About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 1/2 Bathroom, comfortably sleeps 9

Contemporary and stylish house set in a fantastic location.

You can use it as a base to explore the Connecticut coast or just hang out on the sunny decks or the huge garden.

The house is comprised of:

- Master Bedroom

A large room at the top of the house with a king sized bed and small closet. The upstairs bathroom is just across the landing.

Dark drapes keep out the morning sun so you can sleep as long as you like!

- Second bedroom

A quiet room with lots of closet space. This room is on the shady side of the house so it is lovely and cool.

- Third (downstairs) bedroom

Another king sized bed and two built-in singles make this an ideal kids' room. The second full bathroom leads off this bedroom.

- Kitchen, Dining and Living room

Amazing bright open plan spaces that open onto the sunny deck. The living room has a small library of interesting books about the local area, an iPod docking station and funky and comfortable furniture. The kitchen is functional and great for entertaining.

- The Decks

Lovely spaces for entertaining, dining al fresco at the rustic tables or just sunbathing. There is a chiminea and a small barbecue.

About shara alexander

This land has been in our family for 100 years. Our extended family still gathers in Stonington once a year from all over the country and abroad for a large family gathering (including an epic water fight and lobster feed).

shara alexander purchased this chateau / country house in 1989

Why shara alexander chose Connecticut

Stonington is a very special place. It's unspoiled and full of fun things to do. Great if you're into boats and the water; you can also take great walks, or visit the casinos! Locally there's a bit of a foodie thing happening -- with a handful of farm-to-table restaurants and farm stands everywhere. We love the indoor-outdoor style of living, being able to go barefoot and never locking the car!

What makes this chateau / country house unique

It's the views, the light, the air, the nature right in front of you, the friendly people. And, if we don't mind saying it, the house is has great style.

not for older people or people with handicaps.

It was a challenge for us who are older.The stairs , we had no problem with. The outdoor deck was a a real joke, no comfortable furniture, flimsy chairs and wood deck. The real problem is the bath/shower in both bathrooms, the bathtubs are so high it was almost impossible for some of us to get in and out. The place is a book repository old and dusty and sometimes very smelly, not somewhere I need to spend a month with. The bedrooms are something you need to figure out before you go there unless you don't mind people walking through your bedroom to go to the bathroom' The kayaks are a nice touch but not an easy to take to the water and almost impossible to bring back.

We enjoyed Stonington but not our V RBO so much.

Owner's Response: It is true that our house has s lot of stairs and deep bath tubs. I think the wood deck is quite nice, but our guest is certainly entitled to a different opinion. All in all, I appreciate the issues being raised so that no future tenants are surprised.

Just what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

Attending a family reunion in neighboring Lord' Point with wife and 3 adult children with spouses. House was perfect-plenty of room/great view of Stonington harbor, large deck to relax on and enjoy the surroundings, great area for walks and bike rides. Owner was helpful/very responsive as was the local caretaker.

Great location, fabulous view and a charming house!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a terrific Girls' Weekend at this house at the end of May. The house is quite charming with interesting décor and an amazing collection of books. We slept six adult women very comfortably, each with her own bed. The owners were very helpful and provided everything we needed for our weekend stay. They made it all quite effortless for us! The house was clean and the beds were very comfortable. We absolutely loved the location - very private with amazing views. We enjoyed sitting on the deck in the morning sipping our coffee and looking out at the harbor. While the house is in a very private area, it is centrally located between Mystic and Stonington, each just a short, easy drive away! We highly recommend this home and hope to be back again ourselves sometime soon.

Lovely home, very private

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for three nights in May and loved being there. It's convenient to everything in the area but also in a very private spot with a beautiful view of the water. It has a clever layout so a fairly large group can be there comfortably and a great deck where the view can be enjoyed both in the sunshine and under the stars. We look forward to being there again!
