Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: The house is owned by an Interior Designer and her husband who were living and working in Fairfield County, CT when they fortuitously discovered a small waterfront home. She and her husband, born and raised in Connecticut on Fairfield Beach, fell in love with the idea of living directly on the water and chose to move from their home with botanical gardens in woodsy Wilton, Ct to the light and openness of the Connecticut shoreline. With her passion for design and his love of the water they envisioned an opportunity to exercise her talents and realize a shared dream.

Why the Owner Chose West Haven:
We believe that we have found a piece of paradise on the edge of busy metropolitan and suburban living because of its feeling of beauty, quiet, and privacy. There are twelve miles between the waterfront side of the home and the beckoning lights of the North Shore of Long Island -we say our front yard is a very long horizon on which dreams rise each day. The sounds of water and tidal breezes moving through the large sea pine shadowing our home and the ever present changes in light and water allow us to feel a belonging to nature's flow and simultaneously live in proximity to all the advantages and adventures of upscale living.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The beauty and peace of living on the water in new England's changing seasons and the opportunity for abundant outdoor adventures such as sailing, swimming, hiking, kayaking and sitting with friends by the artist crafted fire pit on the stone patio on cool moonlit nights.
