Behind an unassuming facade lies one of Branford's best-kept secrets. Step through the gate to uncover a waterfront paradise on the Farm River, a classic riverfront home with breathtaking views that change with the seasons, daily, and even hourly. Experience the best of outdoor living with multiple decks and balconies, perfect for soaking in the stunning views. Inside, the home is equally inviting with custom features throughout and a comfortable, open floor plan. The main floor provides the option of one-level living with two bedrooms, a full bath and sliders to an expansive deck. Ascend the sturdy spiral staircase to the primary bedroom with unparalleled views of the Farm River, both from inside and from an exterior balcony. This level also includes a versatile room, currently an office and potentially an additional bedroom. Enjoy river views from multiple garden areas, including a terraced garden with a pathway to your private dock on the river's central channel, ideal for fishing, launching a kayak or mooring a boat. This is a bird lover's delight with year-round sightings of songbirds, sea birds, and shorebirds. Walk to nearby restaurants, beaches and trails. History buffs will appreciate the home's proximity to the former headquarters of legendary Prohibition-era bootlegger Nellie Green, who smuggled illicit alcohol to speakeasies from just across the river. This hidden gem combines the tranquility of waterfront living with modern comforts and historic charm.
