    The contemporary compound at 22 Prindiville Avenue, Waterford, is newly offered to the market today. The owners are asking $925,000 for the 3.24-acre property, which includes a main house, an attached three-car garage, a companion in-law home, and an inground pool.

    Kathleen “Kathy” Cavasino, a Realtor with RE/MAX On the Bay in Niantic, is the seller’s agent. She shared a letter from the homeowners with Welcome Home, in which they wrote about their more than 30-year history with the property—improvements they’ve made, special occasions they enjoyed here, and what they’ve found to be special about the house and location.

    Set back from the road, down a long driveway, the main house affords 4,605 square feet of living space, with a formal living room, dining room, family room, kitchen and a home office on the first floor.

    The 20-by-13-foot eat-in kitchen at 22 Prindiville Avenue, is designed with hardwood floors, a center island, contemporary-style cabinets, stainless appliances, and exterior access to the backyard deck.

    “The floor plan is fabulous,” the owners remarked. “It is very conducive to hosting crowds, yet also has areas for more intimate gatherings.”

    There is some built-in flexibility to the floor plan, as well.

    “Simple changes can turn the office into a bedroom with a full bath,” the owners said. “The loft area over the garage can be utilized to expand the bedroom. … The attached in-law suite could become a business office space. The possibilities for space and décor are endless.”

    An attached garage accommodates three cars, with additional parking in the driveway

    The property has some significant outdoor living space, too, with a deck and pool patio, gardens and exterior landscape lighting.

    “The outdoor space is great fun for entertaining, too,” the sellers remarked.

    “When our parents considered downsizing their family home to become snowbirds, the perfect housing answer was to join our home with a smaller self-contained home for them to enjoy right next door. This multigenerational home offered us time together and precious grandparent-grandchildren time together,” the owners explained.

    An open-plan great room combines formal dining and casual family room seating.

    “The guest area on the first floor, which connects the two separate-but-together homes could be turned into a first-floor master,” the suggested.

    An aerial of the property shows how the home is nestled among woodlands, creating a private setting.

    “We’ve found that the private lot, with three wooded acres, is most attractive,” the homeowners told Welcome Home. “When the trees are in bloom, we love that the house is hidden from the street. When at home there is the relaxing, serene feeling of a private country location, yet there is nice proximity to the town center, local restaurants and retailers, the town beach, and boating opportunities in Long Island Sound.”

    Oversized windows welcome an abundance of natural light into the interior rooms.

    For buyers with school-aged children, this home places the family in the Great Neck elementary school district, which graduates students to Clark Lane Middle and on to Waterford High School.

    “Raising our family in this home has been a dream come true,” the owners reflected. “This home is a place where we’ve shared so much love and wonderful memories for over 30 years. We’ve hosted family and friends for all of life’s memorable events and have enjoyed it all—birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, work parties, pool parties, retirements and everything in between.”

    The primary suite is one of five bedrooms.
