Located in New Haven's finest neighborhood, our home is a short walk to Yale. Built in 1912, it is a historic beauty that we have carefully updated and maintained. The ground floor features a spacious living room, dining room, sun room, library, and half bath. The bright and spacious eat-in kitchen, which we added, is a gourmet cook's dream. The second floor has 3 bedrooms, an updated, sun-filled porch, and the main bath with new shower and large soaking tub. The 3rd floor has a very private bedroom and a historic bathroom with a claw-foot tub. (The bathroom is off a short hall, so it is available to everyone in your party, if needed.) The grassy backyard is the largest on the block and features a brick patio with picnic table, chiminea, and modern gas barbecue. The comfortable basement houses the washer and dryer and includes 3 exercise machines facing a flat screen TV.
Across the street, the 430 acre East Rock Park offers open fields, a picnic area, paved bike paths, a small river suitable for canoeing and kayaking, and miles of hiking trails to summits with spectacular views of the city and Long Island Sound. Neighborhood amenities within walking distance include three small markets, a pharmacy, coffee shop, wine store, pub, pizza shop, and a restaurant featuring northern Italian cuisine.
