About Barbara Lucas
As Branford natives, we both are very familiar with the local area and enjoy renovation and preservation projects, and are happy to share our tales of what we learned about our building's history and character. Both fans of Big East Basketball, Claudio is a Providence College Friar and Barbara is a Villanova Wildcat - so when it's March Madness, we are glued to the stats! After globetrotting in the yachting industry, Barbara's 15-year residence in Florida came to a halt when she relocated back to New England in 2008. As frequent vacation home renters ourselves, we know what travelers expect when they arrive at their destination: clean comfort.
Barbara Lucas purchased this apartment in 2014
Why Barbara Lucas chose Stony Creek
We renovated Claudio's childhood home in this great New England town and know that the shoreline real estate here is HOT! Together we merged our skill-sets on the Stony Creek Depot project to showcase our design aesthetic, expand our retail vintage business and secure a home in a highly coveted neighborhood. Our guests can book short-term stays in the spacious residential space to enjoy this wonderful little coastal village. Residents and tourists take in the beautiful Thimble Island views and nature hikes that are just footsteps from the Depot's front door. We love Branford and consider ourselves lucky to get a footing in the Stony Creek village, where properties often remain in the same family for generations. We are dedicated to helping this property flourish as a vibrant part of the community since it has a 100+ year history of adapting to commercial and residential enjoyment.
What makes this apartment unique
This property retains the original flavor of an older, coastal New England home, while bringing in some of the modern comforts that we enjoy and guests will expect in a vacation rental. Without having direct water views we are able to keep the price point a bit lower than higher dollar properties footsteps away, making it a budget-friendly alternative to a generic hotel room. Because we are also pet-friendly and only require a 2-day minimum booking (not a full week), Stony Creek Depot is a great weekend getaway retreat. We love using this residential space while we run our onsite, street-front business and we hope that making it available for short-term rental will enable visitors to appreciate the charms of the Stony Creek village.
