Welcome to "The Ledges", an in-town, yet private estate like no other on the CT Shoreline, south of the Post Road.

The house is an architectural gem w/ high ceilings, hand-carved period moldings, bay windows, French doors, balconies, a large porch and a beautiful bluestone terrace. As you enter the front door, the "piece de resistance" is a two-story spiral staircase. Large scale rooms w/ plaster walls exude old world charm throughout....
