About: My grandparents bought this house when they lived in New York City. They spent the entire summers here with my mother and aunt. My grandfather would take the train up on the weekends. Now my aunt and uncle own it and rent it during the season. They spend a week or so at the end and beginning of the summer, vacationing and making improvements on the house. I help them with the online listings like this.
Why Old Lyme, CT, USA:
My mother, aunt and myself and our families have been coming to this house since we were babies. It's a safe and special place that still shuts off the water for six months during the winter. The beach house is a warm and welcoming, well loved home full of lots of happy memories.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The mile long walk to Griswold point, a bird sanctuary protected by the Nature Conservancy. The small front lawn and the house are shaded by 2 large maple trees. There is a wraparound screened-in porch where one can watch the water and listen to the waves. We now have an outside shower. Tenants can take part in a recreation program for kids and there's a Community Center for events. White Sands Beach is a quiet and safe community, great for the summer and peaceful and beautiful in the spring and fall.
