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.
