Escape to where the living is easy in this quintessential Short Beach beauty! This is not your cookie-cutter colonial-- instead, this inviting home offers lots of fun and flexible spaces! The first floor welcomes you with an open living/dining area with a nook perfect for an office. A bedroom with walk-in closet (and nearby full bath/laundry) could be more living space if needed. The kitchen is bright and sunny with a gas range and a huge pantry for all your storage needs. The second floor has another bedroom and full bath, plus more light-filled, flexible space for working or working out! A cute balcony overlooks the back yard. The top floor is home to the third bedroom, loaded with beachy charm and plenty of storage! Outside you will find extensive Trex decking, perfect for entertaining friends. The yard is designed for low maintenance and feels private, nestled beside your (not too close) neighbors! Two driveways allow for plenty of off-street parking. This home has been well-maintained and offers lots of updates. Leave boring behind and come explore the fun and funky community of Short Beach! Walk to the beach, minutes to the charming center of Branford, 10 minutes to New Haven/Yale, 75 miles to NYC.
