This beautiful 5,400 sq ft waterfront, classic Fenwick cottage has been in the Grant-Hepburn family for four generations. The original 'cottage' section dates to 1871, one of the oldest in The Borough. It has been expanded to a six bedroom, five bath compound, which can comfortably accommodate multiple generations under one roof. In Fenwick, you can play tennis, golf and relax in the glow of sunsets over the water. Steps from the beach, this refuge has a long wrap around screened porch, ideal for al fresco dining, and views to Saybrook Light House and beyond. The water side of the house has been lovingly preserved, augmented by newly renovated bathrooms. The spacious living room has a large fireplace and bay windows with a window seat looking out toward the lighthouse. Adjoining is a bright family/yoga room. Stairs lead to the South Wing with three charming bedrooms with water views. Unusually high ceilings and a fireplace grace the formal dining room, encircled by blue stone patios and small flower and vegetable gardens. The North Wing stairs lead to the master suite and a large office. A renovated private wing is a year round in-law apartment designed for optimum privacy - with bedroom, kitchenette, office and bath. Cedar sauna and detached garage complete this special property. Fenwick is located halfway between New York and Boston. Residents have access to the famed links, tennis, swimming, and the yacht club.
