Groton Long Point house description

This private and expansive oceanfront home in Groton, CT offers the perfect family vacation, church retreat, birthday celebration, or large family gathering, with panoramic views of Fisher’s Island and Long Island Sound. With a large expanse of lawn, the home is surrounded by ocean on three sides and protected by a stone seawall. Positioned on 2 private acres of land, the house, built in the 1960s, was designed in the style of architect Frank Lloyd Wright, with its cathedral ceiling in the main room, large, custom, floor-to-ceiling fireplace and large windows throughout the house to capture ocean breezes and views. The interior is simple and cozy and has a nostalgic cottage feel. It is a very unique property for Groton Long Point, as the home is on a peninsula, while most homes in Groton Long Point are very close to one another with little privacy. The large lawn is ideal for little ones to run around, hold a family gathering and barbecue, or play volleyball, horseshoes, croquet, or other games.

The location is very serene and quiet, near Esker Point beach. In addition to the town beach which is only a few feet away from the house, the home also offers two private beaches on the property—and we mean private, as no one else has access to them but you and your family. One beach is long, and could accommodate a larger number of people, while the other beach is smaller, but still very scenic and also ideal for families. Grab a lawn chair, light a camp fire, make s'mores with your loved ones on the beach at night, camp under the stars on the beach or lawn, or just sit on the porch and watch the boats sail by in the day and the stars come out at night. Enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner outside on one of the two patios, or enjoy a special picnic on the lawn while watching the swans, egrets, geese, ducks, and herons swim by. There is also a pier for fishing, catching crabs, or launching a boat. The property also has a southern exposure—the sun rises on the left and sets on the right, so you can watch beautiful sunrises and sunsets from the porch. The best part is that although the location is quiet and private, you are minutes away from downtown Mystic, supermarkets, Foxwoods, Mohegan Sun, amusement parks including Lake Compounce, cinemas, zoos, horseback riding, boat rentals for various water sports, and much more.

The home is also ideal in the off-season for those looking to get away, whether it be a short- or long-term retreat, sabbatical, to finish a novel, or to just get away for peace and quiet.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1903

About the owner: Our family has owned this land for more than 100 years. Replacing the original family cottage, the current house was built in the mid-1960s. Five generations of our family have enjoyed playing on the lawn, stargazing and sleeping under the stars, digging for clams at low tide and making our famous family clam chowder, jumping off the pier to cool off on hot summer days, roasting marshmallows over a campfire on the beach, and much more.

Why the Owner Chose Groton Long Point:
A very unique property in Groton Long Point with 2 acres of land, on a peninsula. No houses on top of one another in a row, and very private.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Ideally located near Massachusetts, New York and Rhode Island for family reunions, birthdays, Mother's Day, Coast Guard Academy graduations, and large Thanksgiving and Christmas gatherings. Convenient to Mystic, Foxwoods, Mohegan Sun and many other tourist attractions, while also offering a tranquil, scenic respite to come home to at the end of a busy day.
