Property descriptiona rare waterfront opportunity
Waterfront-A rare opportunity! This is only one of a few homes that have an ocean view of Long Island Sound from the front and a bay view from the back. Breathtaking views from every room. This home is located in the highly prestigious Sachem's Head Association and steps away from the Sachem's Head Yacht Club. Tennis/paddle courts, a private beach, kayak rack, and boat launch are included in the association. Smell the salt air, watch the sailboats drift by, and fish off of your own dock. Walk down the street and go clamming for dinner. Have your morning coffee on the back deck and watch the incredible activity in the bay: osprey, bald eagles, blue, white heron, crabs, and cormorant all searching for breakfast. When the temperatures rise take a dip in the water and rinse off in the outside shower. In the evening have a glass of wine while you watch the exceptional sunsets on the second level deck. Perhaps plan a special event in the large yard that overlooks a Monet style bridge. The 3315 sq ft home was boathouse. The house is bathed in sunlight, has four bedrooms and a loft, two and a half bathrooms. The master bedroom overlooks Long Island Sound, two of the bedrooms face the bay, one has a small private deck and the last has views of the ocean and bay. The kitchen has cherry cabinets, granite countertops, a Dacor cooktop and oven, Miele refrigerator, and dishwasher. The living room has a cozy fireplace to enjoy your winter evenings after a long brisk walk along the waterfront. The home offers a professional style office with built-ins, an attached library, and one of the best views! Many updates have been done: partial cedar shingle residing, updated bathrooms, Anderson windows in the master, fourth bedroom, loft, dining room, and family room, sprinkler system, fence, landscaping, second-floor deck, most of the floors have been refinished, mini-split on the first floor. Master and two of the bedrooms have old forest pine wood floors. Enjoy a permanent propane generator so your life is never interrupted. Only three miles to the historic town center; the Guilford Green (a "favorite town green" according to Yankee magazine) is host to various boutique shops and restaurants. Minutes to major routes, highway, and commuter rail. 90 minutes to NYC and 2.5 hours to Boston.
