Beautiful waterfront home with exquisite historic details and a great layout for entertaining. In New London's heyday, the Pequot Colony section of the city (southeast) was a summer playground for many wealthy families in the northeast. Formerly part of the famed Pequot Colony casino, this historic home has over 3,000 square feet of living space that has been well cared for and updated. This four bedroom, three and a half bath 'summer cottage' has a formal living and dining rooms with rounded bay windows that face east to the Thames River. The living room has a working wood-burning fireplace and is covered in pecky cypress with a hint of 1930's Egyptian Art Deco. Wood floors are the primary flooring throughout the home. The kitchen has been expanded with the addition of custom cabinetry commissioned by the present owner to mimic the originals from the 1930's but with high end appliances (subzero fridge). The original large butler's pantry separates the kitchen from the formal dining room which opens up out to the stone patio and then to a private beach. New items have been brought in when necessary, but many of the baths and sinks have been restored showing their original charm. Additionally there is a detached garage with a restored cupola between the main home and the street. The estate has been professionally designed and landscaped with an irrigation system, electric fence (for the four-legged) and a whole house generator as well as new mechanicals.
