Laurel Hill delivers in-demand workforce housing to the predominantly single-family market of Fairfield County. Located in the Four Corners’ neighborhood, Laurel Hill is an important component of the Town of Brookfield’s plan to create a pedestrian-friendly, mixed-use neighborhood with walkable services, restaurants, and shopping.
Three new buildings, each comprised of 24 two-bedroom units, were constructed for the Laurel Hill community. Each apartment features an open-concept floor plan, over-sized windows, spacious bedrooms with walk-in closets and modern kitchens equipped with Energy Star appliances. Residents also enjoy the use of a spacious resident lounge, computer center, laundry facilities and on-site property management.
With stunning, vibrant views of the Berkshire Mountains southern foothills, Laurel Hill provides residents with a picturesque, quiet environment while retaining accessibility to local amenities and the greater Brookfield community via routes 7 and 202. It’s also a popular housing option for commuters who work in New York City but prefer the affordability and serenity of living in a suburban community. As Connecticut’s only 811 housing property, Laurel Hill is part of Dakota’s mission to improve the lives of the people who live in our communities.
Demand for the apartments, which opened in the spring of 2015, has been continuous. Young professionals, families, town employees and senior citizens all call Laurel Hill home.
