Video attached! A mere two and one half miles from Yale University and former home to one of Yale’s Law School Dean’s sits one of the most prestigious properties offered in Hamden in over two decades. Quaint Marshall Road gracefully meanders up to this spectacular 3.2 acre estate; referred to by some as one half soccer field and one half exotic arboretum. Once within the estates private, yet welcoming, environment one forgets just how close you are to New Haven’s plethora of fine restaurants and diverse entertainment; or how convenient it is to travel to New York or Boston. Walk to East Rock Park, Lake Whitney, or the New Haven Country Club. Or, simply enjoy your surroundings pretending you are comfortably nestled within a Vermont-like environment. Harken back to the days when neighborhood friends got together on the front yard to enjoy a game of soccer or touch football. Or, remember when creative gardening set you atop the neighborhood pecking order. Speaking of gardening, beginning in 1950, the home was occupied by a family who enjoyed gardening and planting exotic specimen trees. The former President of the Garden Club of New Haven made certain that something colorful greeted its beloved caretakers each month while her husband carefully selected and located specimen trees.

The Perfect Getaway! Nestled in the safe and serene community of Stony Creek sits 25 West Point Road; a thoughtfully appointed, two bedroom residence boasting a dock and refreshing views of the Thimble Islands. A perfect launch point for the Thimble Islands. Let’s roll back the Shoreline clock to those who summered in Branford, those who lived on either side of the turn of the last century. For many, the best part of summer was Stony Creek; a place that represented weeks of fresh air, sunshine, good food and no mosquitoes. During that time Branford was a mecca for families looking to escape industrialized cities. Dotted along it’s shoreline were large rambling hotels, at least nine to be exact, that offered verandas where summer breezes (back then there was no air conditioning) could be enjoyed along with local produce and fresh seafood. 25 West Point Road captures unique glimpses of these days gone by. The homes expansive back yard abuts wildlife abundant wetlands with somewhat distant views of the old trolley lines; traversed by visitors. Walk out on the home’s dock and experience a sensory overload provided by expansive views of the Thimble Islands. The home itself offers an open floor plan with separate Master Bedroom suite privately tucked away on the home’s second floor. Enjoy a morning cup of coffee on your deck or, better yet, an evening cocktail on your dock trying to imagine what life was like during much simpler and less complicated times.

Or sit back on the patio and enjoy views of a tranquil pond and beyond to unspoiled agricultural land. Once inside the main house you’ll immediately be transported back in time.
