The Gideon Kelsey House: Water Views and 5 Fireplaces!

80 Waterside Ln, Clinton, CT, 06413
  • $1,299,000


This home speaks to you! From the amazing water views from almost every room, to the incredible sunsets to proximity to restaurants, shops, beach, fishing, kayaking, marinas and galleries. This antique home is complete with 5 fireplaces including one with a now converted bee hive oven used so frequently the owners call it the “pizza room”. Updated throughout with all the charm and character remaining; a truly special place creating memories for all lucky enough to visit. 4 bedrooms, two full updated baths, one with a dreamy claw foot tub and a huge finished attic. Set on .80 acres with loads of room for possible expansion/addition/garage. From the historic marker at Clinton Town Beach (paraphrased) about the original owner Gideon Kelsey; is a perfect example to illustrate the bravery and boldness of some to defend Clinton from British forces. It was said that one day at his home, Kelsey saw a British ship nearing the harbor and instead of alerting the town, he took matters into his own hands. He grabbed his gun and brought his neighbors, Silas and William Wilcox, along, telling them, let us go down and get a shot at them; it is a British boat full of men. Kelsey fired on the ship from Hammock Point and eventually the ship retreated back into the Sound, away from the harbor. Don’t miss your chance to enjoy this summer and years to come at 80 Waterside Lane!
