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.

This place was great and the views were amazing !!!

  • 5 of 5

We throughly enjoyed our stay at this beach front house !

The house was immaculate and decorated beautifully ! The patio was very

large and the views were amazing ! It was wonderful to walk down a few steps

and be on the water and views from the living room and master bedroom were great .

It was also great to have a large fire pit on the patio and we took full advantage of

the use of the kayaks, which was great fun !

This house had everything you need to have a great vacation including a fully

equipped gourmet kitchen. Restaurants and stores are located close by .

I would highly recommend this house for anyone looking for a relaxing home on

the water with awesome views !!!

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!
