About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5) Sorry, we do not do house showings

*Please contact us only when you are fairly sure about your plans, sorry we do not do house showings - thanks

This newly updated Victorian located in the coastal Harbor Shores neighborhood of artsy, historic South Norwalk (SONO) is the perfect getaway for anyone looking for a quick, quiet and convenient Connecticut escape. It makes an excellent executive rental, romantic getaway or family vacation. The three level home has hard wood floors throughout, stainless appliances, and is decorated with a nautically inspired and traditional New England flair. The kitchen, living room, dining room and bathroom/laundry are on the first level. Two bedrooms and bathroom are on the second level, and the oversize master is the third floor.

The home is located at the end of a small, quiet dead end street that ends at the Long Island Sound and Norwalk Harbor's salt water tidal marsh. Just footsteps from the front door will take you to the marsh to enjoy any number of water activities. There are water views from many windows of the house. The backyard is completely fenced in with beautiful landscaping, Adirondack chairs, hammock, sand box beach (converted from a garden), tiki torches and in-ground pool; all of which provide a private paradise for guests needing a relaxing escape.

When looking to venture away from the property, there is a park across the street with tennis, basketball and playground. Quaint waterfront Baxter park is just another 2 blocks away. perfect for picnics! 8 more blocks will take you from this residential peninsula into downtown SONO where you can enjoy a variety of fine dining, the Maritime Aquarium, movie cinema, imax theater, shopping, Rowyaton Market, art galleries, antiquing, SONO's row club, Rex's Dive shop, or a New England lobster/clambake boat ride to the Norwalk Islands. Norwalk's Calf Pasture Beach is a quick 2 mile bike ride or a 15 minute canoe ride away with waterfront dining, a miniature golf course, large dog park, playground and full marina with kayak or sailboat rentals. There are too many other activities in Norwalk to list and what Norwalk can't provide, is guaranteed to be within close proximity of this central location. A quick ferry ride from Bridgeport CT to Port Jefferson Long Island will drop you off right in the heart of the very quaint Port Jefferson; the bustling waterfront town with all its shops and eateries. Block Island ferry is just a bit further up the line and can easily be done in a day trip. Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket are accessible by ferry as well and NYC is an easy train ride via either one of the two trains stations in town.

A full guide of the area, inclusive of all indoor/outdoor activities, is provided at the property so you are never left looking for something to do. Of course many of our visitors are often just as happy to do nothing in our cozy Connecticut home.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Professional couple

Why the Owner Chose Norwalk, CT, USA:
*Picture of finished attic with King bed is not shown but will be re-added to listing We chose this area because it is a creative, artistic community. There is no limit to the number of activities you can find to do within a quick walk, bike ride, boat ride or drive away. We love being on the coast in a historic New England neighborhood, where every season offers its own unique beauty.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
If you are seeking a place in New England near the water yet want to be in a city with many amenities you have made a good choice. We are also a short train ride or drive into NYC and a day trip to Block Island, Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket, Newport Rode Island and Port Jefferson Long Island. And you won't feel like you are in the boonies when you return to our place. This is an ideal home due to it being so centrally located.
