Branford cottage description



Saturday is the changeover day for the minimum week long stay, ideal for a couple. Summertime: bask in the sun on the beach, or curl up with a book in the shade on the garden patio. Autumn: walk the shores, or sit by the fire. Spring: enjoy the bloom of flowers and the salt air. Every season has its own delights here on the Connecticut shore.

Halfway between New Your City and Boston, and situated at the back of a cluster of houses at 98 Limewood Avenue, the Ennis Cottage is away from street and traffic noise, but within 200 feet of a private beach. The cottage has been completely remodeled and is tastefully furnished and supervised by the owners.

In a minute one can sit with a panoramic view of Long Island Sound, between Haycock point and Indian Neck, looking out toward Green Island and the Thimble Islands. Fishing and boating are excellent.

A small park within one mile offers tennis, basketball, and a children's playground. A marketplace, liquor store, laundry, and three restaurants are within walking distance, and a larger mall and churches are with a few miles. The Branford Green hosts evening concerts, the Guilford Green that has a five acres of lawn, with Music on weekends, live Shakespeare on stage, surrounded by antique buildings with shops each unique and different from each other. Both towns offer Day Spas, Ice Cream and Chocolate Shop, Gift Stores, Clothing and Shoe Shops, Excellent Restaurants, Historical Homes, (third largest collection in CT) Museums, Orchards that offer fruit picking throughout the season. Local Farms offer Fresh organic produce, and August offers The Guilford Fair c.1859.

15 minutes away come aboard a narrated cruise of the Thimble Islands, 18 minutes north to Clinton Outlet stores, 20 minutes away is the Essex Steam Train & River Boat that can take you to Gillette Castle State Park, or to the Opera House on the river, and 45 minutes you can try you hand at Fox Woods Casino or enjoy Mohegan Sun.

The entire house has been renovated. living room has wall-to-wall carpeting, a new full size futon and a love seat, several chairs, bureau, television, VCR, telephone, cathedral ceiling, wireless internet connection, and stove with gas log.

The kitchen is new and well equipped with gas stove, microwave and grilling oven, refrigerator, pots and pans, dishes, glasses, and silverware. The bedroom has a double bed with drawers beneath, closet, built in air conditioner. Wall-to-wall carpeting.

This is a completely remodeled cottage which is quiet, clean and comfortable. You will love the patio with picnic table, gas grill in the back garden, with tiki torches and flowers all around.

                  Year Purchased: 1971

                  About the owner: Retired professor and wife enjoying his grandkids, travel and being at the beach.

                  Why the Owner Chose Branford:
                  We bought in Branford because it was one half hour from our home, had a lovely beach and nice neighbors. We can go into New Haven to the theater, art galleries. Not far from the casinos and all our kids.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  Love clamming, sailing on the Terviseks, swimming. Branford has many excellent restaurants, from really classy to outside patio dining in a marina. The center has a town green which has many activities through the summer, plus interestng shops and stores. We are a half hour ride to the outlet shops. And it is quiet.
