A California native, with a love of coastal scenery, I have lived in the charming New England town of Guilford, CT for more than 15 years. It's a very special place!
Judy purchased this house in 2000
Why Judy chose Guilford
This property is amazing! The water views could not be more stunning. It's truly a place to relax and enjoy nature ... waves lapping, gorgeous sunsets, balmy sea breezes, wonderful beaches, boating, walking and hiking opportunities, locally grown food. You can 'get away from it all' here but you still have all the perks and conveniences you're used to. Convenient to shopping. You can even walk into town.
What makes this house unique
Sandy beach and amazing views of sparkling Long Island Sound from every room. High end appliances and antiques. Close to New York City, Boston, Mohegan Sun, outlet shopping.
