About Karen Coan

I have enjoyed the beach house my entire life. My uncle built the house in 1928 and it has remained in our family since then. My family lived here year-round until 1950, and then we enjoyed summers at the beach, working, playing, and maintaining the house. It remains a getaway year round for family members--walks on the beach any time of year are a treat.

Karen Coan purchased this cottage in 1983

What makes this cottage unique

Because our beach house is back closer to the road, we enjoy a larger beachfront area than our neighbors affording us more space to lounge, play games, have cookouts, etc. Parking is in close proximity across the road.

This location is ideal for walks along both the beach and the street. Very private, friendly atmosphere. Home is convenient to golf courses, jet skiing, restaurants, antiquing, entertainment and shopping depending on your interests.

See nesting osprey to the north, and the lights of Orient Point lighthouse and Plum Island to the south, the Old Saybrook lighthouse to the west and New London lighthouse to the east.

Beach association offers children's activities (movie nights, painting, scavenger hunts, July 4th parade, etc.) and beach general store (close walking distance) is a fun place for both kids and kids-at-heart, as well as a source for the daily paper and the basics.

Tennis courts are open for use at the end of the street and bike riding is a popular pastime. Famous Sound View donuts can be purchased at your doorstep from baskets brought around by local children.
