The Finest Shingle-Style House in Connecticut Lists for $995,000

An Eastern Point Gem in Connecticut

The national register of historic places calls a circa-1895 Groton home “probably the finest Shingle-Style house” in the area. It’s located directly on the water on Eastern Point, where the Thames River empties into Long Island Sound, a one-time fashionable seaside neighborhood and, to this day, a pretty fabulous spot by the looks of it.

Because it was built during the Victorian craze, it is tricked out with embellishments of the era, such as a turret, a tower, a wraparound porch and, inside, a fanciful staircase, wainscoting and other custom woodwork.

The 3,435-square-foot interiors also offer four bedrooms and five bathrooms, including a master suite with a sitting area overlooking the water. It lists for $995,000 with Tony Walstra of William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty.
