hot property ‘Comfortable living’ at waterfront home in Shippan Point
If you are looking for a custom designed, truly one-of-a-kind direct waterfront home with privacy and relaxed living, then look no further than this gem on Ocean View Drive in the St. David Bluff’s Association.
“This home reflects comfortable living and a feel-good sense of being at peace with the sea and the sandy beach,” said June Rosenthal, William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty’s co-listing agent, along with Linda Sentementes.
The 32-year-old 5,032-square-foot gem, Rosenthal said, “has an extraordinary and intriguing high, wide and handsome open interior with extensive views of water everywhere.”
While water is one of the biggest assets and attractions, Rosenthal noted that while the home is close to the beach, it’s not in a flood zone.
The home has a spacious lower level walkout with an impressive family room of window walls and a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace. The lower level, Rosenthal said, is ready to impress with a wine closet, an office/bedroom/bath, storage and an exercise studio with glass doors leading to the ground level patio that abuts the beach.
The home — which has three bedrooms, four bathrooms and eight rooms in total — also has a curved window-walled living room “with a spectacular glass ceiling and fossil shell tile floors,” Rosenthal said.
Rosenthal added: “Stand behind the kitchen sink and marvel as everything opens to the two-story living room and dining areas to synchronize those captivating views.”
There is also a soaring 34-foot stone fireplace, a powder room and a terrace off the dining room.
“The whole house is a powerful expanse of space and light,” Rosenthal said.
Then, there is the upstairs master suite with a luxurious master bath.
“(It is a) very special master bedroom with its own terrace and large glass wall to take in the water views from that second story level,” she said.
Two other sleeping quarters and a bathroom complete the upstairs, Rosenthal said
The landscaping is meticulous, she said. There is also grass frontage and garden-club variety plantings surround the patio and grounds. There is also a two-car garage with a kitchen entry and a Belgian block edged circular driveway.
“This home has that ‘wow’ factor,” said Rosenthal. “This house can be classified as ‘dramatic simplicity.”’
The private association includes shared tennis courts and a beach. The home, which sits on 0.27 acres, is located in Stamford’s Shippan Point. The point is a peninsula jutting into Long Island Sound.
The home has all the advantages of living close to downtown Stamford, including work, train, library, the arts, theater and wonderful restaurants.
