It’s “country modern” with an open floor plan and high ceilings. Those huge windows provide tons of light throughout the whole house. The main living areas have wood beams, tile floors, a wood stove, fireplace and plenty of sky lights. The kitchen has been redesigned by a professional chef! There’s a lush garden on the grounds with views of the cliffs leading up to the mesa, as well as ponderosa, pinion, juniper and scrub oak, and even a chicken coop!

This charming cape is in the sleepy village of Osterville, just minutes from New London proper. It’s nestled on your own private pond with otters and migrating birds. The home was built in 1850 and still has lots of its historic charm. The living room is sunny with cheerful yellow trim. There’s an upstairs office with built-in bookcases and a game room with exposed wood beams. The big kitchen has classic white cabinets and a sunny glass door to the side yard. The master bedroom has a spectacular garden tub. You’ll never want to leave the idyllic grounds that have stone walls, old trees, and, of course, that gorgeous pond.

Easton was founded in 1710 and sits on the east shore of the Chesapeake Bay. This is the only house of its kind in Easton! It was designed and built by the current owner to fulfill his wife’s wish to live in a “loft-style” home! It’s almost 3,000 square feet!! And it’s “handicapped adaptable.” The neat-as-a-pin grounds are professionally landscaped. The open floor plan makes the main living areas feel even bigger than they are. The windows are placed to give plenty of light with complete privacy. The entryway and living room have soaring ceilings. The open kitchen has blonde wood cabinets, a breakfast bar and plenty of storage, and there’s a separate garage with extra storage space.
