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 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.

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.
