About Anne Haviland

I am married with grown children and two wonderful dogs. I live and work in the local area as a private chef and caterer. My family has owned the house since 1908. It is now entering it's sixth generation.

Anne Haviland purchased this house in 1908

Why Anne Haviland chose New London

This is a family house which has been owned for over 100 years. It has the old bones of a home built in 1908 by my great grand mother. We have had many updates over the generations.

What makes this house unique

The house is directly on the beach and Long Island Sound, with views of Ledge Light Lighthouse and Fisher's Island.


Car: recommended

Mystic Aquarium and Mystic Seaport are wonderful and the town is also great for restaurants and shopping. The submarine base in Groton is also a spot worth visiting.Two casinos are nearby.

Wonderful Beach House

  • 5 of 5

The house was a great fit for our group of 12 adults and four young children - lots of bedrooms supplied with comfortable beds, closets and dressers, lamps and clocks, and a large living room and dining room with lots of seating spaces in both. The views of the ocean from around the house are wonderful and the covered porch with awnings is very large and comfortable, with rockers and a dining table and benches. The kitchen is very large, with enough space and counter surface to allow 6 adults to comfortably prepare meals together, and the hatch to the living room lets the kitchen crew see the ocean and talk to people in the living room and the porch. The kitchen is stocked with lots of pots, pans and kitchen tools, as well as plates and utensils for a large group. We particularly liked the house's accomodations for children - toys, children's books, and children's plates and utensils were easily found. The beach is steps down from the house and it was easy for both children and adults to play in the water, swim, play on the beach, kayak and sail. The house was clean and well-maintained, with lovely age and character - and we loved that the outdoor shower even has a little changing space!
