Located in beautiful Old Black Point, this elegant Georgian house built in 1928, sits on a hill allowing for stunning water views of Long Island Sound. Overlooking one and a half professionally landscaped acres, this property includes formal English gardens, a rolling front lawn, mature trees, stonewalls, several bluestone terraces and privet hedges. The 13 room home offers more than 4,000 square feet of gracious living space with a sunlit kitchen, formal living and dining rooms, six fireplaces, eight bedrooms, five full bathrooms and one half bathroom. The interiors are further enhanced with original wide plank floors, crown moldings, beautifully crafted built-in shelving, fluted Ionic columns and wall paneling. The hand painted murals on the dining room walls by Tom Rose depict the distant lands of Asia and India of long ago. The high ceilinged, light filled interior has a flexible floor plan, with both formal and casual spaces, perfect for large family gatherings yet delightful enough for a quiet escape in front of the fire. Old Black Point enjoys a "world apart" feeling. Close to Mystic, Stonington and Watch Hill. The home is convenient to town, restaurants, yoga studios, museums, farmer's markets, golf, sailing, fishing, marinas and all forms of major transportation. Photographs 30 through 35 and photos at the end of the virtual tour are amenities available for property owners only if application for membership in the Old Black Point Association is made and accepted.
