Would it be a wild guess to say that you have not seen the inside of the house?

It might be a good step in the right direction.

Also, if you want someone to answer your question, you might identify the house some way.

Good luck and may God bless

Hi there,

There are a lot of people that commute from the Shoreline (Guilford/Madison/Branford) into NYC.
Metro North does end in New Haven, but there are direct connections to the Shoreline East system which runs from New Haven to Old Saybrook. Taking the train is a definite option and is very simple. Parking is free at the Shoreline stations and they line up the trains to coincide with the MN ones going in each direction- from Guilford to New Haven it's 3.50/OW but you can get a monthly pass as well.

Here is the link to Shoreline East: I've used it many times and it's super easy!

I also drive in often, it's 90 minutes door-to-door from downtown Guilford to Midtown (in normal traffic of course :)

There is definately a rental market in Guilford and Madison, there aren't many apartments available- I wouldn't anticipate any problem at all finding a tenant. You would just want to find out if the home has a legal apartment or if you would need to get approval. I have experience in that area and can help you figure out how to go about it if needed.

I'm happy to help you with your search on the Shoreline, my email is

In some markets, there is currently appreciation, but Trulia does not always have accurate numbers. The best solution is to contact a Realtor in your area of interest to get accurate figures. All markets are different during good and bad times. ... more

I have lived here for 13 years. If you are looking for a unit- look for updated windows as the original ones leak air like crazy and the screens let in the bugs. New windows solve those problems.

Also be careful about comparing previous sales prices- the units are not all the same- even if you break it down to price per sq. ft - a few of us have put a lot of money into our condos -overhauling kitchens, new rugs bathroom improvements, while others have left them as they were when built in 1979.

The pool is great- very well maintained - very clean. the tennis court has had recent improvements, the setting is lovely. The neighbors are friendly but not nosy -very quiet. New roofs in past few years- still a few more to do around the mail box area- a lot of work has been done to hot water heaters recently. In last few years the association has spent a great deal of money doing the usual 30 year upgrade to systems etc- like any home after 30 years stuff needs replacing. The Association is well managed by Margolis Management company and by a board of residents.

Quonnipaug Hills is a lovely complex with approximately 200 units made up of 5 separate associations governed by their own by-laws, rules and regulations.

It is affordable country living at its best. Nestled in a private wooded setting there are hiking trails and lake access and you can walk to the Lake Quonnipaug town beach. There is also a tennis court in the complex too.

I've shown many units there and each one is unique in style and location within the complex.

If I can be of further assistance please feel free to contact me.
