Please note—ours is one of the earliest, shingled homes in Groton Long Point. To protect its unique character, it has had minimal remodeling. There is a dishwasher, large new refrigerator, and updated electrical panel w/ circuit breakers. No TV now, but cable service is available in this neighborhood. DSL modem is currently installed. Both bathrooms and a spacious kitchen retain their vintage character. Washer & dryer are in basement, which has separate ground-level entrance.

The house is raised on stone pillars; two exterior sets of steps lead to the porch and first floor. There is one interior staircase from living room to bedrooms and full bath on second floor. Our home would not be practical for everyone, but it could be the right nest for you.
