About Kathryn Doherty

Artist and product designer

Kathryn Doherty purchased this house in 1987

Why Kathryn Doherty chose Cos Cob

Beautiful street, convenient location, great neighbors. Terraced gardens are a real plus. New Kitchen + Master bath, fresh paint inside and out, sanded floors. Commuting distance proximity to New York and all it has to offer but able to come home and settle back into a quiet house with a garden.

What makes this house unique

Available also for longer-term. It is the perfect 'in transition' or 'try out the area' option. Great for corporate relocations or a place to live while renovating your own home. Proximity to New York makes it a good choice for photo and film shoots.

Guests have both a supportive host available to offer recommendations and also total privacy. I reserve a totally separate apartment in the finished lower level basement and am there if not traveling. The apartment does not overlap or share entrance / any space with the house. Guests can feel free to approach me as needed with any questions or suggestions. Otherwise, their experience is completely separate and independent.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we felt at home at Kathryn’s. The living room is warm and inviting, the bedrooms are all comfortable and we thoroughly enjoyed the beauty and privacy of the backyard. Kathryn was easy to reach if we had questions and when we saw her she always greeted us with a lovely warm smile. (Our pets enjoyed their stay too.) Kathryn’s home had all the comforts we were looking for while we waited for our own home to be renovated and we would definitely stay at this home again if the need were to arise.

Owner's Response: Thank you Brandie!! You and your family are always welcome to come back any time. You were really a pleasure to host. I am so glad you chose my home for your stay and that it worked out to extend also. It was a great match for both of us.

This home is like staying at a country inn. The location is perfect for anyone who needs to be near NY/Stamford/upper Westchester etc. It's well equipped and most importantly CLEAN! The owner is just wonderful! Warm, friendly and helpful. We had no issues what-so-ever. The only note I would add is for anyone with knee issues. There are many steps which may limit your enjoyment especially of the beautiful back yard.

Owner's Response: Thanks Ellan!! I am so glad you came to stay! You and George were fantastic guests. I wanted the option of adding a "bonus star" to the rating I gave you as a guest. Kathryn

Great house in a wonderful neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

We feel most fortunate to have had the opportunity to live in this house for the past five months. The house is charming, very comfortable, and the upgrades in the master bath and kitchen make for easy living. The first floor rear sun room with the t.v. is a wonderful addition to this house. Kathryn, the landlord, has been most accommodating to our needs and the parking situation, particularly with having our two college age children living with us, was never a problem. This quiet neighborhood is easy to walk and the house is situated a short walk to local stores, and a brief walk to the to a town nature preserve which offers multiple hiking trails. We have had a great experience living here and highly recommend this house.

This House Has Everything!

  • 5 of 5

You will be very comfortable in this lovely home. It has everything you could possibly need for a short or extended stay.

All the amenities are here from whirlpool tub in the master bath, to the herb garden in back. It has a fully equipped new kitchen and a beautiful terraced garden in back.

The location is great. It is located on a quiet, residential street with in walking distance to Starbucks, the Post Office, Library, CVS and a nature preserve.

The house has been recently renovated and is great condition. I would definitely recommend it to a friend.
