    Description

    >>> Take a 3D Tour OR Enjoy a Video Walkthrough <<< RARE OPPORTUNITY - Have you been looking for an Old Lyme beach home that has larger than a postage stamp lot with limited parking? Here it is! This 2-Story 4BR, 1.5 Bath home is on a large triple-sized lot that's NOT in the nearby flood zone PLUS it has a "Honeymoon Cottage" structure that has so much potential with Sound View beach access. The current R-10 zoning rules won't allow you to build a home this tall anymore! If you want more when sewers are installed, you may be able to preserve the non-conformity in terms of the height/coverage and build a single larger structure (with a full basement after sewers are installed) OR you can just renovate what currently exists. There is no basement as both structures are on piers with crawlspaces. The lawn area to the right of the "Honeymoon Cottage" is where the septic leaching system is located and that provides plenty of parking. Since this home has not been used by the Sellers in 10 years, the sale is "As-Is" and the power is off. The roof has architectural shingles. The condition of the plumbing is unknown. The electric heat worked fine 10 years ago. The property is referenced as 5 Swan Avenue on the Old Lyme land records (no longer 5-7 Swan Ave). Sound View Beach, America's First Public Beach, established 1892 - is a 100-foot section of public beach. Golf Carts must be registered with the Sound View Commission, Town of Old Lyme and are subject to special use regulations.
