The property at 44 Salt Acres Road has sold for $2,400,000. The buyers were represented by DeeDee Buffum, Broker Associate of Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty. Lucia Johnstone and Henri Gourd of Berkshire Hathaway New England Properties represented the seller.
According to SmartMLS, this is the seventh highest sale in Stonington, Connecticut this year. Nestled in to the village of Stonington and accessed by a private causeway, the vibrancy of the property is truly spectacular. With views of the ocean from every direction, this nearly three-acre parcel provides endless possibility. The updated historic cottage, Lord & Burnham greenhouse, and barn/shed are surrounded by green lawns, grand trees, and a mature garden that has been featured in House Beautiful Magazine.
The property has been the subject of artists’ plein air painting retreats as well as Stonington Garden Club’s garden tours. This extraordinary property is one of only four homes on the 32 acres Edwards Point. Its location is a well-recognized boater’s landmark at the curve of Sandy Point, just as you enter the channel to head in towards Little Narragansett Bay and Watch Hill, Rhode Island.
“I am honored by the opportunity to represent the buyers in this sale. This property blends everything they were seeking in to one magnificent location – wonderful walkability, village life, access to water & beaches, colorful sunrises & sunsets, gardens and trees. The sellers have been wonderful stewards of this land and have done a graceful job in helping in transition. When you stand on the edge of the 44 Salt Acres waterfront, you see Watch Hill and its lighthouse, Stonington Borough, Sandy Point and Fisher’s Island, NY,” says DeeDee Buffum. “Reaching beyond the Rhode Island border, Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty provides exceptional service to clients in all of our interconnected shoreline communities.”
