Designed by noted architects Austin Patterson Disston in 2005, this spectacularly sited shingle style home takes maximum advantage of the spectacular water views across a tranquil cove to Huckleberry Island and Long Island Sound. This custom built home has been designed to provide a sanctuary for its residents, with stunning water views from every room in the house.
An open, double height living room and dining room open to a wall of windows framing the spectacular view. The luxurious cherry kitchen has a breakfast room that will make one linger over coffee while watching the egrets and herons gracefully fish in the cove. Also on the main floor, a master suite with private terrace and exposure on three sides overlooks the water and a charming orchard. Two en suite guest bedrooms complete this floor.
The upper floor has two additional bedrooms as well as the last word in a home office, with commanding water views and a private balcony. The lower level has garaging for 5 cars, as well as wonderful storage space.
While this beautiful home induces a feeling of relaxation the moment one crosses the threshold, every mechanical element has been implemented with equal thought and sophistication. The solar roof panels are extremely energy efficient, and all of the electrical, heating and air conditioning elements are located on the upper floors of the house.
The intricately designed terraces have a nautical flair befitting their seaside setting. The lovely plantings add a beautiful splash of color running the length of the 310 foot long stone seawall. Paddle a canoe or kayak over to uninhabited Huckleberry Island, of which you are an owner, or just relax on the terrace and watch the sun sparkle on the water as the hours pass.
