Manchester Connecticut

Sentry Real Estate

The Manchester office was opened in 1986. Sentry agents in this office serve buyers and sellers in the greater Manchester area and other locations in north-central Connecticut.

 

The town of Manchester is located about 7 miles East of Hartford. Known as “The City of Village Charm,” or “Silk City” - Manchester Real Estate is made up of single family homes, multi-family homes, condominiums and many apartment complexes. There is a great range of styles and prices in many great neighborhoods.

 

Manchester, which was once home to The Cheney Mills, is rich in history. Once the biggest Silk Mills in the country, the former Mills and many of the Cheney homes are still occupied and many of the mills have been converted in housing.

 

Manchester has 10 elementary schools, one 6th grade academy, and one public high school. It is also home to Howell Cheney Techical School, East Catholic High School and Manchester Community Technical College.

 

Manchester has so many things to do. Within it lies The Shoppes and Buckland Hill, for shopping, several large “box” stores, and many restaurants. There are also quite a few parks, the largest and most notable is Wickham Park, located on the border of East Hartford. The Charter Oak Greenway (a large paved bicycle trail) runs through Manchester and is part of National “Rails to Trails” program. With all the things do to in Manchester, and the variety of housing, Manchester truly is a great place to call home.
