About Deborah Schwartz
Our family has owned this house for a very long time, and we have had joyous years of using the house for summer fun, Christmas time parties, lounging on the porch, watching fireworks on the fourth of July, fishing off the pier, and great nights of cooking for large groups of friends and family. Some of us live in NYC, others in Washington, and others in Connecticut. This is our favorite vacation place.
Deborah Schwartz purchased this House in 1927
Why Deborah Schwartz chose Woodmont
This is a magical house, with warm rich wood and stone details, on the beach, with lots of lovely rooms for rest and privacy, and spacious communal spaces for parties, family reunions, or work retreats.
What makes this House unique
Great location on the beach, perfect for large gatherings, but the house has so much space, and so many remote niches that it is also easy to find a quiet place to curl up and read a book. Private space and party space all wrapped into one incredibly beautiful house!

We had a delightful stay at 40 Beach Ave. With family coming from Brooklyn, Manhattan and Stamford, the property was a relaxing trip for everyone on the MetroNorth line to Milford, and then a short drive (10-15 min) to the house. Located in a quiet neighborhood directly across a one-way street from a nice sandy beach and fishing pier, the house is in a wonderful location; great for early morning walks, swims or paddle board excursions. In the summer, being fully equipped with beach towels, beach chairs, paddle boards, a ping pong table, and an outside grill, the property makes it easy to spend your time outside, and with central AC, very pleasant when you return inside! The kitchen is nicely stocked with quality appliances and with Whole Foods, Trader Joes and Costco a short drive away (10-15 min), meals and their preparation were a fun family activity and more enjoyable than any of the restaurants we tried. Drinks on the upper deck while watching the fireworks made for memorable evenings. While we did not meet the owner, Deborah was very responsive to our texts and provided easy access to the property. While a better quality hair dryer would have been nice and the TV should be upsized and upgraded, we would definitely stay at the property again.
Many thanks for your thoughtful and detailed description of your stay at 40 Beach Avenue. We are so pleased you enjoyed the house, and hope that you will return in the future!
Spectacular home, perfect weather, and special times with family!
Our 2 week stay was perfect! The charm and beauty of this home was an added bonus. Everyone loved the stone house and it’s fantastic location. Have already booked our 2nd Annual Family Vacation for 2019!
The property is beautiful and well-maintained. Perfect for a family reunion!
It is truly our “home-away-from home”. So inviting
Home filled with character and warmth!
Lovely house by the ocean was perfect for a recent family celebration! Plenty of room for everyone with a view from every window.
A beautiful and warm home - full of character, cozy places to hang out, wonderful views and lots of room. And location right on the beach can’t be beat! Highly recommended!
Beautiful location and comfortable stay
We had a great stay at the arts and crafts house! Plenty of comfortable seating and sleeping areas, with an updated kitchen and beautiful location! In the winter, it was a bit drafty in the living room area, but the fireplace worked great and the rest of the house heated well. We hope to stay there again :)
