Milford house description

Hillside Beach, a newly renovated house, is located on a one-way street which serves only the homes on three blocks. It is a safe, quiet place to completely relax on vacation. Walk a few feet down to the water's edge and watch the birds, boats and just enjoy the quiet lapping of the water on an inlet of Long Island Sound.

A beautiful life-guard beach is a short walk away and is surrounded by interesting mansions.

There is no need for a car. With a permit, bicycles can be carried on the Metro-North train which goes to Milford, within three miles of Hillside Beach. Several good restaurants are within walking or biking distance and many will deliver food to you at Hillside Beach. Local taxi's are available night and day.

Summer weather is generally warm with short rain showers to keep the flowers around the house blooming all summer.

Built on a hill overlooking the ocean, the awesome view from inside and outside is breathtaking.
The open floor plan --kitchen, living room, dining area with door out to the deck has a cathedral ceiling and tall windows with magnificent ocean views.

The King-size Master Suite has its own bath with shower and opens out to a patio and terraced garden. Two bedrooms, one with a trundle bed and one with a queen, share a full bath.
Entry to the home is on the lower level with a powder room, coat closet, and laundry room off the lovely entry hall. There is a one-car garage.

Hillside Beach is just an hour and a half from New York City and one hour from Hartford, CT. Airports serving the area are JFK, LaGuardia, White Plains, and Hartford. Amtrak stops in New Haven and Metro-North stops in Milford, just 3 miles from Hillside Beach.

Train statons from Milford and New Haven are served by several taxi companies. Guests may use the owner's 5% discount for Enterprise car rentals.

Easy access to Interstate 95 makes Hillside Beach convenient for driving

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: I am a Certified Financial Planner who specializes in Real Estate investing and hospitality. I have had resort properties in Breckenridge, Colorado, West Haven, Connecticut and owned and operated a Bed and Breakfast in Ames, Iowa near Iowa State University, my alma mater. I provide consulting for clients who aspire to owning bed and breakfasts and investment real estate properties. I have lived in various parts of the U.S., traveled to many countries, and enjoyed guests from all over the world who stayed at my B&B and now visit Haven Retreat and Hillside Beach, my vacation house is in West Haven,CT.

                  Why the Owner Chose Milford:
                  After owning several vacation properties in the Rocky Mountains, I wanted to have a vacation home near the ocean. This location is a secluded residential area between Milford and West Haven, CT and is far enough from major noisy roads and close enough to provide services and retail for all my needs. Several good restaurants are nearby and many others are within a few miles. Yale University provides cultural entertainment and has world-renown medical facilities. This seems like the perfect vacation spot for me and to share with like-minded families and individuals.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  I enjoy the closeness to the ocean and the calm I feel when I look out at the water. The one-way street serving just the neighborhood adds to the calming effect. Everything in the house is brand new and the house is so efficiently furnished that clutter is not necessary. Besides the water view from the front of the house, the lovely yard behind the house lends itself to help me feel at one with nature. A cozy fire on a rainy or snowy day makes me feel at home on a quiet weekend away from city stress. Hillside Beach is an excellent retreat winter or summer.
