Large, bright, family-friendly home close to UCONN

Beautiful, clean, bright and fully furnished--ready for your stay in New England! Halfway between Boston and New York City. All utilities and internet included.

The spacious open-concept living area has a fully stocked kitchen with custom tile work, a gas cook-top and plenty of counter space. The attached dining room seats 8 comfortably and overlooks the wooded front yard. The living room has a full upright piano, television and video player and LOTS of books. Also on the main floor: one bedroom with a single bed, a full bathroom and one bedroom/toy room with a double bed.

Upstairs you’ll find 3 bedrooms and a full bathroom: a large master bedroom with a comfortable pocket-coil, queen-sized bed and ensuite (with Jacuzzi tub), a small, sunny bedroom with a single bed and a larger bedroom with bunk beds.

The lower floor has the rec room, laundry facilities and an office.

Our home is ideally suited for a family with kids: two sunny play spaces, lots of toys, a huge backyard and sturdy tree fort, bikes, an air hockey table and a whole room for Lego! Note that we no longer have baby gear, but might be able to acquire some for you if needed.

We love our community and location! The yard and neighborhood are peaceful and treed, while groceries, shopping, libraries and the University of Connecticut are just minutes away.

The University of Connecticut and Storrs Center (groceries, restaurants, shopping, daycare, community center) are only a 20 min. bike ride or 5 min. car ride away. Storrs Center is a vibrant local gathering spot with free concerts and events all summer long!
