A private, one-acre oasis, just one block from Long Island Sound! Ideal for an active family and guests, in the heart of the sought after Middle Beach waterfront district. Close to beaches, golf, and both the Surf Club and East Wharf beach for boating- and just minutes to town with quaint shops, fun restaurants, arts cinema and more. This 3-story Nantucket shingle style gem offers five bedrooms all w/ensuite baths. A professional grade kitchen (a popular cookbook was born here!), expands into a beautiful sitting area with fireplace, and also connects to a light filled breakfast room. The luxury first floor master suite has it all and offers views of the secluded pool and patio area. A beamed cathedral ceiling adds drama and light to the open, airy living room with stone faced fireplace and wide plank wood floors. An exercise room and sauna complete the first floor. For longer term guests or live-in, a full suite (sitting room, bedroom, bath, kitchen and roof patio overlooking the pool) is privately located over the two car garage, yet has easy access to the house. Extras include a sports court, custom pool house with Viking outdoor kitchen, 1/2 bath, dishwasher, fridge and exterior shower. Every fun amenity has been thought of and included! NO flood insurance required.
