A walled stone causeway leads to this amazing property with 360° of waterfront, a main house, a guest house, a boathouse/party house, protected docking for five or more boats, and a private beach – it is the ultimate private oasis, with a feeling of being in Maine, yet close to everything

Entering the causeway, one has the exciting feeling of going out to sea. The views are extraordinary, straight across Long Island Sound with boats at anchor on the Belle Haven Shore and for islands including the delightful Calf’s Island Sanctuary. This extraordinary paradise is unlike any other on this coast – there is deep water on all sides with marvelous swimming from the seaward piers. The driveway leads to a courtyard and the stone path to the front door is through open lawns and beautiful gardens. A portico shelters the front door opening into the generous center hall with a beautiful curved stairway, a high ceiling and a powder room. The generous living room with a fireplace has spectacular views across the Sound as does the panelled family room with wide board floors and the wet bar and a panelled solarium with three exposures. The formal dining room is large, with a bow window to water views and the eat in kitchen has lovely water views as well, adjoining the mudroom and the laundry, also with views. The panelled office overlooks the garden, as does the generous guest suite with water views and a luxurious bathroom. Upstairs is a lovely master suite with a fireplace, a large solarium with three exposures, and a bathroom with a Whirlpool bathtub and a glass walled shower. There are six additional bedrooms with three bathrooms – currently one bedroom is used as a large upstairs office and another as a panelled exercise room. The guest house, built in 1985 is on a separately deeded lot has a center hall which opens to a Great Room surrounded by huge decks with great views, a fireplace, a large dining area, a lovely kitchen, and a master suite with a bedroom, bathroom and ample closets. Upstairs are two more large bedrooms with a connecting bathroom and an office area, an upstairs balcony and a hot tub on the terrace. Garaging accommodates four to five cars, plus large storage areas. The boat house/party house has great appeal with a beamed, vaulted ceiling and a wet bar – it is a great spot for relaxed entertaining with an electric awning over one deck and an awning over a second deck for relaxing in warm weather. Surrounded by the boat docks, which will accommodate a number of boats, kayaks or canoes in a covered boathouse, this is the center of boating activity in a totally protected area.
