A Connecticut beachfront cottage sitting along the Long Island Sound had to cross the sea itself to get there, according to its owners. That cottage, along with another house nearby, have been listed together for $3.75 million.
The cottage sitting on the beach at 117 Beach Ave. in Madison started as a mess hall at a Rhode Island Navy base, according to its owners, Nancy Bastian and Jeanne Weaver Mueller. The sisters said the cottage came with a board with meal options, hours it was open, along with a message telling the military personnel not to be too late or early for meals. The cottage has one bathroom, one bedroom, a kitchen and an outdoor shower. Rugosa roses line a side of the cottage, surrounding it with an enjoyable fragrance, according to the sisters.
