Meticulously maintained historic Short Beach shingle-style cottage. Indirect waterfront with water views from every room, deeded Sound access to launch your kayak or swim at the nearby beach.This charming home was built in the 1880s, and updated in 2004 with Marvin new-construction divided-light windows to replicate the historic 24-over-1 originals, along with custom exterior shingles and cedar-trim, mechanicals, roof, electric, and plumbing. Cozy living room with restored wood burning fireplace, original beadboard and classic shoreline staircase. The dining room has 2 walls of windows, and shares an open space with the kitchen-perfect for cooking, entertaining while enjoying the view. A picture-perfect 3-season room surrounded by windows offers space for guests to spread out. A half bath and laundry room complete the first floor. The second floor has 2 bedrooms with vaulted ceilings, restored stained-glass windows, an updated full bath, ample closet space, and 2 decks offering peaceful spots to enjoy the sun and views of Long Island Sound. Watch osprey, Yale sailing regattas, and Stony Creek Quarry tugs pass by as you gaze out over the water toward the horizon. This gem withstood the 1938 New England Hurricane and stayed dry during Irene and Sandy with zero damage. Ground-level decks feature an outdoor shower and space to grill. A detached garage offers space for a car or workshop. Walking distance to restaurants, and a quick drive to Branford center and downtown New Haven.
