Property description

Best Location! Located off one of the area's most beautiful beaches. Have you ever seen purple sand? Come and take a look. Just steps from the front door, you'll find yourself standing on the beach looking out at the tip of Long Island. The house has five bedroom, two full baths, outside shower (hot and cold water), fireplace, electric heat, new appliances, and an open view of Long Island Sound. Four of the five bedrooms have a view of the water. Relax on the open front porch while you enjoy ocean breezes and the sound of waves. Access to the private beach is limited to owners AND guests. Home is minutes from the Town Green for local shopping, entertainment and Hammonasset State Park.
