Charming Connecticut Island for Sale

Built in 1912, this charming 3,871 sq. ft.  Nantucket style cottage on Potato island off the coast of Guilford is for sale. The spectacular 4 bedroom 3.5 Bath residence is located on its own private island. Renovated to perfection the house boasts a wrap around porch, with 360 degrees of breathtaking views, park like grounds with heated pool and a deep water dock. Located just 85 miles outside of New York City, this spectacular vacation residence is the perfect antidote to civilization. Manhattan is just an hour and 40 minutes,  and Boston in 2 hours 30 minutes by car.  The local airport is just 15 minutes away.

This enchanted private island oasis designed to maximize the most sought after views of coastal New England while respecting the traditions and spirit of this archipelago just off the mainland of the famed village of Stony Creek in Branford CT.

Described as palatial when originally built in 1912, this now captivating home was completely renovated to preserve the original character while providing every modern convenience. The experience begins in the quaint village of Stony Creek. Potato Island is one of 23 inhabitable islands that many say resemble the coast of Maine. 

The majestic home sits on just over an acre of property that contains perfect park-like-lawns and a spectacular heated pool. The pool was designed to offer a level of privacy while maximizing the surrounding water and island views.

Inside the home, the attention to detail is immediately noted with a large fieldstone fireplace to the right that anchors the large living chic yet casual dining. The home's original character has been preserved with hardwood floors and bead board which perfectly complement the more modern design elements. From the dining room one can bask in the late afternoon sun and then enjoy the most magnificent of sunsets. The kitchen boasts state of the art appliances and a breakfast bar.

The bedrooms and bathrooms are upstairs on the second level, with an impressive master suite with vaulted ceilings and breathtaking views. The other bedrooms are equally as enchanting.

So, if you have a cool $7.5 mil (or $29K per month) kicking around, you should take a look at the listing here.
