Property Description

Emerge from your stunningly architecturally designed, New England-style colonial on to a highly desirable stretch of Connecticut’s picturesque shore, or simply enjoy a pristine view of the Long Island Sound from the first-floor’s open-plan main living space of this magnificent waterfront home in Branford’s Pine Orchard neighborhood. At over 8,000 square feet of light-filled, superbly finished rooms whose interiors welcome any kind of decorative style, this 5-bedroom, 5-1/2 bath beauty includes 3 indoor fireplaces and an outdoor one. The second floor brims with sleeping quarters perfect for family or guests: a master bedroom with en suite bath features a deck overlooking the water; an additional, nearly-master-sized bedroom spotlights a gloriously huge bath; three smaller, sizeable bedrooms complete the story. The third floor’s “bonus” room’s open-plan design now serves as a recreation/meditation space, with pool table and Peloton, open to myriad possibilities for multi-use. A finished lower level boasts a luxe, comfy home theater and room that currently houses a gym but easily transforms into ideal home-office, playroom, or other space. With a hydro-air heating system, this rare gem is not just energy efficient—its roof is prepped to be topped off by a finished Widow’s Walk, yet another water-viewing, getaway opportunity in this grand shoreline house, suitable for full family use year-round, seasonal and weekend gathering and entertaining, or all the above!
