Branford house description

Summerset House, a direct waterfront and private beach home in the exclusive Pawson Park area of beautiful, seaside Branford, CT. This home is perfectly maintained, well landscaped and tastefully furnished, ideal for a fun-filled vacation or some well deserved downtime. Your greatest challenge will be deciding where to spend your time! You could take a dip in the in-ground heated pool or in the warm waters of Long Island Sound. Then again, you could sit poolside under a cooling umbrella with an even cooler refreshment. Or sit on the waterside deck watching the boats sail by. Better yet, take a break on the upper deck and enjoy the ocean's calm. For sure you'll want to be on this deck when the sun sets. You'll see colors you didn't know existed in nature. When it's time for indoors you'll be able to relax and entertain with over 3000 sq ft of living space including a freshly remodeled Viking appliance kitchen with a cozy breakfast nook and marble seating counter. Need some time to yourself? No problem- plenty of rooms to find your own quiet time for a good read with a stemmed glass. When it comes time to burn off a few calories you could use the exercise room but it would be a shame to miss the opportunity to take a run or walk through the ocean community. So scenic and peaceful.

And, while staying at Summerset House, be sure to visit local Stony Creek, the Thimble Islands, Mystic Seaport and the casinos (about 45 minutes). Plus, you will want to take in all of the many area boutiques, shops, antique stores and especially the outstanding and highly acclaimed restaurants of Branford. Nestled in the center of Connecticut's famed Long Island shoreline, Summerset House is the perfect place to be any time of year. Only 15 minutes from New Haven, you're never far from major shopping and outlets, airports, railway stations, museums and Yale University.

Summerset House, simply the ideal place to unwind and have a little fun... all four seasons!

Available for long and short term rentals (monthly, weekly, weekends, daily)
