In true Gilded Age fashion, Stoneleigh manor house was built high atop Brushy Ridge Road with sweeping views of Long Island Sound allowing the salty breezes to flow throughout the home. High ceilings, long windows, and generously scaled rooms are featured on three floors, providing a timeless floor plan attractive for both formal and informal gatherings. The first floor rooms integrate easily with “the” destination outdoor space, a grand back porch stretching the full length of the home. A center hall flooded with light is flanked by an elegant living room with a beautiful fireplace and a romantic dining room overlooking the backyard. The scale of the front hall space is attractive for entertaining as it extends front to back from the porte cochere to the expansively deep summer porch. Professionally designed and well appointed luxury kitchen and family room offer compelling spaces to linger and enjoy watching the seasons change outside. Upstairs on the second floor, there are 5 ensuite bedrooms, including the primary bedroom suite with a sitting room overlooking Long Island Sound. The third floor was rebuilt to include a playroom/bunkroom with fantastic views around the Sound. The carriage house completely separate and away from the main house, offers privacy for guests or work from home space. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to acquire a truly remarkable manor house with memorable long lawns and breathtaking views of Long Island Sound.
