Driving Directions

Built by Eli Whitney in 1816 as a Lake House, this prestigious location has been home to Wilbur Cross, Jr., past Presidents of Duke and Trinity College as well as a Dean of Yale University; and remains an integral part of Hamden Connecticut's architectural heritage. Across the street from both Lake Whitney and the New Haven Golf Club, the home sits in a park-like setting, situated in an idyllic neighborhood, five minutes from Yale, with all of the conveniences of modernized living combined with old world charm. The large, sundrenched kitchen is adorned with Viking appliances, granite countertops and opens to a family room that opens through French doors to a large front yard. On the opposite side of the kitchen one finds a screened in porch from which to enjoy morning coffee or evening cocktails surrounded by the home's serene gardens. A quiet atmosphere just minutes from the many amenities of downtown New Haven. Attached is a link for a tour of this prestigious property.
