Description

Welcome to a retreat of magnificence! Designed by renowned architect, Peter Woerner in 1992. This expansive property of 6.59 acres offers ultimate privacy and abundant natural beauty. The house sits on top of a spectacular promontory with 40-foot drop-offs to a quarry pond below. The quarry pond, "Big Brooklyn, supplied the stone for the base of the Brooklyn Bridge and now provides a tranquil reflecting pool for the house! As you enter the first level of the house, the light infused panoramic views of the Long Island Sound, tidal marshes and Jarvis Creek are astounding! The main level includes living-dining space with vaulted ceilings and clerestory windows, study/guest room, full kitchen, and full bathroom. Walkout to a curved deck. At dusk, enjoy a beautiful flock of egrets throughout summer and fall. Second level: primary bedroom with balcony, guest bedroom, and full bath. Third level, the "Tower" room, is an aerie with a 360o, top of the world, vista! Protected on all sides from further development - bounded by two parcels of Land Trust and three large residential properties. As a coastal property, this house is not vulnerable to flooding or anticipated sea-level rise. The house is located at a land elevation of approximately 40 feet. All of this beauty is a quarter mile to the center of the historic village of Stony Creek, harbor, Thimble Islands and beach. A distinctive sanctuary of splendor awaits you.
