Colonial Has a Two-Car Garage, Barn and Saltwater Pool
By Gretchen A. Peck
The 2004-built colonial, on 1.22 acres at 589 Groton Long Point Road in Noank, is on the market for $949,000. This three- or four-bedroom home has 3,466 square feet of interior space and attached garaging for two cars.
Broker Gay Tyler Gallagher and Realtor Katie O’Leary, with Gay Tyler Gallagher Real Estate, are the listing agents.
“A number of new additions to this property make it particularly attractive to a discerning buyer,” O’Leary said of the home.
For example, the owners updated the lighting throughout the house “to reflect modern coastal living,” O’Leary pointed out.
The floor plan of the main level begins just inside the front door. On either side are a formal dining room and formal living room. The foyer also leads to the interior spaces along the back of the house, with an eat-in kitchen, a partial bath, a large family room with a wood-burning fireplace, and exterior doors that open out to a backyard deck.
A first-floor laundry sits tucked away from the public rooms. And there’s an interior door that leads out to the attached two-car garage. The deck affords room for seating and dining furnishings, and there’s lots of lounging and entertaining space on the paved patio surrounding the pool.
Among the house’s interiors, earnest buyers will discover built-ins and hardwood floors, a double-height foyer with inlaid hardwood, wainscotting, and interior French doors.
The kitchen is designed with a granite-topped island, illuminated by pendant lighting. The appliances are by Viking, including the range, hood, and double ovens. There’s a breakfast nook for casual dining and a dedicated dining room for more formal occasions. The Realtors note that it can accommodate a table for 12.
Upstairs, there are three bedrooms, including the primary suite with a private bath and two walk-in closets.
The two additional bedrooms share a full bath. There are two other bonus rooms on this floor, as well, which could be leveraged as an additional bedroom, home office, playroom or secondary family room, perhaps.
In the lower level, there’s plenty of storage space, plus a large rec room, a wall of wine storage, and a separate space for a home gym/exercise room.
To the landscaping, the homeowners added composite white-picket fencing and tall arborvitae trees to add privacy to the saltwater pool, spa, and outdoor living space.
In 2021, the owners added a “quintessential New England red barn,” with water and electrical services. It’s a two-story structure with dormers and a charming cupola. It’s a flexible outbuilding that could be used to store a boat, tools and landscaping maintenance equipment. Or, it could be finished and leveraged as additional living space or a separate home office.
O’Leary remarked on the local amenities and destinations — perks of this particular location. She cited local world-class restaurants, an abundance of state parks to explore—including nearby Haley Farm State Park—and glorious sandy beaches. Noank’s village is a designated historic site, listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
“Let’s not forget the rail service to Boston or New York City — as easy as getting to downtown Mystic,” she suggested.
“There’s nothing left for a buyer to do except enjoy the year-round beauty of this turnkey property,” said O’Leary.
