A rare opportunity to live in the City Point Historic District. This sunny 7-room home with its inviting front porch sits a block from L.I. Sound yet is just 5 minutes to Yale, Yale hospitals, downtown, I-95 and 91, as well as the train station and Yale's West Haven medical facility. Off the entry hall, French doors welcome you into a spacious living room from which more French doors open into the dining room and kitchen. The extra-large kitchen (with granite/stainless, storage pantry and stylish half-bath) offers a combination of modern and old-fashioned that's perfect both for gourmet cooking and lingering at the breakfast table. At the back, an office with a private entrance overlooks a large, well-kept yard. All have gleaming hardwood floors. Upstairs a vault-ceilinged master bedroom, a second bedroom, and a small sitting room (which could make a 3rd bedroom) await. The spacious wainscoted bathroom mixes old and new for warmth and style. A potential in-law cottage or income producing separate home is all but ready in the charming, restored carriage house at the back of property. Complete with its own private patio, it's waiting for dry-wall (all work approved with City permits). About City Point: Along with a lovely, boat-filled marina, there's a cozy breakfast-lunch restaurant and a top-reviewed dinner restaurant which both overlook the water; also it's the site of New Haven's sought-after Sound magnet high school. No wonder homes rarely come up for sale there!
