The Town of East Haddam was recently named by the New York Times as one of the "52 Best places to Love" in 2021! This very pleasant 3 bed, 2.5 bath pristine Cape IS nestled along scenic Mt Parnassus Rd. The residence has been lovingly maintained by the original owner and sits on a level, wooded 2-acre lot close to the town's historic village and the beautiful Devil's Hopyard State forest. Greeted by a pretty front porch, the freshly painted main living spaces on the main level showcase an intimate living room with a wood burning fireplace, a separate, open kitchen with ample counter space and a full dining area with sliders off to a deck and the rear yard. There are gleaming hardwood floors on the main floor as well as an updated half bath and laundry room. On the upper level there is a huge master bedroom with a large, glamorous walk-in closet, a sitting area, a private office space and an en suite bath. Two additional bedrooms with great closets, a full hall bath with double sinks complete the upper level. The dry, unfinished basement is currently used as a rec room /computer gaming room. There is much space for additional storage on the lower level and in the 2 car-garage. It is an easy drive to several metro areas including New York, Boston, Hartford and Providence all with international airports and Amtrak. The area is conveniently located close to several renowned cultural centers, colleges, restaurants and entertainment venues. Not to be missed!
