Property description

Waterfront beach house with more than 100 feet of beach on the Long Island Sound in the private gated community of Scott’s Beach – a vacation by the sea. The height of the home above the water provides gorgeous expansive views of the Sound and there are adjacent stairs leading to the beach below. For those preferring only a few stairs, there is access to the beach with available parking at the western end of Scott’s Beach, a short walk from the home. Privacy abounds as the home is at the end of a dead-end street abutting a ten-acre vacant parcel of wooded land.
Built in 1997, the approximately 3500 square foot home has four bedrooms on the upper floor along with a large master bathroom and a family bathroom. The master bedroom has a king bed, the second bedroom has a queen bed plus a queen-size hide a bed and the third bedroom has two twin beds. The fourth bedroom has a twin bed and also houses a home office for those requiring space to work while on vacation and a library for those interested in reading a good book. The home sleeps seven in beds and up to eleven if the hide a beds are used.
The main floor is comprised of a spacious ocean room/great room with a wall of windows facing out to the Sound, giving the sense of being on a ship. A deck accessed from the ocean room and kitchen spans the entire back and one side of the home for outdoor relaxation above the beach. The main floor also has a den with a queen-size hide a bed, dining room, powder room, kitchen and dinette.
For those interested in strictly indulging in the amenities of the home and Scott’s Beach, there is walking the private wooded streets, enjoying the beach at the home or at the beach at the west-end of Scott’s Beach, relaxation on the deck with a delicious drink and a good book or indoor enjoyment of television, board games, puzzles, the internet, conversation or a much-needed nap. Peace and quiet abound. In pleasant weather, listen through the bedroom windows to the ripples of the water lapping onto the shore.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I live in two states - Michigan and New York. I love spending time on the beach, frequently walking, watching the sunsets and listening to the water lap up on the shore. I have two children, both grown and living in New York City. I live with my little dog, Oreo, and we have fun playing together. I am an attorney and a writer and find the vistas of the Sound from the house inspiring!

Why the Owner Chose Sound Beach, NY, USA:
The view, it is all about the view! Top that off with approximately 3500 square feet of beautiful space and a gorgeous beach and the property simply cannot be beat!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The view, the privacy, the sound of the water lapping up on the shore heard through the windows and the sense of being on a ship when in the ocean room make this home unique and inviting.
