About the Property

ENJOY THIS BEAUTIFULLY DECORATED PRIVATE ESTATE 2 MILES FROM SHORE!

This magnificent private estate offers many rooms for your family to enjoy, 17.5 acres of leafy green trees, privacy, yet close to beaches and shops and all area attractions. Lovely 5 bedroom, 3 & 1/2 bath gorgeous estate with private grounds, yet close to all & 2 miles to Mystic Seaport/beach. There is a 1/4 mile driveway leading to the home. There is plenty of room for parking. There are 17.5 lovely wooded acres and a backyard grill, surrounded by leafy trees & hydrangea flowering plants (in the spring/summer). The home has 6000 square feet of hardwood flooring covered with fine Oriental rugs, baseboards, crown molding & decorator touches throughout. Tastefully decorated with a mix of Antiques, this is a beautiful, formal home with French Doors & windows that allow lots of natural sunlight. Enter into a hall with the game room/parlor to the left & the formal dining room to the right. Both have french doors that can be closed for privacy/coziness as well as fireplaces. Further into the home is the enormous family room with another fireplace, leather furniture to relax into, books, & two sets of french doors leading out to the deck/backyard. There is another dining area (for breakfasts & lunches) between the kitchen and the living room with its own set of french doors leading out to the deck/. The Gourmet Kitchen has two sinks, two dishwashers, a Wolf Range with double ovens, six gas burners, a griddle & a grill. There is a huge granite kitchen island & separate granite counter-tops throughout the kitchen. There is one half-bath downstairs. Upstairs, there are five bedrooms & three bathrooms. The master bedroom & bath is like an upscale Presidential Suite at a resort and is a wonderful retreat! It has two sitting areas, a fireplace, an eating area with a small table for breakfast or reading in suite, and a California King Bed. The bathroom has his & hers separate showers, his & hers vanities/dressing areas, a wood elevator, a fireplace, a sitting area, a refrigerator, skylights & an over-sized tub for two! At the end of the upstairs hallway is a balcony that overlooks the grounds. The three upstairs secondary bedrooms are well appointed with brand new queen sized beds, sitting areas, lots of natural light & plenty of closet space. One of the bedrooms has its own private full bath and two of the bedrooms share a full bath. There is a fifth room is small with a skylight ~ suitable for one or two young children to sleep, with trundle style twin beds. The floorplan and flow of the home make living/staying here easy. The backyard is sheer heaven in the spring/summer/fall with a large entertaining deck, grill, surrounded by grass, trees, flowers (except for in the winter when there can be snow!). No neighbors are close, and there is privacy in the backyard as well. There is a live in overseer in the guest house on site, at the rear of the pool area, but this professional lady enjoys her privacy on site as well. Close to the water, beaches, entertainment, attractions such as world class Mystic Aquarium, Mystic Seaport, Stonington Vineyards, Olde Mystick Village, Foxwoods Casino, Stonington Borough, Mystic Village, Fine Dining, sailing, watersports, theatre and pretty much anything you can imagine as well as the I-95 freeway in minutes.
