Car: Recommended

There’s plenty to do within a 30-45 minute drive. Delight in our area's art galleries and theatre, history, museums, outlet shopping and village antiquing, farm stands and orchards, challenging golf, beachcombing, kayaking, boating, fishing, excellent local restaurants - even a steam train and riverboat to take you back in time for dinner or a daytrip. You’ll be within 45 minutes of the Foxwoods or Mohegan Sun casinos, featuring top entertainment as well as gaming year round, and less than an hour from historic Mystic Seaport. And a quick two hour trip away from either NYC or Boston.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Two sisters inherited this property in 2008 from our dear dad, a builder who constructed it himself from the foundation up in 1954. The house was renovated and refurnished in 2007-8, but we kept some of the loving touches Dad built in, like the vintage main bath and the knotty pine kitchen cabinetry. We spent our own childhoods in this neighborhood and on this beach, and we hope your family makes memories here as fond as ours. As dog lovers ourselves, we welcome well-cared for, well-behaved pets (per our pet agreement) - they'll enjoy their time here too!

Why the Owner Chose Clinton:
Beach and marsh views, a variety of birds and wildlife, and good neighbors.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
A hilltop setting with plenty of privacy and room to play sets this property apart from most beach cottages in the local area, which are crowded together on tiny lots down near sea level. The house has a large front yard and parking well off the street for 3 cars with room to spare. Beach access is deeded and shared only with our longtime neighbors, offering an exceptional degree of privacy.
