After having lived at Riverbend Estates for our first year, we can say that moving here has been one of the best decisions we ever made. We love our new home and are so very comfortable with all of the thought and care that the Dalling team has given to the floor plan (one floor living and spacious), superior construction, landscaping, and layout of the community. Thank you. These home are so energy efficient. We especially enjoy the open space behind us and all the wildlife we often see, so very quiet and peaceful. The town of Oxford has been welcoming and has a lot to offer its residents; parks such as Jackson Cover are good places to relax and enjoy on the river. Convenient access to shopping is close by, and the beauty of the Housatonic River delights us every day. We feel so fortunate, our neighbors here are the best, so welcoming, helpful, and there is a true community spirit. We love coming home and seeing our beautiful mountain, it gives us a sense of well being!

Debbie, Dick & Jerry,
As you know we decided it was time to move back to Connecticut from Maine to be near our kids and grandchildren and we couldn't have made a better decision with RiverBend Estates. It's not typical condo living; we have our own home in a great neighborhood with wonderful neighbors and no snow to shovel!
Oxford is the closest thing to Maine you could find in New Haven County and we found it. Sure we're not looking at Bass Harbor every morning but the Housatonic is right there when we pull out of RiverBend Drive!
The pride you all have in RiverBend is apparent in our well built homes, and all the care given to our beautiful surroundings. We love RiverBend and just want to say “Thank you for everything”!

I have lived here since May 2018.
Dick, Gerry & Debbie, the development team, can not do enough for the residents. They are accommodating, concerned and want the best experience possible for the potential buyer and residents.
It is a quiet, well run development unlike any other I looked at.
Joyce and I wanted to take a few minutes to let you and the entire Dalling team know how happy we are here at Riverbend Estates. As you know we are approaching our second year living here in this new active adult community. We both love our home which was built with our own floor plan design. It was a pleasure working with Gerry Glover your project manager, his patience and knowledge made our home’s outcome very special.
The community which is still developing has attracted 6 wonderful families so far, and we have all gotten to know each other even better as a result of the wine and cheese social gatherings sponsored by the Riverbend Estate sales team. We are all looking forward to meeting some of the new prospective buyers who have shown a serious interest in our community very soon at future gatherings.
The main reason we bought into an adult community is to be free of yard work and snow removal. The services we receive are far beyond what we expected, and the low common fee we pay is a bonus to our budget. The maintenance free living you advertise is very real here at Riverbend.
Another bonus to our budgets has been the low utility bills. The homes are built so well with all the energy saving related products that the house holds the cool air in the summer and the heat during these very cold winters.
The residents were asked by our developer Dick Dalling what we would like to see here at Riverbend for the Community. We thought a Gazebo would be nice for the residents to use. Not only did he agree, he purchased an oversized Gazebo built to blend in with the homes and also had it screened in. We now have a great place to gather with neighbors or family, and the huge picnic table provided also makes entertaining outdoors a pleasure. The entire Dalling family has been fantastic to work with and we have all become friends.
It is a pleasure living here surrounded by beautiful homes and a private setting with natural treed borders and beautiful mountain views with miles of walking trails. Thank you all for making Riverbend a truly wonderful place to retire and enjoy life.

From the moment we entered RiverBend Estates and the model homes, we knew that we had found a “special place”. Our friendly and caring neighbors here have made us feel very welcomed and comfortable right from the beginning.
All of our questions and concerns were addressed promptly and courteously by the developers and project manager. Together, they have provided us with well-designed homes of the highest quality, each with its own uniqueness.
Living in RiverBend Estates is truly a dream come true.

We have been here for almost one year and wanted to say how very happy we are that we bought at Riverbend.
The Riverbend team has been great in providing us with the best services especially during this most difficult of winters. We are very glad to be here.

For over two years Marilyn and I visited 55+ communities every Sunday afternoon. We kept coming back to Riverbend Estates as it was the only place we could find that offered us two bedrooms and two baths on the same floor and a beautiful room to display our grand piano (in front of a bow window!) This was important to us. We found the perfect place for us at Riverbend!
This was just the beginning of the amenities Riverbend had to offer: wonderful new friends, low common charges (we don't have the extra charges for a swimming pool and club house), beautiful surroundings (you should see our "mountain" of trees that surround us in the fall!), accommodations that make our life so much easier (snow removal, beautiful landscaping (which is cared for every Friday- just in time for entertaining on the week-end) and most of all the Dalling team that has been so accommodating and willing to assist and help if there is a concern. Many thanks to all of you!
We are now in our second year here and love it. If we can be of any help in talking to perspective new residents we would be so happy to share the enjoyable experiences which are ours since moving here.

After 38 years in our home in Fairfield, we decided it was time to look into active adult communities throughout Southern Connecticut. We looked at every community we could find, and the road always led back to Riverbend Estates. We were looking for a small, close-knit community, but also one with detached homes with plenty of space in between. Riverbend was exactly what we were looking for. It was close enough to our friends and family in Fairfield County, but also provided the quiet, rural charm of Oxford and its surrounding communities. The Riverbend team was with us every step of the way, from choosing our lot to picking out the custom touches we wanted for our home. We were impressed with the flexibility we had in choosing exactly what we wanted for each room of the home. It's nice to come home to such pristine, natural surroundings every day. The waterfalls and the surrounding nature preserve are by far our favorite part of the outdoor landscape at Riverbend. It's also nice to look around the inside of our home and admire the expert craftsmanship and convenient amenities offered as part of each home package. Everyone ar Riverbend, from the staff to the neighbors, has been a pleasure to get to know, and we are really enjoying our new home!
