From the Zillow listing:


It doesn’t get better than this direct waterfront 3 bedroom 1.5 bath Colonial. This house offers gorgeous water views from every window. Set up high on rock outcropping above the Farm River — SO NO FLOOD INSURANCE IS REQUIRED. This updated home has so much to offer with its rare pine floors throughout that have been refinished, open floor plan, beautifully remodeled kitchen with solid cherry cabinets, quartz counter tops and new appliances, updated bathrooms and living room with gas wood burning stove. The primary bedroom and second bedroom were rebuilt with larger closets, and the four season porch was transformed into a winterized office/ family room offering dramatic water views from all 3 large windows. Enjoy being able to kayak to a nature preserve with all kinds of wild life or out to the Long Island Sound to swim on a private island with white sandy beaches. Or stroll less than one block to the town of Branford and enjoy a private beach and local restaurants. Minutes to all the Shoreline towns and less than 10 minutes to downtown New Haven. Fish off of the front covered porch, watch the East Haven trolly come by, catch blue crabs and feed the swans as you enjoy a serene breakfast on the river. 4.5 year roof along with way too many improvements to list. This is a must-see riverfront home.
