This newly updated Victorian located in the coastal Harbor Shores neighborhood of artsy, historic South Norwalk (SONO) is the perfect getaway for anyone looking for a quick, quiet and convenient Connecticut escape. It makes an excellent executive rental, romantic getaway or family vacation. The three level home has hard wood floors throughout, stainless appliances, and is decorated with a nautically inspired New England flair. The kitchen, living room, dining room and bathroom/laundry are on the first level. Two bedrooms and bathroom are on the second level, and the oversized master is the entire third floor.
The home is located at the end of a small, quiet dead end street that ends at the Long Island Sound and Norwalk Harbor's salt water tidal marsh. Just footsteps from the front door will take you to the marsh to enjoy any number of water activities. There are water views from many windows of the house. The backyard is completely fenced in with beautiful landscaping, fire pit, adirondack chairs, hammock and tiki torches surrounding the in-ground pool; all of which provide a private paradise for guests needing a relaxing escape.
When looking to venture away from the property, there is a park across the street with tennis, basketball and playground. Quaint waterfront Baxter park is just another 2 blocks away. perfect for picnics! 8 more blocks will take you from this residential peninsula into downtown SONO where you can enjoy a variety of fine dining, the Maritime Aquarium, movie cinema, imax theater, shopping, art galleries, antiquing, SONO's row club, Rex's Dive shop, or a New England lobster/clambake boat ride to the Norwalk Islands. Norwalk's Calf Pasture Beach is a quick 2 mile bike ride or a 15 minute canoe ride away with waterfront dining, a miniature golf course, large dog park, playground and full marina with kayak or sailboat rentals. There are too many other activities in Norwalk to list and what Norwalk can't provide, is guaranteed to be within close proximity of this central location.
A full guide of the area, inclusive of all indoor/outdoor activities, is provided at the property so you are never left looking for something to do. Of course many of our visitors are often just as happy to do nothing in our cozy Connecticut home.
We chose this area because it is a culturally diverse and creative, artistic community. There is no limit to the number of activities you can find to do within a quick walk, bike ride, boat ride or drive away. We love being on the coast in a historic New England neighborhood, where every season offers its own unique beauty.
We are located at the end of a dead end on a waterfront peninsula, within 1 mile of the heart of downtown South Norwalk. You get the best of both worlds with quiet serenity yet close proximity to restaurants, movies, bars, etc.
