Enjoy spectacular views (with a private beach) from this 1836 broken-back saltbox, situated next to an 1801 lighthouse, only fifty-five feet off Long Island Sound.
This period home, in a quiet neighborhood, has 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, 3 fireplaces, a beautiful sun porch, and a gorgeous patio.
Guests have access to the entire first floor, including the outdoor patio, outdoor shower and private beach. The kitchen is located on the first floor and includes access to the microwave, coffeemaker, refrigerator, range, rice cooker, pots/pans, utensils, etc. The washer and dryer are located on the second floor. Off-street parking is available for up to two vehicles. I can also accommodate bicycles in my garage.
The surrounding area offers sailing, cycling, parks, and access to historic sites (e.g., Mystic Seaport, Harkness Park, Fort Trumbull, Fort Griswold, Ocean Beach, etc.). Minutes from Connecticut College, the Coast Guard Academy and Mitchell College; one hour from Yale and Brown University; and the site of the oldest collegiate sporting event in the country, the Harvard-Yale Regatta.
