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 Connecticut Shore

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!

Beautiful House by the Beach - Perfect for Family Gatherings

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Debbie's house for the weekend of my wedding in New Haven - we invited a bunch of my parents' old friends to stay with us. Those friends are often super picky about the cleanliness of where they stay. Debbie's house was perfect - well stocked with supplies, really clean, and perfectly located. All the guests mentioned that they'd definitely stay there again.

Fabulous house for a family celebration!

  • 5 of 5

Twelve of our family from ages 10 to 83 gathered at this beautiful Arts & Crafts house in Milford right on the sound for a long weekend to celebrate a host of family events. The bedrooms are lovely and spacious as are the living and dining rooms and eat-in kitchen/sitting room. It is especially nice to have a pantry and refrigerator full of necessities to use if needed, in case you forgot something. There is a very nice backyard with beautiful plantings and plenty of room for parking in front of the garage. In addition there is efficient air conditioning if needed which we did for one very hot 88 degree day in late Sept. The house may be old but everything is up to date and newly redecorated. All in all, a perfectly wonderful house!

One-of-a-kind home that's very well equipt

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, historic home right on the beach. We had several family members who flew in and very much appreciated that the home came fully outfitted not only with the in-home items you'd expect, but also kayaks, wake boards, beach chairs, and more beach towels than you will ever need. Even though this is a historic home, it was nice having a very modern kitchen, bathrooms, laundry and central air throughout. Great front porch overlooking the beach, and great for just sitting and watching the people strolling by enjoying the beautiful views. In fact, a few people stopped to give us details of some of the homes history. Very special vacation.
