service into the New York areas, Brewster, Southeast and Wingdale/Pawling.

All this and one of the lowest tax rates in the state (Mill Rate 17.82)  for 2023-2024)

Come see and enjoy our lovely Town!
