Victorian-Era Estate in Stonington, Conn.

Spanning nearly half a mile of pristine New England shoreline, this extraordinary Victorian-era compound includes an elegant manor house, two guest houses and beautiful English gardens.

Water Frontage

The idyllic waterfront property encompasses 2,500 feet of water frontage, 600 feet of curving sandy beach and a 450-foot breakwater pier with a dock and two moorings.

Secluded Location

Spectacularly situated on a private peninsula overlooking Fisher Island Sound, Salt Acres sits high above the rocky shoreline on more than 11 acres of manicured grounds.

Driveway

The waterfront property is surrounded by 17 pristine acres of conservation land. Connected by a quarter-mile causeway, the estate is a stone's throw away from Stonington, widely regarded as one of New England’s loveliest villages.

Front Lawn

Sweeping lawns and shade trees grace the picturesque property. For nearly two decades a master gardener cultivated over five acres of English gardens on the property.

Spiral Staircase

The spacious 11-room residence offers superb architectural appointments including detailed moldings, high ceilings, oak floors and a stately spiral staircase.

Artists' Studio

Built in the mid-19th century, the two and one-half story residence has been restored three times — most recently in 1992. The upper level features an air-conditioned artists’ studio with oak floors and quasi-timber framing.

Saltwater Pool

From the upper terrace with a goldfish pond to the lower secret walled garden and saltwater pool, the grounds are an endless source of delight and discovery.

Tennis Court

Outbuildings include two three-car garages, a heated green house and a workshop. A tennis court completes the outdoor amenities.

Waterfront Views

The estate has some of the finest waterfront views in southeastern New England. Breathtaking vistas stretch in all directions, taking in Watch Hill, eastern Long Island, Fishers Island and Stonington Village.
