Property description

Captain Hiram Clift of the Hudson whaling vessel built this home in 1891. Clift's historically restored and perfectly appointed Victorian home is full of antiques and charm. Dine with loved ones in the formal dining room. Partake in warm and wonderful conversations while your family chefs cook in the casual eat-in kitchen. Converse with family and friends without distraction of television. For families who love the great outdoors, walk 3/10 of a mile in different directions to magical destinations; downtown shopping, the famous Mystic River Bascule Bridge, Mystic Pizza where the 1988 movie of the same name was filmed, Mystic Seaport, the museum of America and the Sea, or three small parks, one of which features a play scape. Step into Hiram Clift's 1891 home and step back in time.
