My Dream New England Beach House Town Aubrey Yandow The Coastal Confidence
I mean, I feel like this post would be a fun way to open up a very important conversation. This conversation topic is something I’ve methodically thought about over and over again until I knew my decision was certain. So here it goes, let’s discuss where you’d buy a New England beach house if the budget wasn’t an issue. Good question, right?
Okay, before we go down the rabbit hole and dig any deeper into this topic we need to discuss this gorgeous flutter sleeve shirt, I’m wearing. This blouse has to be one of the most complimented pieces I’ve worn all season. Every time I step out in it I have numerous people stopping me, to ask where it’s from. I think a lot of that attention has to do with the flutter sleeve detail and structured front. It’s classic and yet still flirty and youthful, making it the perfect summer top, to transition from day to night. And I mean you’re going to need this blouse once you settle into your ideal beach house town, am I wrong?

Let’s get back to this topic because there is a lot to debrief. New England is filled with so many good towns, So many places with unique charms and so many gorgeous beach town communities to choose from, how do you pick! Now I guess I should prefix this topic by saying I defidently haven’t explored all the unique beach towns New England has to offer but no matter where I go, I end up coming back to the same town over and over. Fenwick! 
It’s actually home to Katherine Hepburn’s Lifelong Estate and the backdrop to many, many many of my most liked Instagram photos. It’s a slightly isolated town ajar to Old Saybrook, Which is another reason why I love it so much. While I love the hustle and bustle of beach towns, Fenwick is ideal for introverts like me, because this quaint private beach town is able to avoid all the hoopla and nasty beach traffic, that other bigger beach towns like Mystic suffer from. Fenwick effortlessly flies under the radar as the community is wicked small and only certain streets are driveable to the public. It’s basically the perfect hidden gem. 
In fact, the way I usually explore Fenwick is through a round of golf! While there is no public beach on Fenwick, they do have a public golf course intertwined into their beautiful town. I mean some of the tee’s are even located on prime ocean real estate, giving golfers better views than some of the local beach houses. I could go on and on, but to wrap it up if I could buy a beach house anywhere it would be here and it would be perfect. No long ferry commute, no crazy drivers, just simply a little quite Connecticut town that embodies the essence of picturesque. Oh, and the photos would be amazing, obviously.

Now it’s your turn. Where would you purchase a beach house if budget was no issue? Would you go for one of the big New England Island’s like Nantucket or something in the north like Bar Harbor or Kennebunkport? Let me know below where you would buy a home and why that specific town because there are still so many I need to visit. Can’t wait to read your responses.

    This is a very hard question to answer. Like you said, there are a lot of great places. I think for CT, I would go to Old Saybrook and for RI, I would choose Newport. For me, you get great shopping & restaurants and some nice beaches, but you also get that quaint off the beaten path feeling to…a little country, a little beachy. All in all, the great community feeling without being overwhelmed.
