Living in a Waterfront Victorian Home
Welcome to "The Victorian House," an iconic waterfront, landmark Victorian property built in 1875 located 15 minutes from New Haven and less than a two-hour drive to New York City.
The property is a rare gem with its seafront location boasting of unrivaled views of Thimble Islands and its 1.18 acres with mature plantings, including an orchard of apple, peach, plum, and cherry trees. Herb and berry gardens in the back provide a haven for birds, fireflies, bumblebees, and other wildlife, allowing the homeowner to listen to a symphony of birdsong and enjoy nature’s wonder. The deep wrap-around porch in the front makes the most of the spectacular water views and the feel of the sea breeze. Just steps away are the association beaches. Enjoy walking on a long sandy beach or avail of access to multiple other beaches and swimming areas with floats, diving board, and kayak racks.
The property also offers seven bedrooms with four full and one half baths. The pool was redesigned in 2015, and the pool houses with changing rooms, showers, bathroom, and mini-kitchen area were renovated in 2020. With over an acre of land, the property has space for a new tennis court or guest cottage.
The kitchen was custom designed and fitted in 2016 with cherry cabinetry and Stony Creek granite. The home also offers spacious and tastefully decorated bedrooms with plenty of natural light.
As an added bonus, this property does not require flood insurance.
