If you're raising more than just your standard of living, then you will appreciate all that comes with this 2542 sq ft, 5 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath Colonial. Located in the desirable Sherwood Forest subdivision of Gales Ferry on a private lot with an in-ground salt water pool and large rear deck, this home is perfect for summer entertaining. Whether you are outside taking a dip, enjoying the wooded views from your light-filled sunroom or rocking on your covered front porch you will certainly appreciate your time at home. The fireplace adorned family room opens to both the kitchen and the heated sunroom and is just perfect for year-round enjoyment. Gales Ferry is centered around Route 12 and is one of the main commercial corridors in the town. The area is largely residential and contains 2 national register historic districts, a post office and library. Each year in June, the Yale-Harvard regatta brings rowing teams and spectators to the riverfront and life to each school's boathouse, both of which are located in the village which developed as a result of having a ferry to Uncasville located at this site, and from which it was named. With great restaurants, shopping and casinos you will never be at a loss for something to do in this area.
