Situated in the rural town of Killingworth, the acreage offers country living with the convenience of amenities in the towns of Madison, Guilford, and Essex and beaches of Long Island Sound, all about 15 minutes away.

A small stream runs through the entire western portion of the property that is bordered by Killingworth Land Conservation Trust and includes 390 feet of Hammonasset River frontage overlooking land slated for conservation.
