Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

Why the Owner Chose Stonington:
Wondering why we refer to the property as The Turtle House? Its a bit of an inside joke. When I purchased the property in January 2013, I knew I was planning to gut and renovate the entire home. I envisioned a six month turn around, boy was I wrong as it was not completed until May, 2014. Hence, I jokingly began referring to it as the Turtle House because the project just continued and continued. Fast forward and we couldn't be happier with the outcome of this gorgeous property...it was well worth the wait.
