Ledyard subdivisions come in all shapes and sizes but none is as unique as Berwick. The 18 wooded home-sites of Berwick were developed as a subdivision in 1973. With 150 acres, each lot contains about 5 acres, although several are much larger. Most of the homes were custom built, which allows for a wide range of styles including traditional colonials, contemporaries and even a log home.
When you ask someone from Ledyard where Berwick is located, it is most likely they have never heard of it. Although Berwick is located within a very short drive of the Mystic I-95 exit, it is tucked away off the quiet end of Gallup Hill Road, where most Ledyard/Gales Ferry residents seldom travel. Berwick is made up of three streets, Avebury Berwick, Chatham Berwick and Brentford Berwick.
Many of the residents of Berwick are original owners and homes are not often for sale in the subdivision. When the original subdivision lots were being sold, Berwick was described as “an exceptional community for very private people who enjoy peaceful seclusion in a rustic setting.” This is still true almost 40 years later.
