Property description

Renovated in 2013, this direct waterfront house in the residential Saugatuck Shores section of Westport, Connecticut, offers panoramic views of Long Island Sound, a master bedroom suite overlooking the water, a private patio surrounded by beautiful flowers, a new country front porch and a new 2nd floor deck facing the water. It's fully furnished, tastefully decorated, has 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, new oak floors, new stainless kitchen appliances, new washer, dryer, new upgraded electrical system, cable TVs, DVD and high-speed wireless Internet access. It's 65 minutes to New York City by car or train and a few minutes to I-95, the train station, fine restaurants, shopping and many recreational, cultural and entertainment amenities, including art exhibits, seasonal concerts and the famous Westport Playhouse.

You can swim, sail or fish right in front of the house. There are a few very small private beaches within walking distance. Two, large public beaches, with full facilities, are 10 and 15 minutes away. The house is located in Saugatuck Shores, which is almost entirely surrounded by water and is ideal for sailing, walking and biking. You can rent a boat or kayak at Longshore Marina and beach it in front of the house. Or, relax on the front porch or upper deck and watch a procession of colorful boats pass by the house. Kids love to walk along the beach and collect shells, stones and sea creatures.

Shopping choices, which are too numerous to list, are minutes away: Whole Foods, Costco, Trader Joe's, CVS, etc.
