About Barbara

The house is owned by an Interior Designer and her husband who were living and working in Fairfield County, CT when they fortuitously discovered a small waterfront home. She and her husband, born and raised in Connecticut on Fairfield Beach, fell in love with the idea of living directly on the water and chose to move from their home with botanical gardens in woodsy Wilton, Ct to the light and openness of the Connecticut shoreline. With her passion for design and his love of the water they envisioned an opportunity to exercise her talents and realize a shared dream.

Barbara purchased this house in 2004

Why Barbara chose Milford

We believe that we have found a piece of paradise on the edge of busy metropolitan and suburban living because of its feeling of beauty, quiet, and privacy. There are twelve miles between the waterfront side of the home and the beckoning lights of the North Shore of Long Island -we say our front yard is a very long horizon on which dreams rise each day. The sounds of water and tidal breezes, the ever present changes in light and water allow us to feel a belonging to nature's flow and simultaneously live in proximity to all the advantages and adventures of upscale living.

What makes this house unique

The beauty and peace of living on the water in new England's changing seasons and the opportunity for abundant outdoor adventures such as sailing, swimming, hiking, kayaking and sitting with friends by the artist crafted fire pit on the stone patio on cool moonlit nights.

Wonderful, pretty, oceanfront home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This home is delightful! From the oceanfront (it's like being in the bow of a liner!), to the beautiful house design, furniture, and accoutrements, this 2 bedroom home has everything you'll need to spend a relaxing, worry-free time.The kitchen is complete and, though we brought cooking basics, we really didn't need them. The main rooms and the master suite open onto a lovely patio through huge French doors that flood the house with light and gorgeous views of the ocean. The patio overlooking the water has multiple chairs for relaxing and 4 umbrellas. We were spoiled for choice! Barabara was totally accommodating and flexible to suit our needs. We look forward to returning!

Exactly what we were hoping for!

  • 5 of 5

We have a young daughter who is not mobile yet (house is not baby proof) and we were hoping for a quiet week in a lovely house on the water and this is exactly what we got! We enjoyed the sound and the patio during the day and we barbecued and lit a fire in the fire pit every night. The weather was perfect the week we went so I can't speak to many other things to do in the area but there is a cute town close by and a large mall we drove past. The owner Barbara was very helpful and responsive to our questions and we really enjoyed our stay.

More than we expected in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Definitely our best vacation ever! The house and the location are all that the description and the other reviewers say. Relaxing on the beautiful stone terrace, we felt like we were on the Mediterranean. We enjoyed kayaking, the fire pit, shopping (just 5 minutes away), admiring the remarkable gardens and stonework, collecting shells, the book collection, and a day at Mystic Seaport (an hour away). We could not recommend it more highly!

FABULOUS!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely home on the Long Island Sound. We have returned for two summers in a row. It is an immaculately kept house that is very comfortable and the owners are great hosts. They are quick to respond to any question. This house is near train station, grocery stores and good restaurants. The kitchen is well stocked and great for cooking. The porch is filled with comfortable chairs, umbrellas and a fire pit for cool nights or s'mores. There is a kayak for paddling. It is a wonderful place to which we hope to return often!

Better than the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

This property is truly better than the pictures. The pictures can't capture the sound of the waves and how quiet this area really is. This property was perfect. Everything was super clean and the homeowner was an absolute dream to deal with. I rented this house with my wife and young (6yr) daughter. We all had a great time relaxing, playing in the waves, kayaking and collecting shells. If you're looking to vacation at the water in the North East this house should be your top contender.
