About the property

Enjoy ocean access from this 4 bedroom, plus studio on Long Island Sound

Newly Built in 2013, this waterfront home boasts unparalleled views of Long Island Sound, Sumac, Clam and The Thimble Islands. Step down from your back door to the pleasures of the sea: kayak, SUP, (both included), clamming, swimming, and relaxing. As the last house at the end of a peninsula, you will have privacy, and amazing views from each and every room. In the morning, wake up to sunrise views over the Thimble Islands, and over dinner, watch amazing sunsets from the living room. The house has an open, bright floor plan, well appointed with new, custom furnishings.

Enjoy the private dock, outdoor dining, couches, and TV in the open format "boat house" for al fresco gatherings.

Walk or bike to The Stand, Lenny's Indian Neck Restaurant, the Owenego Beach club, and several other Indian Neck area restaurants and pubs. Drive 5 minutes to downtown Branford's many restaurants, shops, potter making, yoga, library, and many more town activities.

Wifi, cable, and Netflix included. The house comfortably sleeps 8 adults or 4-6 adults and 4 children with four bedrooms in the main house, and an additional studio in boat house with a full bathroom.

Master: Feel like you are on a ship upon waking! King bed, deck, beautiful bathroom with a double shower.

Guest 1: Queen, amazing views and deck

Guest 2: twin with trundle

Guest 3: double, absolutely spectacular sunrise and moonshine views

These 3 rooms share a bath with a double sink and tub shower.

Guest house: Queen pull out (brand new and comfortable), full bath

Property also has an outdoor sink and shower

and outdoor Hot Tub!

Fully appointed kitchen with dual fuel Wolf stove, SubZero refrigerator, custom cabinetry, and large pantry.

Living room views are stunning: at low tide, watch the egrets, blue heron, seagulls and osprey work the ocean; at high tide, you see nothing but ocean. It's amazing!! With the flip of a switch, add the element of fire to the water views, with the gas fireplace.

The breakfast nook has a custom Sunbrella sitting area, where over coffee, you can watch an unobstructed sunrise, over the islands, every morning.

The dining room has seating for 8 around the large farm house table. Enjoy the sunset from here, or from the small French style bistro table outside on the wrap around deck.

Relax on the Gloster couches, from the deck or from under the boat house. Enjoy an al fresco meal from the large outdoor table, or lounge on the lawn with a good book and the sound of the sea.

Truly a breathtaking property.

Perfect Venue For Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

This home exceeded our expectations BUT you can't talk about the location without talking about the home owner, Kristen. It is always scary to rent a property especially with so much riding on it (this occasion was a family reunion). Kristen was over the top supportive and accommodating. She walked us through every step and gave superlative recommendations for catering and local resources. She answered all my neurotic texts without complaint (thx Kristen!).

The home itself is breathtaking...or more accurately, the views out to the LI Sound are breathtaking. What's more, the look varied throughout the day with the tides. Simply beautiful. The living areas are spacious; the kitchen is awesome; the bedrooms lovely (master bedroom has the best mattress I've ever slept on; meant to check the brand?!). The 'boat house' offers an additional living space with full bathroom. The downstairs, open space in the boat house was perfect for entertaining. Very comfortable. We rented 3 five-foot circular tables with 24 chairs that fit in the space without feeling cramped. The photos of the lawn do not do the property justice. There is plenty of lawn/grassy areas for the kids to run around.

I cannot say enough great things about the extended weekend and Kristen's graciousness. Our family of 7 adults (plus toddlers) stayed on the property without limitation. On Saturday evening, we hosted the reunion of 40 relatives. They all sat in the boat house and watched several home movies (videos) on the big screen Sony (with excellent sound). The property itself could have comfortably handled another 15+ without feeling cramped. Plenty of space for folks to spread out both inside and outside. I've already inquired about renting it again for Family Reunion II - a Thanksgiving gathering.

The Branford area had several rental properties for the rest of our family. The town, venue and hostess were all superb. I could go on. If you have any questions or concerns, I am sure Kristen would direct you to me for further dialogue. The place is totally worth the money. PS: She rents it because she likes to do this, not because she needs to. You should totally take advantage of her hospitality.

Many thanks for an outstanding event at an outstanding property. The memories will be fond.

Immaculate Property in Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here for our daughter's graduation from Yale. Everything in this house is top-notch! We loved our morning sunrises and relaxing on the large deck. We also enjoyed paddle boarding and kayaking. All appliances are top of the line and house has everything you need to enjoy home cooked meals. Hosts were very accommodating and available to answer all questions. First class all the way.
