Tucked on a quiet cul de sac, a five-bedroom Colonial offers buyers a trifecta: waterfront property with a private dock and custom pool.

Situated on more than an acre of land at the edge of Goodwives River, this waterfront gem offers easy access to Long Island Sound without being in a flood zone.

Built in the mid-1960s and renovated in 2005, the home features an open floor plan designed to complement its views of the water, which can be seen in nearly every room.

Inside, a Craftsman-style staircase allows visitors an immediate glimpse of the water from the moment they step inside.

The first floor of the home features an open floor plan that's great for entertaining.

Wrapped in crisp white paneling, the formal dining room features a bay window overlooking the front of the property and four-piece crown molding that continues into the main living area.

A simply designed formal living room features a woodburning fireplace with a soapstone surround. The living room opens into a large shared space with the kitchen, which works nicely as an everyday breakfast area but could also lend itself as an added sitting room that overlooks the water.

A Calacatta marble center island takes center stage in the expansive kitchen with three pendant-style light fixtures overhead and an added hand-washing sink.

The custom-designed kitchen also features ample storage with mission-style cherry cabinetry. A built-in banquet offers comfortable everyday seating with more storage.

The kitchen features timeless soapstone counters with Calacatta marble subway tiles as a backsplash and state-of-the-art appliances, including a Wolf range and Sub-Zero refrigerator.

Just off the kitchen is a family room with three-quarter paneling and a coffered ceiling that opens into an office area through pocket doors.

The second floor of the home includes four generously sized guest bedrooms sharing two full baths in addition to a master suite and a laundry room.

The dramatic master suite features cathedral ceilings with exposed white-painted beams. Perhaps the best feature of the master is the French doors that lead to a private balcony perfect for enjoying the coastal breeze and taking in panoramic views of the water.

The master en suite features a dual marble vanity, sunken tub and frameless glass step-in shower.

A fully finished lower level hosts an additional 864 square feet of living space with room for entertaining in warmer months and walkout access to a custom stone pool and spa.

The lower level is divided into two large spaces, one that could easily lend itself as an additional bedroom with its own corner fireplace, and another that could function as a second family area with a wet bar.

Another laundry room and full bath allow for convenient pool changes and a second mudroom area featuring durable slate floors includes a dumbwaiter for groceries and separate access to the attached three-car garage.

French doors open from the lower level to a large terrace overlooking the perennial gardens, sweeping lawn and, of course, the river.

The property, just a stroll away from the beach, has its own dock, perfect for water enthusiasts to tie up paddleboards, kayaks and boats.

"This home is truly unique," said Casey Lange, a Realtor with Halstead Property. "Having a waterfront property with a dock and a pool, and a home that is not in the flood zone is like hitting the trifecta."
