Waterford house description

This is a well-appointed, two-story guest house on an upscale, shorefront property overlooking the Niantic River. It has a direct waterfront and dock. The water is a navigable two miles to Long Island Sound.

The living-dining areas are located on the open-plan second floor, affording a wide-angle view of the river and across the river to the Oswegatchie Hills Nature preserve, which, according to The Day of New London is 'one of the most beautiful stretches of nature one can find anywhere.' (The Day, Nov. 23, 2005, Page A6)

You will have access to several large decks that descend to the waterfront, including an oversize, private deck right off the second floor, for your exclusive use. The first floor consists of a master bedroom suite, full bath, and a laundry room.

This is a home, not a summer cottage. All appliances, climate control systems (including central air conditioning and heating), bathroom and kitchen fixtures are of first quality. There are two TVs (one with HD), DirecTV premium movie channels, telephone with unlimited domestic long distance, and wireless, high-speed internet access.

The location, a two-minute ride from Rte. 95, is convenient to state park beaches, outlet shopping, fine dining, the casinos, and Mystic. There is also a state park in Waterford.
