Perched on the banks of Long Island Sound, this stately stone Georgian home is the very picture of quintessential waterfront living on America’s East Coast. The residence sits on 2.46 acres, looking out over the water, 340 feet of shoreline, a private beach, and an electric-powered deep-water dock protected by a 180-foot stone jetty.

The home is approached via a long, heated drive, which ends at a handsome motor court. A bright, airy foyer accented with timeless columns, paneling, and molding introduces the residence. Beyond is a living room with a striking coffered ceiling, a fireplace, and French doors to the loggia. Other highlights include a wood-paneled library; a formal dining room behind pocket French doors; and a light-flooded kitchen that features an oversized marble island and adjoins an inviting family room. The home also offers eight bedrooms, among them an owner’s suite with stunning water views. A magnificent 60-foot indoor pool is the highlight of the lower-level.
The expansive covered back porch, which gazes out over the water, leads to an outdoor pool surrounded by a stone terrace and lined with sycamore trees. Completing the appealing picture are a barbeque, an outdoor fireplace, and a sitting area beneath a pergola. Lush sweeping lawns with manicured landscaping encompass vegetable gardens, fruit orchards, beehives, and a chicken coop.
The location is irreplaceable—an elevated and protected spot in the coveted guard-gated Field Point Circle Association.
