Stonington, Conn. – October 18, 2016 – William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty announced today that the firm has listed a historic Georgian Colonial known locally as “Merry Meeting Farm.” The Stonington, Conn., residence is represented by Old Lyme agents Lucy Uchalova and Byron Lazine, and offered at $1,425,000.
“Merry Meeting Farm,” symbolically named after a large freshwater tidal bay in Maine, boasts a long history in the Stonington area. Built in 1747, the residence currently rests on over 12 acres of land, and features several outbuildings including a caretaker’s cottage, heated and insulated 1,200 square-foot barn, a three-box stable and a three-car garage and shed. Surrounded by stone walls, expansive lawns, meadows, and gardens including roses, grapes, berries and an orchard, the eight-bedroom, six and a half-bath home is restored to facilitate modern amenities while preserving period details. Five original fireplaces, beamed ceilings, built-ins and wide floor boards are a few of the standout features, in addition to a new heating/cooling system, heated saltwater pool, new cedar shake roof and a full house generator.
“Throughout the years, generations of prominent local families have lived here,” said Uchalova. “The charming home offers a social history of the families and friends who have lived and gathered here, making ‘Merry Meeting Farm’ the perfect name for this property.”
“With a history that dates back to the 18th century, this residence presents the ideal blend of old-world charm meets modern convenience,” said Lazine. “Its beautifully serene setting is also protected by an 82-acre parcel of farmland preserved by the Stonington Land Trust, adding further to its retreat-like appeal.”
