Hi Donna, excellent post. There couldn't possibly be anything missing about the life style and buyer opportunities in this East Haven community that you left out. Very deserving of a feature or better yet a couple of enthusiastic buyers.

Thank you all for your wonderful comments and for the feature post!  Momauguin is a lovely area and borders where I live in Morris Cove and it will really start to hum with activity as we get closer to summer.  We do a lot of take out from the Sandpiper and always look forward to the 4th of July fireworks every year.   

I'm loving the hyper-local Google juice for anyone who is looking for information about Momauguin.

I grew up in Morgan Point, East Haven, on Morgan Ave. I have such wonderful memories - always playing in the sand in summer, the snow in winter with my 3 older sisters. I've lived in more than one state since then.....but back in CT now. Just curious as to what the condos on Shell Beach are going for these days.

It's so wonderful to hear about the fond memories you have of the Momauguin area and nice to see that you're back in CT again. :-)

Condos in Shell Beach over the past year or so have been selling anywhere between $300,000-$400,000.
