Things we love about this property crush:

This is your classic coveted New England seaside home but—surprise!—it was built in just 2015, so you’ll get all modern updates.

The architect-designed shingled home in Old Saybrook was constructed with today’s living in mind. A 20-foot vaulted ceiling with wooden beams looks over the open floor plan, including an airy living and dining space. The kitchen comes with Shaker-style cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and Carrera marble countertops. There is also a sunroom with views of the Long Island Sound that would make a superb guest space.

Also on this floor is a master suite with an impressive walk-in closet and en suite bathroom with more Carrera marble and subway tiling. Two additional bedrooms and another full bath round out the ground floor.

Upstairs is a large loft that’s ready for whatever the new owner desires: perhaps a library, extra bedroom, or an office space.

And the location couldn’t be more clutch—near Main Street, by the Amtrak station, this seaside location between NYC and Boston is a suburban dream.
