About the Property

Charming Yet Modern Updated 3 Bedroom Cottage On The Water In Best Part Of OG

'The Cottage' is directly on the Long Island Sound, Stamford Harbor and has spectacular views with beautiful sunrises and view of the Stamford Lighthouse. It is a 1950's updated and remodeled open floor plan home. The backyard lawn meets a rocky shore with a path down to the water and small beach. Within 1400sq ft are 3 bedrooms, one bathroom with double sink and open LR, DR and kitchen. Home has been upgraded to accommodate discerning guests with amenities including high quality sheets, towels, varied down pillow options, free wifi, Sonos, Nespresso machine and more. "Sustainable and Green" design was chosen when possible. In season guests can paddle board, kayak and swim. Location is a nice walk or bike into town where the shops and restaurants are the perfect accent to our coastal community. Todd's Point is a sandy beach and nature preserve that is a short drive, run or bike ride away. Other attractions include Downtown Stamford, Greenwich Avenue, Bruce Museum and train or drive into NYC within 1 hour.'The Cottage' is nestled between 2 beautiful stately homes but still maintains privacy and is loved by all who have stayed there. Use of dock and mooring is available at special request. Pets are discouraged but will be considered.

Owner info

About the owner: World Traveler who loves to come home to this beautiful piece of paradise. We live in a neighboring home with the same incredible sunrises and salty fresh air.

Why the Owner Chose Old Greenwich, Greenwich, CT, USA:
This property is on one of the prettiest streets in Old Greenwich. People often walk their dogs, jog or stroll on our lane. Some of the homes have been here for over 100 years, while others are newer. Tomac Cove which is a stones throw from 'The Cottage' has claim as one of the landing spots for the Pilgrims. Wildlife abounds with Egrets, Blue Herons, Geese, Ducks, Ospreys, Hawks and more. Anya Seton, a prolific author, best known for her books turned Hollywood movies, DRAGONWYCK and FOXFIRE, lived in a home on this property. Her book THE WINTHROP WOMEN is a historical fiction novel that takes place right here in Old Greenwich and Tomac Cove- a great read.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
On the water! Views! Water bird viewing! Sunrises! Light House. Stamford Harbor. Beautiful skies. Casual fishing. Serenity.
