Waterford, Connecticut, 06385 $585,000
Pull down the enchanting tree-lined driveway off the distinguished Shawandassee Road to your 1+ acres of spacious, waterfront gold. Here is one of those rare properties that are only available once in a blue moon. “Gray Gulls” is 1900 post & beam construction with stucco exterior, resembling a Bahamian estate. It is the long-cherished “Pink House” on the Niantic River, boasting possibly the largest private sandy beach the shoreline has to offer. No steep staircases down a hillside to enjoy this beach, only a few short steps from having your toes in the sand, and taking a dip in the ocean. Go fishing for dinner from your jetty alongside the sea birds diving for theirs. See schools of fish jumping at dawn from the view-filled bedrooms. A myriad of windows and sliding glass doors blend the indoors with the outdoors. The patio has been a very popular living space, where coffee is sipped in the mornings and lobster dinners are had in the evenings. The Niantic River fills with people boating, jet skiing and paddle boarding in the summertime. The bridge at the mouth of the river raises for a convenient thruway for boats of unlimited mast heights, it even has ~30+ feet of clearance when lowered. Because of this, the Niantic River is a safe and common place to dock boats, both due to it’s easy access to LI Sound as well as it’s natural enhanced shelter from storms. Look no further for a special place to call home. Agent is related to seller.
