Property description

Enjoy magnificent water views from this historic townhouse in the heart of Stonington Village. Erected circa 1840, the three-story building has been renovated to fit modern standards yet retains its original, gracious character. The highlight of the house are it's views with a dining deck overlooking the bay's many sailboats and Connecticut's last remaining commercial fishing fleet. Completing the package is a charming side yard and another deck off the master bedroom. The owner’s took optimal advantage of the beautiful ocean views and choose an upside-down floor plan (living room, kitchen, and dining room are on the third floor). Every day the living room comes to a standstill when the sun, settling upon the water, fills it with magnificent colors. French doors lead to a fully outfitted deck where dining atop the ocean never fails to please.


This is a detached, three story 'townhouse' with a side yard. It is nestled between other smaller houses, on all but one side, and therefore has wonderful unobstructed views to the ocean. There are two flights of stairs, ten steps each. Keep in mind that they are 1800's 'style' i.e. the rise is a 1/4' steeper. Our experience is that the comfort level has more to do with stamina and physical condition than age. We have an 80 year old couple who love this house, but even a fifteen year old doesn't always like stairs.

On the first floor are two bedrooms that share a full bath. One of the bedrooms has french doors leading to the garden, and serves as a second family room when a 4th bedroom is not needed.

Car: Recommended

This is a true 'Borough' location. The Townhouse is within walking distance to 6 popular restaurants, as well as the beach, the lighthouse, and Stonington's wonderful shops (not just antiques anymore). In fact, our favorite restaurant (less than 2 blocks away) is one of the most popular in the county. With people traveling 45 minutes to dine there, our only complaint is the long wait for a table. If you haven't visited the Borough you're in for a treat. Nestled on a small peninsula, the village had a thriving fishing industry in the 1800's; hence it boasts many grand old homes. Now, an avid sailing community, and Connecticut’s last surviving fishing village, it has the perfect balance of both year rounders and summer vacationers. Everything one needs is within walking distance; fabulous restaurants, antique stores, and clothing boutiques. The new playground can be viewed from our deck!
