Property description

Sunny and Charming 6 bedroom 1910 colonial is 4 houses away from Private Beach with newer kitchen, 2.5 baths , hardwood floors, stone fireplace, 1st floor washer and dryer, oil heat, new windows on 1st two floors, and private beach right on Long Island Sound. The house is four doors from the beach with a partial view of the water down the street. Coast Guard Parents: We are about 15 minutes from the Coast Guard Academy.
Submarine School Families: We are also about 15 minutes from Sub Base New London. The first floor has two living room areas, dining room, newer kitchen, and 1/2 bath. Second floor has a recently remodeled bathroom and 4 bedrooms (2 queens, 1 full, 1 with 2 twins). Third floor has two bedrooms and a full bath. One bedroom is walk-through and is configured as a family room. It has a queen futon that will sleep two plus a twin. The other has two twins.

We are 3 mins walk to Ocean Beach, 10 mins drive to Harkness Park, & 30 mins drive to the Branford House. All offer seaside weddings.


Lounge Away your Stress on our White Sand Beach.: The home includes beach rights on private Neptune Park Beach which is a lovely white sand beach on Long Island Sound. From that beach you can look out on the open water and see sailboats, ferries, commercial shipping, fishing boats, an occasional submarine or tall ship, 2 lighthouses, and Long Island in the distance. You can also launch a canoe or kayak there. The beach has three distinct sections separated by rocks. One has a diving and sunning platform, another is a small cove, and the third is an open expanse of white sand. Sitting on that part of the beach, you can almost feel like you are in the Caribbean!

September is the best time at the beach, crowds are gone and the water is still warm. In the fall, winter and spring, take beach walks on the board walk, or enjoy a casino weekend, or Thanksgiving and Christmas away from the city noise.

We accept credit cards through Paypal.


The Kids Won’t Be Bored Here, and Neither Will You: They can play volley ball, miniature golf or video games at Ocean Beach Park which is just 1 block away. The park also includes a public beach, restaurant, health club, a bar with waterfront deck, ice cream stand, gift shop, nature area, boardwalk, concerts and an outdoor swimming pool. Or visit an 1839 fort at Fort Trumbull State Park which is just 5 minutes away. Name entertainers perform on the waterfront at nearby Harkness Memorial Park’s season long open air Summer Music festival. Next door to Harkness, you can experience live theater at the Eugene O’Neill Theater. Both are about 10 minutes away.



Tour a Nuclear Submarine, or a Real Whaling Ship : In 30 minutes or less you can be at the Mohegan Sun Casino, Foxwoods Casino, Mystic Seaport (tour old whaling town and authentic ships), Mystic Aquarium, the U. S. Navy’s Submarine Force Museum (tour a real nuclear submarine and simulators), the U. S. Coast Guard Academy, as well as the many fine restaurants. Or see a baseball game with the Norwich Navigators, the Double-A affiliate of the San Francisco Giants. There are also vineyards located north of Norwich. And you can take a fishing or sail boat cruise.

Tour Mansions of the Golden Era or go Yachting

Tour the grand old mansions of the Gilded Era (circa the Vanderbilts and the Astors) in Newport, RI, which is an hour away. Or experience the yachting lifestyle at America’s Cup Charters. Their Twelves all raced for yachting's most coveted prize, and three actually won the America's Cup. Participation is welcomed but not required! Get involved in the sailing or just sit back and enjoy the sunset on picturesque Narragansett Bay.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: I am a computer software consultant. This house was my primary residence when I moved to the New London area from Chicago. I love the area and would not have moved out, except that I bought a larger house to turn into a bed and breakfast inn.

Why the Owner Chose New London:
Originally I came to the area for work and to live by the water. As time passed, I became more and more aware of all of the interesting things to do in the area. As the casinos grew, they brought in more and more first class entertainers and live sporting events. Being from Chicago I am accustomed to having many entertainment choices. In an area like New London County, you wouldn't think you would find the same level of entertainment, but because of the casinos you do. I count myself lucky to have found this place. So much so, that I plan to retire here one day.
