Stamford’s Dolphin Cove in the news

The tiny neighborhood of Dolphin Cove has more homes on the market than any other corner of Stamford — about 11 percent. It’s an anomaly I noticed a couple weeks ago while looking through Zillow maps, and one I thought might make an interesting story. Why would there be so much turnover in such a quiet, tranquil part of Stamford? It turns out, it’s a changing of the guard as residents who’ve called the Cove home for decades are moving on to new places. You can read all about that in today’s Advocate. 

While reporting on the story, I had the chance to tour a handful of homes on the peninsula (which feels more like a part of Nantucket or the Vineyard than Stamford) including one home at 136 Dolphin Cove Quay, which has since made a splash in the New York Times.

We weren’t able to use all the photos of this property (or others on the Cove) in today’s print version of the Advocate, so I thought I’d share some of them here.
