Yesterday Jen and I finally succeeded in moving on what has been a fairly long drawn our process of bidding on a new home. After weeks of looking we found a home in Clinton, CT. We were trying to find a place in Guilford, but the prices were too high for the quality of house.
We pushed further east and ended up two towns away in Clinton. Clinton is a tiny shoreline community: Just 19sq miles with ~13,500 people. The town has an abundance of inland wetlands (17% of the town is water), and our future home is one that includes wetlands.
About 40% of our property will be pond. This comes with advantages and disadvantages. Privacy and wildlife are assured, but so too are mosquitoes and fewer land based wooded adventures. Still, excitement abounds.
At the moment we are expecting a closing the week of April 1st. More pictures to follow!
