I grew up on this property on the shoreline of Connecticut and have so many Kodachrome memories of a childhood filled with sand, woodland hiking, and long winded bike rides in this neighborhood.
I have been anointed by God to have such a blessing and I will steward his gift graciously!
My husband Victor and I moved back to our family land here in 1999 and look forward to sharing this peaceful space and our knowledge of Old Saybrook with others.
We love traveling, cooking, socializing, reading, music, boating, the beach, the woods. I am President and Principal of Harvest Development Group, a business consulting firm and Victor is Manager with Laz Parking. We have three grown children residing in Ct, Brookyn and Los Angeles.
