Home Details for 1001 Ocean Ave

Single Family, Other - New London, CT
Located within a half mile of the eastern edge of Long Island Sound is a home of stature. A mansion of nearly 8,000 square feet, 1001 Ocean Avenue in New London, CT has numerous amenities of specialized artisans from the early 1900’s. Driving past the stone pillars onto the 2 acre estate, the first thing that comes into view is the Georgian architectural style of the grand facade. Five massive granite steps lead up to the 964 sq ft deck that stretches out across the entire front of the house. Four twenty foot doric columns reach up over the second floor supporting the architrave and c...ornice of rake molding in the classical entablature. Step past four smaller columns in the ornate entranceway onto a breathtaking mosaic tile floor. A curved staircase winds its way down into the foyer from above and plaster of paris molding graces the ten foot high ceilings. On the right is the 12’ x 13’ drawing room with the mosaic tile, elaborate woodwork, molding and one of the five fireplaces in the home. To the left is the spacious 20’ x 30’ parlor and like most rooms in the house allows abundant light in from the oversized windows. Again, the mosaic tile floor, ornate woodwork and the vaulted ceilings with the plaster of paris dental molding let you know that you are truly in a special place. Off of the parlor is a magnificent sunroom which also sports the tile and molding. Next you wander past the bar into the great room. Large enough for a ping pong table or billiards table at one end it is also a perfect TV room. Sliding glass doors open to a curved wooden deck with a beautiful wrought iron railing. To the right of the spiral staircase is the 16’ x 26’ dining room. The seven foot tall, ten foot wide semi-circle curved window immediately commands your attention. Once you finish taking in the view you notice the plaster of paris shell shaped shelving built into the wall and the intricately carved Hawaiian Sideboard brought to the house by a previous owner. Capt. Clifford H Belden, Cornell Engineering Class of 1899, (http://rem.ax/1BA4dua) is listed in the Connecticut State Guard Officers Reserve Corps in the Connecticut State Register and Manual of 1920 by the Secretary of the State. Mystic Seaport recognizes Capt. Belden as the Master of the schooner barge, Hubut, built in Noank in 1910. (http://rem.ax/1E1rl8V) Mrs. Belden was known for hosting the regional Flower Show in 1936 on the grounds with judges from Old Lyme to Westerly. (http://rem.ax/1BA4dua) Leaving the dining room you pass through the ample butler pantry with its wide, deep shelves for large serving dishes. The custom drawers make for easy living and the supplemental electric heat in the sunlit 17’ x 17’ kitchen is welcome in winter. The curved corners in some of the nine bedrooms are a nice touch as are all the doorways with their Victorian Era fluted jams, crown molding, triple hung brass doors and crystal knobs. The Master Bedroom is a roomy 18’ x 27’, the next largest is 13’ x 18’ while the
