Westbrook house description

Located in the private Cedar Crest/Chapman Beach Association neighborhood of Westbrook, CT, this magical 2 BR beach cottage is perfect for a couple or small family (4 max). Only steps away from a beautiful private beach perfect for swimming, boating, kayaking or other water activities, you will feel totally relaxed and at home here.

After a day at the beach, step into the lovely enclosed outdoor shower with river rocks, ferns, IPE floor, and changing area with teak bench.

The first floor “great room” combines the living room area with comfortable furniture, gas fireplace and built-ins for flatscreen TV, DVD and IPod player with a modern kitchen and intimate dining area.

Two bedrooms on the main floor share 1 -1/2 bathrooms. On the second floor, a large work/study space with a skylight provides a work/study space and an extra place for a restful night.

Situated on an extra-large, professionally landscaped lot with water views, stone wall and patio, you'll have room to stretch out and play on the large front and side lawns. Store your bikes and kayaks in the separate garden shed.

The cottage is in excellent condition with new and antique furnishings, gleaming hardwood floors, air conditioning and Maytag and GE kitchen appliances and washer/dryer.

The kitchen is well equipped for those who love to cook and includes a side-by-side refrigerator with through the door watervdispenser, quiet dishwasher, microwave, glass-top range, in-sink disposal, toaster oven, coffee maker, blender, plenty of dishes and glassware, including wine glasses, and quality stainless steel flatware.

The house is located within 5 minutes of interstate 95 providing easy access to all that CT has to offer, yet it feels totally away from it all.

This Chapman Beach area home can be your vacation home this summer or home during the fall;/winter/spring as an academic rental

The owners are non smokers and looking for the same in a renter.

Sorry, no pets.

TWO WEEK MINIMUM IN SUMMER.

              Year Purchased: 2007

              About the owner: We fell in love with the house and location...total relaxation.

              Why the Owner Chose Westbrook:
              Being here is magical. The house and its setting are so relaxing. Friendly neighbors. Proximity to Hammonasset State Park-- a beautiful place to walk, run, bird, picnic, swim, etc. We are close enough to several major cities, yet away from it all.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Private beach association of just a few families on a dead end road provides privacy, or company, as you like.
