Noank is located as a subdivision of Groton along the west side of the Mystic River, north of Long Island Sound. It is divided into two general areas known as Noank and Noank Village. The Village is a historic area with narrow open homes, shipyards, waterfront properties, and water views of Long Island and Fishers Island. Not as well known as Mystic, it has a similar feel of a small historic whaling and ship-building town. The greater part of Noank has larger parcels of land and more modern and contemporary homes.
Noank real estate agents have a wide variety of options for prospective buyers. Noank’s waterfront property is very limited in sandy beaches but it is great for docks and boating. There is a public town dock that residents can use to swim in the river. Esker Beach has volleyball and free beach concerts. Large lots and new developments are still available along with historic homes that have been or need remodeling. Most of the waterfront property has already been developed, so building new homes would be limited. Rentals are sometimes available but there are very few condominiums in Noank and zoning can be very strict.
