The journey to your perfect home begins at the base of this driveway, where attractive granite posts and mature trees lead to this charming three bedroom, two-and-a-half bath cape. Built in 1986, this 1,834 square foot home has been tastefully maintained and nicely updated, both inside and out. Outside, a lighted Koi pond, natural stone walls and beautiful foundation gardens set the tone for the special features that continue inside. Privately situated on 2.2 acres, this special home is located minutes from the Killingworth Town Center and just a short drive to the Clinton Crossing Premium Outlets, I-95 and Route 9.
The main level offers plenty of space for relaxing and entertaining, with hardwood floors that flow throughout the expansive front-to-back living room, large eat-in kitchen, formal dining room and comfortable family room. The living room features a raised-hearth, wood-burning fireplace flanked by attractive sconces and loads of windows to let in the light. The adjacent eat-in kitchen is bright and airy, with lots of cabinets for storage and a neutral color palate that sets off newer stainless steel appliances. The formal dining room offers additional space for larger meals with family and friends, while just off the kitchen, past a convenient half bath, lies the family room, featuring exposed-beam vaulted ceilings with skylights and a wood-burning stove that keeps things cozy in even the coldest temperatures.
All three bedrooms are located on the second floor, are generous in size and feature the interesting ceiling lines that capes are known for, with one boasting a large skylight to add to the light and airy feel. The master features an updated full bath that is also accessible from the hall, which along with a second updated full bath, makes the morning routine less stressful. Baseboard heating gently warms the home in winter without drying things out and central air on the second level keeps the bedrooms cool in warmer weather. A large unfinished basement with walk-out offers future expansion possibilities, while the oversized, attached two-car garage and large outdoor storage shed provide plenty of space for cars and outdoor tools and toys.
This pleasant home is convenient to both New Haven and Hartford, just two hours from New York and Boston and also enjoys Clinton beach rights, offering access to Connecticut’s beautiful shoreline and the best in New England living!
