About

Modern saltbox on private, 4-acre cul de sac made up of wooded areas, clearings and two brooks, linked by stone paths. The grounds were once on the the Connecticut native plant and wildflower registry/tour, and the house was built with an orientation to the grounds. Two-story windows and skylights give maximal views. The house was built as two-units, a main house (1 BR + sleeping nook, 2 BA) with an attached in-law apartment (loft BR + studio and Ba). The second unit will remain vacant (see below). With advance notice, there may be an option to rent both, and to open the two units to each other. Distinctive interior features include high ceilings, a sliding-door balcony on the second floor, high quality kitchen/laundry appliances and surfaces, HSI/Wifi, hardwood floors, reading/sleeping nook, wraparound deck, large bookcases, lots of closet space, and a cool (temperature) basement. The house will be repainted on the interior/ and get an exterior touch-up this spring. Grounds: BBQ fire pit, hammock, paths, a small and a large brook. Ideal for a couple with a child, or single academic or writer; someone who likes being immersed in nature but appreciates easy access to amenities, including Hamden Mall (10 min) family farm and store (5 min), stunning recreational lake Wintergreen (5 min), Yale University (20 min). 2 hours point to point to NYC Grand Central. Great location if you jog/run/mountain bike. The house has high-efficiency central heating and AC. Utilities are not included. Currently 70% furnished (beds, sofas, chairs, flat screen TV), and can be rented either partially furnished, or without furniture. Pets (dogs/cats) are welcome. Prefer full semester lets, or two consecutive semesters (Fall/Spring, with summer off) but this is negotiable. There is an attached in-law unit that could be opened to the main part of the house. It's slated for future work / additions (not during tenancy). If I have advance notice and the renter needs more space, it adds 800 sq ft and one more bedroom to the total area, with walk-in Italian-tile bathroom/shower and additional deck.
