Overview

About the property

Architect Designed, 3 Bedroom, 2.5 Baths. In Town. Mystic River Views.

NOW AVAILABLE FOR SUMMER 2017!

Consider this…

A short 7-minute walk to Farm to Table - coastal dining; a leisurely bike ride down River Road; or a glass of wine on your stone patio watching the sailboats of the Mystic Seaport. This one of a kind home will leave you refreshed, rested, & inspired.

A well designed home with breathtaking water views of the Mystic Seaport and lighthouse. The sun sets behind you to the West and magically glows on the historic village each evening. This portion of the Mystic River is full of sailboats, kayakers and classic Seaport vessels (Sabino, Conrad, Morgan) up and down the river. Neighborhood water access for kayaks and canoes via Park Place boat ramp. Gracious out door patio, Weber gas grill. Outdoor dining with umbrella and Adirondack chairs to enjoy your sunset beverage. Fenced in back yard with large lawn for kids.

This ‘water end’ of Pearl Street has more cyclists, runners, and walkers, than cars. Less than a 3 block walk to downtown Mystic restaurants (Oyster Club, Engine Room, Red 36, Bravo Bravo, Anthony J’s, Drawbridge Ice Cream).

Modernized historic home with all newly renovated bath’s & top of the line Chef’s kitchen (Wolf Range, Sub Zero, Bosch dishwasher), ideal for entertaining. 2.5 baths, 3 bedrooms; all newly renovated. Sleeps 8.

About Steven Young

Architect with a slight obsession for historic homes.

Steven Young purchased this house in 2010

Why Steven Young chose Connecticut

We bought this home as our dream home in downtown Mystic. The water views are so relaxing with the sailboats of the Seaport all day long. Hear the drawbridge horn yet you are far enough away from the Main Street traffic. You can walk to nearly EVERYTHING from this location. We love to sit on the front steps with our coffees and watch the runners & cyclists go by.

What makes this house unique

Natural light galore. Very high ceilings. Water views from most rooms.

Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

This house is in a great location. Quiet but an easy walk to town along the river and walking distance to the seaport if you like to walk.

The house itself is a great mix of keeping original details and a modern renovation. Great kitchen overlooking the river if you love to cook with a view.

Great fenced in yard for the dogs, they had a blast. And a view of the river from the yard. Very relaxing.

We'll be back for sure.

Perfect House, Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here the weekend of our son's wedding in Mystic. It was great for our family to be together for the big day. The windows are big and the house is very light. The bedrooms are spacious with comfortable beds. Bathrooms have been updated beautifully. The location by the port can't be beat, and it was wonderful to wake up to the view each day. It's a really charming house, nicely updated, contemporary furnishings, and the yard is fabulous. The walk to town is about 5 minutes, and it's close to everything. Should we need a house to rent in Mystic again, I will definitely go for this one. I highly recommend this property.

Great Time in Mystic!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 loved our stay in your house. A short walk to Main Street (take the Gravel St short cut....beautiful walk) and all the restaurants/attractions. Steven, the owner, provided excellent guidance was great to work with. The house had all the amenities that you needed and there was plenty of sleeping space. The next door neighbors were great and their black lab was a hit with my girls. We look forward to our return to Mystic and staying in this house again.

Magical Girls' Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Six old friends descended on this beautiful getaway for three nights of catching up, game playing and relaxation. Sitting out back watching the water was super restorative. Even though it doesn't face exactly due West, this is a GREAT place for a sunset. Open a bottle of wine and enjoy. (It can get a little buggy in the evening so bring bug spray, so that doesn't get in the way of you enjoying the view.) The open kitchen floor plan was great for catching up. We got some "heat and eat" trays of food from Mystic Market. It was no fuss and delicious. The cozy living area was great for games and cards and lounging. Walking to town was easy and beautiful, we hardly drove anywhere. We had dinner at Bora Bora one night and the Treehouse at the Oyster Co. Both were delicious. If you want to take an afternoon or sunset sail, we can recommend Dawn and Darren from Poet's Lounge Charter's.

The three bedrooms were comfortable and nicely appointed and the 2.5 baths were great for 6 girls. :)

Working with the owners was easy and the next door neighbors are super friendly and delightful. We miss it already!
