Madison house description

A true GEM! Our home is directly on the shore of the Long Island Sound. Built in 1921 by our grandparents, it features a beautiful wrap around porch where you can relax with friends, have a drink and watch the spectacular summer sunsets. Walk out the front door down the steps to the beach where the water invites you for a swim. Stroll the shoreline, kayak or canoe and enjoy the tranquility of the the water.
We have 6 bedrooms. Fall asleep to the sound of waves in the 2 front bedrooms that offer double beds with water views. 2 bedrooms with queen and king sized beds, 2 bedrooms with twin beds, 2 sleeping porches, 1 with 3 twin beds, 1 with sleep sofa. When not used for sleeping enjoy the comfortable sitting room with TV and water views. 2 full baths upstairs, half bath downstairs.
Large living/dining room with cozy fire place for chilly evenings. Full kitchen and laundry room with all NEW appliances. Separate room with new FLAT SCREEN TV for quiet enjoyment.
