Every once in a while a home becomes available on the Connecticut waterfront that is truly special, in fact magical. This property presents a unique opportunity to create a compound as it includes the adjacent waterfront building lot (73 Cove Avenue.). This enchanting Victorian beauty has been updated and upgraded while honoring its history. Wraparound porches welcome the moment you arrive.. Inside, soaring 9-foot ceilings and abundant architectural details delight at every turn and dramatic water views dazzle throughout. The kitchen flows to the family room which is designed for entertaining and welcomes a crowd around its statement stone fireplace, stunning water views and French doors to the new mahogany deck. The Chef's kitchen features a dual-fuel Viking range, Sub-Zero and Miele appliances. The living room with a gas fireplace and the study also face the waterfront. The Main Bedroom Suite is a stunner with its vaulted ceiling, fireplace, beautiful master bath with shower and soaking tub and so much closet space. And the views! Two additional water view bedrooms, a stunning bath and laundry complete the second floor. The 3rd floor is a treat with a large office and a bedroom suite whose water view balcony features views for miles. This special home also includes a guest suite over the 2 car garage with private entrance. Dry in storms, low flood insurance. Great walkable community with so many restaurants and the NYC train an easy stroll away.
