Grand Island Living in Guilford, Connecticut
March 31, 2016
Text by Maria La Piana
This island estate is both elegant and fortress-like. All fourteen grand rooms are luxuriously appointed, and the Georgian manor house itself was built to withstand 115-mile-per-hour winds. The latter is a rather important feature when your property is on a lot among the Thimble Islands, off the Connecticut shoreline. Some would say this 4.24 parcel isn’t an island in the purest sense because it’s accessible by car (there’s a causeway connecting it to the mainland). But on account of its arresting views of Long Island Sound from every room, we’ll allow it. The 7,400-square-foot open plan features five bedrooms, seven full and one half-baths, a spacious window-walled kitchen, five fireplaces, and guest quarters over the garage. Architectural details include mahogany doors, brass hardware, and crown molding throughout. And to take full advantage of those extraordinary water views: There are five outdoor balconies and a wraparound bluestone patio. The property is listed for $15,000,000 by Joe Piscitelli with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Milford, CT. The Property ID # is 99125229.
