Madison cottage description

Create those summer memories in a vintage direct waterfront home. Built in 1928, and located in a quiet private association community, this home retains all of its original charm. Beautifully updated, the home features an open living/dining area with water views from most of the rooms. The first floor also includes: a fully equipped new kitchen, bedroom with double bed and private bath, a fully windowed sun porch with breathtaking views and a back porch and laundry room. Upstairs features 4 more bedrooms with 1 1/2 baths. Another sun porch graces the front of the upstairs living area.
The property boasts a large 25x100 ft patio with steps directly into Long Island Sound. Fish from your doorstep for blues and stripers! Paddle your kayak or moor your small boat in front of the house.
Madison is the epitome of an old New England town. There's always something happening on the ''Green' from antique shows and flea markets to concerts and the weekly farmers market.
For those wanting a little more activity, there are two outlet complexes within a 15 minute drive. Foxwood and Mohegan Sun casinos as well as the popular Mystic Seaport are about 45 minutes away. Also in the area is the Essex Steamboat Train, Gillette Castle, the Ivoryton Playhouse and the Branford Trolley Museum. We're located midway between Boston and NYC---both a train ride away.
