South of the Merritt Parkway, is a beautiful suburban area of Greenwich. This Mid-Country neighborhood, has 2 acre zoning south of the Parkway and then one acre zoning and even smaller lots closer to town. Part of this bucolic area was once called the Golden Triangle. The Golden Triangle was bounded by North Street on the East, Round Hill Road on the West and the Merritt Parkway to the North. In 2014, a study by Stephen Higley of all the affluent areas in the USA, rated The Golden Triangle the nation’s wealthiest area in the country. Mid-Country has no exact boundaries and all of the homes in this area in and near the triangle are considered Golden.

A resident’s Testimonial
My first visit to Greenwich was in 1963. Jerry and I were students at Columbia University and he suggested we spend the weekend with his parents in the country where he had enjoyed his high school years. His home was in Deer Park and I thought it was the prettiest neighborhood in the world! His parents later moved to Khakum Wood and I discovered another prettiest neighborhood in the world! Jerry and I married in 1965 and in 1968, we moved to our own Mid-Country home on Clapboard Ridge Road. Built in 1928, we loved this home and we still do. Living in Mid-Country surrounded with large trees, grass, flowers and birds that make my heart sing, refreshes me every day. Our two children, dogs and cats have plenty of room to play.
The Round Hill Neighborhood Association
Membership in the Round Hill Association is a wonderful way to meet neighbors and to work on town issues that matter to us. The Round Hill Association serves as the glue between Back Country and Mid-country.
