About the Property

House, 6 Bedrooms + Library, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

If you appreciate a historic property, you will love this recently restored house. In fact, it is so unique that we are just the third family ownership since 1834.

This house is ideal for Family Reunions, Corporate Retreats, and Leadership Meetings.

Originally the home of Sylvester Pond, a well known sea captain, the house sits on one acre, and is nestled next to thirty acres of tidal marsh land. It is just three short blocks to the quaint town beach and park. The house sits across the street from the Branford River (ocean inlet) so most views from the house are either of boats and water, or stunning marshland views.

We are located on Historic Harbor Street, where a trolley used to run leading down to the fantastic Brandford Point, a manicured park, playground and well groomed beach with a lifeguard are part of park area.

We just recently completed an extensive restoration/renovation to return the house back to its original grandeur while making it very comfortable, livable and modern. There is central zoned heat and central zoned air conditioning. This house is ideal for family gatherings, small groups or reunions. The House has six bedrooms.


*On the ground floor is a long hallway leading to two private bedrooms and a full bath.
One bedroom has a king bed and the other bedroom has a queen.

*On the second floor are three bedrooms and three bathrooms. The master bedroom has a king bed and walk in closet. The Master bathroom is quite spacious with a double vanity and deep porcelain soaking tub and shower. Bedroom four has two twin beds and en suite bath. Bedroom five a trundle bed (two twins) and a baby crib, with its bath across the hall.

*The third floor (Bedroom 6) is a large and bright finished attic with a queen bed.

The Eastern Connecticut Shore is quite possibly the quaintest area in America. The houses are historic with American Flags flying in abundance. Branford is the place where Yale University was founded. Walk (or use some of our bikes) to town and try the famous ice cream shop, antique stores and boutiques. Branford has some of the best restaurants on the Connecticut shoreline. The town square has a European feel or something from a Norman Rockwell sketch. The house is 8 miles from New Haven, 50 miles from Mystic, 70 miles from NYC, and 95 miles from Newport, RI.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We are a couple live full time in NYC with four kids. We restored this home to be a place to get away from the city. We are both originally from Utah, we met while working in New York City 15 years ago. We both have a love affair with renovating historic properties. I graduated from Columbia University and worked at a large consulting firm. Now I run the rental units ( our other vrbo id is 138897) and enjoy staying home with my children. Bill works in business development for a software company.

Why the Owner Chose Branford Center, Branford, CT, USA:
We had rented vacation properties in the area for three years. Branford can't be beat for its charm, historic character, well kept beach, park and children's playground. We think it is the best of all the Connecticut Shoreline towns. We always loved this house and our heart skipped a beat when we saw the for sale sign. We made an offer 24 hour later. There is a reason why we are just the third family to have owned this estate in 200 years.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is like living in a comfortable historic museum. The fireplaces, hardware, beams, original floors...etc. The beach, boats and scenic walks. The grounds are spectacular. It will remind you of the Cotswolds in England. Our bedding and linens are 1st quality. We stay in high end hotels and promise that you will have equal comforts here.
