This unusual house for sale is not technically called a Sailboat House, but at first glance that is exactly what it looks like. Triangular in shape, set along the coastline in Guilford, CT it is quite the sight to see and is for sale.
The sailboat house is a bit of a tiny house with one bedroom and one and a half bath. Featured in the New Haven Register, “Once you’re here, you’re nowhere. It’s a magical place,” said Rosalyn Cama, an interior designer familiar with the noteworthy work of the home’s renowned local architect, Vincent Amore. He built this unusual beach house in 1971 on a quarter of an acre waterfront property at the intersection of Madison’s Circle Beach and Guilford’s Grass Island.
Who built this Sailboat House?
“In 1971, a young, later to become iconic modernist architect in the New Haven community, Vincent Amore, AIA, designed and built a coastal retreat for he and his family immersed in salt air, marsh fragrances, and sun-soaked views of the ever-changing, delightful southernmost Sound in New England” – per the listing details.
This is the most amazing and unusual view from the kitchen that looks like we are on a boat in the water. I love that about this house.
The bedroom has the highest ceilings I think I have ever seen or is this a ship or a bedroom in a sailboat? It is an architectural wonder.
The Sailboat House is not isolated along the coast at all. Look at all the traditional homes surrounding it. It is definitely the unusual house in the crowd and in this case that is not a bad thing at all. Furthermore, the listing details say “known by area sailors it is akin to being aboard a moored fully outfitted yacht.”
