About the Property
2 Bedrooms and 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6
The house was gutted 5 years ago, raised and new electrical, plumbing, roof, windows, doors, ceilings, walls, floors, bath and kitchen completely new. Central air & heat available and overhead ceiling fans in all rooms for fresh cross breeze from the sound or marsh. 2 bedrooms offer private sleeping quarters, while sofas offer extra spots with one queen pullout sofabed. White sofa and loveseat in the livingroom have two end tables and a coffee table, large 60' TV with DVD & cable will entertain at night. Separate front room allows for two groups of people to do their own thing in one house and features a 4 seater rattan, custom-covered sofa and matching 2 chairs and ottoman, side table, coffee table, and bookcase with small TV. The kitchen has a microwave, toaster, coffee maker, baking sheets & pans, serving dishes, wine glasses...it also has a drop-leaf table (which expands) with five matching chairs and 2 spares to add. Dine inside or out on the deck - you can see the sunsets and watch osprey and other birds in the salt marsh - another beautiful view. The beach across the street is only shared with one house (whose older inhabitants rarely leave their deck) so the beach is not crowded and access to the water is direct. Bring your walking shoes, bicycles or kyacks and enjoy! Route 1 is not far with Stop & Shop, Shop Rite, TJ Max, Clinton & Westbrook Outlet shopping, cinemas, many family and fine restaurants abound. Wonderful place to vacation with quick access to nearby Madison's State Park on the water, small towns with their historic sites and antique shops to wander through. I can give you many ideas to fill your days or nights when you want a break from enjoying the beach.

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: I grew up summering across the street, where my parents still live. They have been there 40 years as have most of our neighbors. We enjoy the beach, it our favorite place during the season, and when the season ends the weather is still warm, the water is warm too. This is my family's favorite place.
Why the Owner Chose Clinton, Connecticut, United States of America:
The house across the street - on the beach - has been the place my family celebrated holidays and continues to be our place to gather. When our elderly neighbors passed away and their daughter - my peer - wanted to sell the house we jumped on the opportunity to buy it. We rent the house to offer everyone the chance to be on the beach for their vacation.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
What's great about this house is that I gutted it and everything is new, that there is central air and ceiling fans, that there is a livingroom and a separate front room so that two groups can enjoy separate activities if they want to (watch tv in one room and enjoy reading or hearing conversations in the other). It's a wonderful house, it comes with everything, even dishwasher soap because i want you to have a wonderful vacation and come back again! I live just down the road so if you need anything I can come over quickly.
