Turn down the private lane and you feel as though you’re entering the English countryside. This lovely gracious estate like home is set on over six private acres with frontage and a dock on the Lieutenant River which provides access to Long Island Sound. Elegantly appointed, this was the original home of artist Will Howe Foote whose work is on permanent display at the Florence Griswold Museum. Architect Charles C. Grant an apprentice of Charles A. Platt designed this home built in 1920 which has been meticulously upgraded and maintained. The home has three bedrooms and three and one half baths; in addition, the property has a private separate one bedroom one bath carriage house, perfect for guests. The kitchen and all baths have recently been upgraded with the finest finishes. The kitchen was designed by John Linder, with honed granite counters, fabulous tin back splash, and a six burner Viking gas range. Wonderful entertaining spaces in the living room and dining room with 12’ high ceilings and warmly appointed with period wall coverings and window treatments. Circular drive, 3 car garage, a beautiful heated in-ground pool, a dock and plush landscape add to the gracious character of this waterfront home. The grounds absolutely must be seen to fully grasp this bucolic setting. You truly feel as though you’ve stepped back in time and yet this home is updated and convenient to all amenities.
