Video attached! A mere two and one half miles from Yale University and former home to one of Yale’s Law School Dean’s sits one of the most prestigious properties offered in Hamden in over two decades. Quaint Marshall Road gracefully meanders up to this spectacular 3.2 acre estate; referred to by some as one half soccer field and one half exotic arboretum. Once within the estates private, yet welcoming, environment one forgets just how close you are to New Haven’s plethora of fine restaurants and diverse entertainment; or how convenient it is to travel to New York or Boston. Walk to East Rock Park, Lake Whitney, or the New Haven Country Club. Or, simply enjoy your surroundings pretending you are comfortably nestled within a Vermont-like environment. Harken back to the days when neighborhood friends got together on the front yard to enjoy a game of soccer or touch football. Or, remember when creative gardening set you atop the neighborhood pecking order. Speaking of gardening, beginning in 1950, the home was occupied by a family who enjoyed gardening and planting exotic specimen trees. The former President of the Garden Club of New Haven made certain that something colorful greeted its beloved caretakers each month while her husband carefully selected and located specimen trees.
