Property description

Captain Hiram Clift of the Hudson whaling vessel built this home in 1891. Clift's historically restored and perfectly appointed Victorian home is full of antiques and charm. Dine with loved ones in the formal dining room. Partake in warm and wonderful conversations while your family chefs cook in the casual eat-in kitchen. Converse with family and friends without distraction of television. For families who love the great outdoors, walk 3/10 of a mile in different directions to magical destinations; downtown shopping, the famous Mystic River Bascule Bridge, Mystic Pizza where the 1988 movie of the same name was filmed, Mystic Seaport, the museum of America and the Sea, or three small parks, one of which features a play scape. Step into Hiram Clift's 1891 home and step back in time.

Year Purchased: 1977

About: Owner currently lives in East Lyme, CT and grew up in Waterford, CT. For 26 years he has worked as a home inspector.

Why Mystic:
I grew up sailing, joined the Coast Guard, and spent most of my life on the water. Mystic is a wonderful sailing community that brings me back to one of my favorite past times.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
What I loved about this home was its historical design and proximity to Mystic Seaport, where the sailing history of America is all encompassing.
