East Lyme Real Estate Market Report October 2017 from Bridget Morrissey



The East Lyme Real Estate Market Report is a monthly statement of East Lyme Median List Price, the East Lyme Zillow Home Value Index, the East Lyme Median Sales Price, and the East Lyme Zillow Rent Index.

Located just 20 minutes south of famed Mystic, Connecticut, and just two hours from New York city or Boston, MA., sits the quaint village of Niantic Connecticut

Niantic is a warm, friendly and inviting seaside village easily accessible by car, foot, boat or train. It is a wonderful place to visit, play, and live. It's a place where residents and visitors alike gather for specialty shopping, a wide-array of gourmet and eclectic dining choices, creative entertainment and arts, and water related activities within a village that has maintained its historic past.

Niantic is the only community on the Connecticut coast where the "Main Street" runs parallel to the beautiful Long Island Sound. Downtown Niantic is the traditional center of East Lyme, with a Town Hall, a non-chain specialty supermarket, a famed movie theater, various restaurants and pubs, a one-of-a-kind book store, several antique and boutique shops, and a town beach all within walking distance.

While it's a great place to spend the day, there are also a couple of great bed and breakfasts and inns to suit the out-of-town visitors. Niantic has become a tourist destination in its own right, with Niantic Bay and Long Island Sound to the south, and the Niantic River to the east.

Waterford Neighborhoods - Oswegatchie







The Oswegatchie Historic District is located on a sandy promontory of land located along the western border of Waterford between the mouth of the Niantic River and Keeney Cove. The layout of the streets in the Oswegatchie Historic District, which mostly border the water and the vast swathes of open space located at its center together form a U-shaped district.

The majority of the significant properties in this former resort area are predictably located along the water's edge. The main route that leads to Oswegatchie is Route 1A (The Boston Post Road), which connects to Oswegatchie Road, the principle north-south, and east-west thoroughfare in the district. The terrain of the area is characterized by level ground with a gentle rise located at the center of the U-shaped district.

The western side of the Oswegatchie Historic District begins at the intersection of Riverside Drive and East Street. The district then follows the shore line south and includes properties along Riverside, Plant and Park Drives as it then turns east to cross the point. It then continues north along Shawandassee Road and west along Oswegatchie Road to just before the crossing of Stony Brook as it feeds into Keeney Cove.

Throughout the Oswegatchie Historic District, the streets retain the same layout seen in maps of Oswegatchie dating from 1899.

The properties include 51 parcels containing 106 buildings and structures, of which 71 (67 percent) contribute to the district's architectural significance. Of the 51 parcels, 50 are residential and one is a church. The non-contributing resources include residential structures that have been significantly altered, were built after 1950 or are modern auxiliary structures such as garages and sheds.

CNN selects Mystic as a BEST seaside escape.CNN just selected Mystic, Connecticut as one of five “Summer hideaways: Best U.S. Seaside escapes.” Very cool and we agree of course.
“Drowsy port towns aren’t trying to make it big. They’re content to sit quietly idle without the throngs of trend-seekers in search of a place to deem the next hotspot. That’s why we like them. Seaside towns are a mainstay of the summer months….

Visit the article to see what CNN had to say about our little town and region. We’re right in there with Nantucket, Massachusetts; Ogunquit, Maine; Watch Hill, RI (our beautiful neighbor); and Pacific Grove, California

Mystic neighborhoods include Pequotsepos, Old Mystic, Greenmanville, Downtown Mystic and Masons Island.

The New Londo Real Estate Market Report is a monthly statement of the median sales price for homes, the number of sales, the average price per square foot for homes, the number of homes for sale, and the average listing price of New London homes for sale.

New London is a seaport city and a port of entry on the northeast coast of the United States. It is located at the mouth of theThames River in New London County, southeastern Connecticut.

For several decades beginning in the early 19th century, New London was the world's third busiest whaling port after New Bedford, Massachusetts, and Nantucket. The wealth that whaling brought into New London furnished the capital to fund much of the city's present architecture.

The city is home to Connecticut College, Mitchell College, the United States Coast Guard Academy, and The Williams School. The Coast Guard Station New London and New London Harbor is home port to the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Chinook and the Coast Guard's tall ship Eagle.
