About Karen Calvanese

We purchased this 'cottage' and turned it into a home where our children enjoyed many, many years of summers in Westbrook. Wonderful memories are carried with me at all times. We would live our summers here in Westbrook and then head back home for the school year. Now, being empty nesters, we would love to see our Westbrook home enjoyed by others who long to be near the ocean.

Karen Calvanese purchased this house in 1989

Why Karen Calvanese chose Westbrook Center

It's directly on the beach in a quiet family friendly neighborhood. It's easily accessible from I-95 and Rt 9 and offers many attractions nearby.

What makes this house unique

After searching for several years, we knew we had finally found the right summer home. The house at the time needed a lot of work, but the road was quiet which was a major concern for us having young children and the beach wasn't rocky which was a big concern as well. We knew we could always turn the house into a home we could love, but the road and the beach were unchangeable. We hated to leave come the school year. Now that our children are grown we have used this Westbrook home in the off season as well. It is beautiful in the winter and even quieter.

What a wonderful place in so many ways. It’s oceanfront views do not get old, and the space inside easily fit six overnight guests, multiple people in the kitchen and dinner guests. The two large bathrooms were clean and luxurious. We all had a great time.

Everyone is right - the pictures don’t do this place justice! Such a warm and inviting house with all the comfortable amenities. Beautiful views from every room and comfortable fit the 5 adults and 2 children in our group. Thanks Karen for opening your home to us!

The photos did not do this house justice! Gorgeous home, gorgeous view.

  • 4 of 5

The first floor was perfect for a large, celebratory gathering - very open floor plan and fun, full-sized bar. The bedrooms upstairs were spacious and the back deck and patio were both great for watching the gorgeous view of Long Island Sound.

Created some great memories ......

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Karen for opening up your beautiful home to our familiy, we had a fantastic time.

Your home is very spacious with breathtaking views. I don't think the pictures provided really shows how beautiful your place is. It was clean and offered everything a group of seven adults needed......towels, blankets, pillows, full kitchen, etc., and we never felt cramped for space. Having one bedroom on the main floor and three bedrooms upstairs was also a very nice feature for the light sleeper in our group. Weather was not as nice as we had hoped but we took advantage of the many games you had available while enjoying the beautiful view. The beach was clean and the neighbors friendly !! Your location is many things to do and see. It was nice to take the train from New Haven into New York, go to Yale ...too many things to list.

Thank you again, the Farr Familiy!
