West Mountain Estates is one of Ridgefield’s most sought-after neighborhoods. The original 160 acre estate was purchased by well-known Ridgefield homebuilder, Jerry Tuccio in 1959. Tuccio subdivided the property and the home building began in the mid 70’s and continued into the mid 80’s. Most West Mountain homes are traditional New England colonials with some ranch style homes mixed in. A few luxury homes have been added over the years including one just finished on Calvary Court.
Sometimes called Eleven Levels (for the main road running through the sub-division), West Mountain Estates is very conveniently located on the west side of Ridgefield, close to town and near the New York border. This westside location makes it very desirable for those commuting to Westchester (Pepsi, IBM, and more).
One of the most popular amenities of the West Mountain neighborhood is the community Recreation Center. This outdoor facility springs to life each year on Memorial Day. The beautifully maintained facility sports an outdoor pool, tennis courts, basketball courts, baseball diamond and soccer field.
