Welcome to your pastoral paradise, only minutes from the ocean. Nestled into a private and serene 5-acre parcel, this Cape house has been lovingly renovated into a modern, farm-chic home for comfortable living. Whether you're spreading out in the chef's kitchen, swimming in your own pond, relaxing by the warm wood stove, or pursuing your next passion project in the workshop/bonus room, this property has something for everyone in the family. With lush woods and moving streams, both the kids and pets will love having ample room to play and explore. This is also the perfect property for someone with a green thumb or bent towards farming, since there are established perennial gardens, and a 50' x 50' vegetable garden with raised beds and trellises for growing, plus strawberry/raspberry/asparagus beds and a fruit tree orchard. There's plenty of room to expand the vegetable farm and grow even more.
The house has been renovated and updated throughout, including four bedrooms, two full baths, and full-size basement. Additionally, there's a spacious dining room, large living room with wood stove, bright sun porch with views of the swimming pond, large deck for grilling, and an airy reading-room porch. Other amenities include: an attic, full basement, detached garage, storage shed, laundry machines, and a large 40' x 16' "bonus room," which is for whatever you want to define it as (e.g. yoga studio, woodshop, greenhouse, recreation room, etc.).
The house has oil-based radiant hot water for the primary heat source, brand new wood burning stove, and three electric, wall-mounted Mitsubishi Heat/Air Conditioning pumps for additional heating/cooling. The house also has a backup automatic-generator for outages. Just across the street is Chittenden Hill Preserve, which has many acres of pristine trails for hiking and biking. Enjoy the best of what Connecticut offers with a tranquil rural setting, while only being minutes from the shoreline, 20 minutes from New Haven, and 10 minutes to Old Saybrook. A perfect spot to take the Clinton Crossing train to New York City, or simply telecommute from the porch with a view. Also, close to Westbrook, Madison, Haddam, Old Lyme, Killingworth, Branford, Old Saybrook, and Guilford Connecticut as well.
