Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: About the owners We stumbled upon Stonington in 2012 when looking for a country home near NYC that would offer year-round outdoor activities and a natural setting that would nourish the soul. As is true for many people, we had heard of Mystic, CT and Watch Hill, RI, but Stonington had slipped under our radar. Stonington has the quality of a hidden gem, situated between these popular tourist destinations. All it took was a stroll through Stonington Borough (SO charming!), a drive through the surrounding New England countryside, and a day at the beach to convince us that we had found our place. THEN we found our home, which is truly one of a kind, built as a labor of love by the former owner, who had a deep love of architecture and an immaculate eye for detail. We have loved every moment spent in the house since, and have yet to scratch the surface of area activities; there is so much to do! As much as we love being here, we often are not, due to work and other commitments. In turn, for the first time, we rented the house out on a very limited basis in the summer of 2015, and we have decided to make it available again in a similar way in 2016. If you choose to rent Wheeler Farm, we hope that you will enjoy the property and surrounding area as much as we do, and create wonderful memories here of your own. We are happy to answer any questions you may have. Please feel to contact us. Warmly, Laura and Buz
