Westbrook cottage description

250 Ft. from West Beach. Family cottage circa 1889 with many original features including knob and tube wiring and brass pin windows. Upstairs connecting bedrooms with double beds open to a sleeping porch. Antique beds and furniture throughout. 250 ft to West Beach. Enclosed side porch entrance with indoor line to dry beachwear on wet days. Outdoor hot/cold shower with walkway. Large set tub in kitchen perfect for bathing babies and toddlers. Child safety gates provided.

Relax on the downstairs front porch to read in the evening (enclosed for rainy weather) and then enjoy the traditional final walk to the waterfront before turning in. Go back in time to another era when extended families gathered at these summer cottages and enjoyed card games, musical soirees, and more.

Attractions include concerts on the town green in Westbrook center, a pleasant walk including a short shady diversion of the old Boston Post Rd. off of Rte.1. The annual fife and drum corps muster takes place late in the summer. The nearby Essex Train Museum offers scenic train/boat tours with dining options. The historic Griswold Inn in Essex dates back to before the Revolutionary War and is down the street from the Connecticut River Museum. The Ivoryton Playhouse and the Goodspeed Opera house satisfy your theatre needs. Located between NYC and Boston, you can even take the train to Broadway. Outlet stores are right off of I-95 in Westbrook and in Clinton. Casinos are a drive away. Boat tours of the Thimble Islands are pleasant for all and a big hit with the kids (pirates!).

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1915

                  About the owner: I am a third generation owner of this property.

                  Why the Owner Chose Westbrook:
                  Purchased by my grandparents in 1915 when 'venturesome cottagers' began to populate the CT shoreline to escape the industrial atmosphere of the cities. A unique historical neighborhood with many of the original families still present.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  My grandmother visited beaches all along the CT shore in the early 20th century and settled on West Beach as the best beach. It is a lovely sand beach nestled into a crescent of the CT shoreline with a view of Long Island across the Sound. It is great for swimming and for children to play on the sand bars.
