Description

This charming home is perfectly situated between the Stony Creek harbor and the Washburn-Weil trail head, which connects to a beautiful system of hiking trails leading to Pine Orchard and Guilford. Perched above the summertime buzz of Thimble Island Road, this 1890 wooden-frame house is one of the oldest buildings on Buena Vista Road. The home offers picture-frame water views of Long Island Sound and the beautiful tidal marsh running nearby. The house receives plentiful morning and afternoon sunlight and the property offers numerous expansion possibilities. The generous third floor, ready for a make-over, provides sweeping views of the Sound. The rear portion of the property abuts Three Elms Road, providing easy rear lot access to the property and presenting opportunities for potential home expansion or addition of an artist’s studio and boat shed. Stony Creek, specifically Buena Vista Road, has a history of attracting creative talent such as painter Susan Weil and sculptor/painter Aaron Kurzen. There is ample talent and sociability among the community here that treasures morning walks by the harbor, soaking in views of the Thimble Islands, and meet-ups at locally-owned shops. A rich local history exists and there are plenty of attractions within walking distance, including: Willoughby Wallace Library, The Stony Creek Museum, The Legacy Theater, The Stony Creek Boating Association, The Congregational Church, as well as the Stony Creek Market and the Stony Creek Package Store. Offered for the first time on the market in 64 years, this much-loved home is now ready for new owners.
