Guilford cottage description

Called 'The Big House', it was built in 1890 and provides breathtaking views of Long Island Sound, Indian Cove, and your private, sandy beach. This is one of the few remaining seasonal homes in New England, with original wooden floors, walls and high ceilings. The spacious first floor includes a large family room, dining room, eat-in kitchen, bathroom, shower and laundry. There are front and rear stairs to access the second floor, which has five bedrooms and a bathroom. The large front porch welcomes you and your guests, while the screened porch is wonderful for relaxed, outdoor dining. You'll enjoy ocean breezes and water views all around.


The neighborhood is Mulberry Point, a quiet, charming area, surrounded by water views. The small private sandy beach area has a floating swim dock and tide pools to explore. Great for youngsters and adults!

The town is less than two miles away. It is well known for it's large historical green, surrounded by boutique shops, excellent restaurants, an Irish pub, toy shop, grocery stores, ice cream and chocolate shop, craft and jewelry stores, hardware store, churches, town library, town hall, day spa, bookstore, post office, as well as a breakfast and lunch cafe'. There are summer concerts on the green, a craft fair and other gatherings. The area is great for walking and cycling. Beyond the green, the town offers many amenities including a farm market, winery and orchard which is part of the Connecticut Wine Trail.

        This Long Island Sound shoreline town is a combination residential and summer community. Five miles in width and 12 miles in length, the town contains 47.6 square miles and a population of 21,000. Flanked on the west by Branford and on the east by Madison, these shoreline towns are suburbs to urban New Haven. Guilford has a small, historic, charming atmosphere which is highlighted by its rustic character and individuality. The town seeks to maintain its value and character as it continues the development of its commercial and industrial area in the southern section. This area is well served by major highways, including Interstate 95 and rail connections. Unique characteristics include the Town Green with tree lined abutting streets that boast the third largest collection of historical homes in New England, dwellings from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. Enjoy the numerous boutique shops, antique markets and art galleries that also surround the Green. ...moreless
