DIRECT WATERFRONT AND COVETED DOCK
Old Greenwich is the oldest of the seven hamlets that make up Greenwich, Ct. It was founded in 1640 by Jeffrey Ferris, who purchased land from the Siwanoy Indians in exchange for 25 coats. One of the most distinctive features of Old Greenwich is Tod’s Point, now a 170 acre park with beach fronts, a town sailing club, walking paths and natural preserve.
Originally, Tod’s Point was the 147 acre private estate of J. Kennedy Tod, a gentleman who made his fortune investing in railroads. Tod moved to what was then called Sound Beach in 1882, with his bride and for many years was the only daily commuter to New York City. When Tod bought his waterfront land in 1889, waterfront property was not something that anyone wanted. The perception was that water property was difficult to access and thus, had limited value.
With water on three sides and a private dock leading to LI Sound this house has open floor plan for easy coastal living. Set in a cove in Old Greenwich’s private water community, Shorelands, sits this contemporary style two story home.
Almost every room has waterviews which can be enjoyed from the many window walls that bring the outdoors in, and drench the home in sunlight and mesmerizing marine life.
First floor has living/dining room with fireplace and two exposures to water, kitchen with sitting area leading to terrace overlooking the water, master suite overlooking pond/stream, library and guest room. Second floor has 60′ family room with tower feature, master suite, guest bedroom, and waterfront balcony. Close to Greenwich Point, town, and train.
