There aren’t many opportunities to buy into the exclusive and private Shorelands Association, south of Old Greenwich, CT. But this charming 1920s four-bedroom home is your chance. It offers a slew of amenities that come with living in the neighborhood— including a private beach, floating dock with slide, boat dock, kayak storage and water access—plus all the benefits of numerous renovations over the last 10 years. There is now an open floor plan, all hardwood floors, moldings and stucco and plaster details.
“There are so many places to relax and enjoy the natural surroundings,” says Julianne Ward executive director of sales at Berkshire Hathaway Home Services New England Properties, such as the sunroom, which has a slider that opens to the deck with water views. “It is a wonderful space to enjoy the sun and ocean breezes,” she said, and adds that the space also makes a wonderful office. Plus, a second deck off the main bedroom has views of the water, and a flagstone terrace off the kitchen features a woodburning fireplace for outdoor dining and entertaining year round.
Four bedrooms, level land and proximity to the beach make this home ideal for a variety of buyers as a full time, seasonal or weekend home. “The house features a wonderful open floor plan with each room opening to the next,” says Ward. “It’s perfect for daily living or entertaining.”
A lower level complete with full bathroom, mud and laundry room, and playroom also allows for easy entry when coming home from the beach.
The beach is just one of the many convenient amenities close by. There are also the shops and restaurants of Old Greenwich, award-winning schools, the train in walking or biking distance and the beauty of Greenwich Point Park.
