From the Zillow listing:


Do not miss this opportunity to own a great 1 acre  lot overlooking Hidden Lake!  First time on this property has been offered in decades!  There are wonderful lake views from most of the sprawling level yard and many rooms in the house.  The brick patio in the back also has partial lake views, making for a perfect outdoor oasis. Featuring hardwood floors through out most rooms and many rooms with fresh paint.  A wonderful wood burning fire place in the living room.   Custom maple cabinets and tons of storage in the remodeled kitchen.  Featuring two larger bedrooms and one smaller bedroom that could be used as a nursery or office space.  A walk out basement.  This could be the perfect starter home or down sizing home.  The lot size may open opportunities to put an addition on the house if you did want a little more space.  And there is a great spot on the back side that is just calling for a large deck to enjoy the views of the lake. Close to Route 9 (approx.  7 minutes) and close to Rte 81.  Only 15 minutes to Shoreline Beaches, restaurants and local attractions.  I-95 approx. 15 min, Yale approx 30-40 min, several stables, golf courses and some private school options within driving distance.
