CTAA Property Spotlight – Huntington Woods

Huntington Woods is a 280 mixed-income apartment community nestled in 20 acres in the heart of Bristol, Connecticut. This year, the community celebrates 30 years and proudly offers one, two and three-bedroom garden-style apartment homes. The community was developed in 1990 and was purchased by Winn Residential in 2012, in conjunction with the financing of low-income housing tax credits (LIHTC) along with HOME funding through Housing of Urban Development (HUD).

Huntington Woods offers 96 one-bedroom, 144 two-bedroom and 40 three-bedroom apartments within 17 residential buildings. Of these apartment homes, 200 are offered to households with incomes at or below 60% of the area median income (AMI). A total of 28 of the apartments on-site are designed to accommodate households in need of accessibility options for mobility, hearing and vision impairments. The single-entry apartments each feature a private patio or balcony, central air, dishwashers and washer dryer hook-ups. On location, residents can enjoy the use of the 24-hour fitness and laundry facilities, seasonal swimming and barbecue area and year-round basketball court and playground.


The commitment to excellence through property development and residential management has created a community where individuals and families are proud to call it home. In addition to the on-site amenities, the strong team at Huntington Woods is the true key to its success with its residents. The entire staff at Huntington Woods prides itself on providing superior service through the attentive setup and maintenance of residents’ homes, offering same-day maintenance service and on-call emergency assistance. The team continues to improve the communication amongst residents, during the pandemic, by utilizing the Resident Community portal and daily virtual check-ins with residents, to develop a sense of community at a time when isolation was at the forefront. Along with portal communication, the team created virtual scavenger hunts for residents, sending care packages and small treats to all residents’ doors in lieu of a holiday event.


Beyond individual and collective achievement, the team created contactless application processes and virtual/touchless touring options, bringing the average occupancy from 93% to 98% during the current national pandemic. Huntington Woods was selected by the mayor’s office and school system to participate in a food drive to deliver food to all school-aged children.

The Huntington Woods team takes pride in being the premier residential community of the greater Bristol area. The residents enjoy a beautiful country setting along with the convenience of being close to shopping, restaurants and major highways, including I-84, Route 72 and Route 6. Huntington Woods continues year after year to provide an excellent home and outstanding service to residents.
