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.
