Opportunities like this dont come very often. For over 100 years families have enjoyed this classic colonial cottage perched high on the bluff overlooking Niantic bay. The house is on a one-way street just steps to the walking path connecting Crescent Beach and the Niantic Bay Yacht Club. It can now be yours to enjoy. Dream of childhood summers, ride the waves, walk the bluff, kayak the bay, sail out to the Sound, walk or bike into downtown Niantic for dining, shopping, a movie, or the garden market. Niantic is vibrant with a variety of activities year-round including a lobster festival, fireworks, concerts at McCook Park, fishing charters, and several parades. Come back home to this much-loved home that has been well maintained, while keeping its vintage charm. Enjoy water views and breezes from almost every room. The first floor is spacious and inviting with a wood-burning fireplace and double doors that open to the front porch. The vintage kitchen is a colorful and happy place. There is a bedroom and a half-bath on the first floor. The second floor offers 4 spacious bedrooms and a full bath. A walk-up attic offers expansion space, if desired. The property has a private fenced yard, with gates for access, and a wall of colorful wisteria vines in the Spring. There is outside access to a storage area that has a shower. Recent updates include new windows (2014 and 2009), electrical upgrade (2018), chimney flashing and pointing (2018). The owners prefer to sell furnished.
