Close-up and elevated views of Stonington Harbor were perfect for this former Sea Captains Home. Grandpa’s Cottage sits majestically one street back from the harbor’s edge, capturing wide-ranging views of the harbor, distant islands and the picturesque village of Stonington. Situated on nearly an acre on a dead end street, the home provides a peaceful setting to appreciate the beautiful surroundings whether from inside, while picnicking in the yard, or lounging on the wrap around deck. It is only a quick walk in to downtown Stonington from this much desired convenient location.
Grandpa’s Cottage, as the name would imply, is a loving family home full of cherished memories. Its welcoming and relaxed environment will have you feel right at home. Decorated with antiques and family heirlooms, the home offers tranquil reminders of years past. Rooms are spacious and almost every room captures the surrounding harbor views. Downstairs you’ll find a large country eat-in kitchen, with ample cabinets and counter space, table seating for four, and the kitchen sink window looking out to the harbor. The adjacent dining room offers seating for six on its fine oak table and buffet. The living room offers plentiful seating for the family to gather, with bay windows looking out to the active harbor scene. There is also a bathroom with walk in shower on the main level.
Before heading up the main stairway, take a peak at the “old ships door” to the storage area under the stairs, reminding us of the homes seafaring connection. The upstairs can be accessed by the main stairway off the living room, or the back stairway off the kitchen. Upstairs are 3 bedrooms and one bathroom. The two exterior bedrooms have double beds and look out to the harbor. The middle bedroom has a twin bed, and looks to the back side of the property.
Grandpa's Cottage provides a "home away from home" in one of Stonington's most desired neighborhoods - Greenhead.
