The original home accompanying the grist mill and tidal pond, this Captain's house was built in 1795, and was the colonial homestead of John Cable and William Sherwood, early settlers in the Compo Beach area. Sherwood Mill Pond and Long Island Sound are within 100 steps of your front door. The natural beauty of Old Mill Beach and Compo Beach await your enjoyment.

The Cable-Sherwood home is an elegant example of old world charm blended with modern sensibility offering a sense of character and warmth not found in today's construction. The twelve rooms of this post and beam structure offer three levels of flexible living space, five fireplaces, beehive oven, large symmetric layout, high ceilings and excellent flow thru-out the home.

Completely renovated in 1990, including steel beams installed in the basement for enhanced structural integrity, the home has been exceptionally well-maintained by the current owners since purchase in 1990 with a major addition in 2009 and several periods of updates and renovations thru 2015. The 1200 sq foot addition added in 2009 included a new master bedroom, master bath with steam shower, large family room and attached two car garage with electric vehicle charger.

The property sits high across from Old Mill Beach yet just steps to the sand. A wonderfully private fenced yard with a spacious granite patio off the kitchen and perennial gardens with hedging makes summer entertaining a pleasure after a relaxing day at the beach. There is space for everyone to enjoy in this remarkably well-maintained and modernized 5000 sq.ft. home. Twelve rooms in total. The home has a full, dry basement for storage of bikes, kayaks and fishing gear etc. The home is FEMA compliant since 1795!

An adjacent parcel is also available for purchase. The parcel can either be kept with this property for further expansion including a large pool or the parcel can be purchased to use as a separate, approved building lot. This home is a unique historic beach property set in a chic, cosmopolitan town within one hour commute by train line to NYC. Excellent school system, convenient location, outdoor living year round, great home for entertaining.
