Elegant and Beautiful Classic Victorian Waterfront Home with central air FEATURED IN MANY ARTICLES, with wrap

around porch and stunning 260 degree unobstructed views of Long Island Sound, Tuxis Island, and Gull Rock! Located on Middle Beach Rd., Madison's gold coast

Beautifully furnished and totally equipped. Butler's pantry off eat in kitchen, mud room, sunroom, two stone fireplaces, elegant large living room and dining room, perfect for entertaining. Bedrooms are large and spacious. Garage and portico and wrap around porch

Views of water from every room in house! Close to village and beaches! Minutes to Hartford, 90 miles from Manhattan and 2.5 hours from Boston. Fine shops, restaurants and cultural attractions are available throughout the region. The Shoreline East train runs along the Shoreline with connection to New Haven and Grand Central. A refreshing alternative to the Hamptons.

Located in the village of Madison, and described as 'a hidden gem of a beach resort in Connecticut that offers a taste of Nantucket much closer to home.' NY1's Travel reporter Valarie D'Elia filed the following report.

'Nantucket Island is no longer a day of travel away - its salty New England flavor can be found in Madison, Conn. This manicured town located on Long Island Sound will delight anyone who is a fan of Nantucket, located a few hours further east.

The fact that Madison is closer and cheaper than Nantucket should make it easier for purists to forgive the comparison.

Enjoy Madison's sandy beaches, world class book store (RJ Julia), and art cinema, excellent school systems (if renting from Sept to June), yet proximity to Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun Casinos, Mystic Seaport, Yale, Museums, highly rated New Haven Restaurants,the Thimble Islands, Essex, Lyme art academy and Museum and other Connecticut River towns, Chamard vineyards, and the shopping outlets in neighboring Clinton, and Westbrook, CT

Fall retreat

  • 5 of 5

Three generations of our family spent a fabulous fall week at this home on the beach. We saw the sunrise and sunset each day, took long walks along the beach, and had great meals along the shoreline. Looking forward to returning!

Special Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful week at this beach home - we already miss the wonderful ocean views! Mary, the owner, was a very responsive landlord - when my husband told her I was complaining to him about dull kitchen knives she showed up with an entire block of brand new knives! We enjoyed the week very much.

Lovely seaside house

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely old New England house with a spectacular porch and spacious indoor rooms. The kitchen is very well equipped, the bedrooms are just as pictured. The fifth bedroom is tucked up in the attic so only usable in the summer. We were there over Thanksgiving, a family of 5 adults and twin five-year-olds and we settled in comfortably. The owner was very responsive to a WiFi problem and despite a big storm, Comcast was on the job at 8 am. Views of Long Island Sound from all the windows. Definitely recommend it.
