STONINGTON -Â â€śIndian Point Road Inside Out,â€ť the Stonington Public Libraryâ€™s eighth annual house tour, will feature five houses from 1-4pm on Friday, July 9.Â The tour is a benefit for the library.
Picturesquely perched along Indian Point Road, five homes comprise this yearâ€™s tour. The tour begins just beyond the Lobster Co-Op at Perry Hunterâ€™s house. Further down the road, a red and yellow Victorian offers commanding views of the Thoroughfare. A landmark for more than 125 years, this homeâ€™s grounds once included a bait shackâ€”now an officeâ€”and a model T-sized garageâ€”now an exercise room. The newest home was built in 2007. Designed by Robert Knight, the homeâ€™s open floor plan facilitates a casual lifestyle. Interior features include a fireplace by Freshwater Stonework and ironwork by Robert Breeden. Other houses include the renovated Ames place, once a typical 19th century saltwater farm, complete with a post and beam barn near meadows running to the sea.
Tickets ($15) are available from Mary Blackmore at 367-2409 and at the library; stop in, call 367-5926, or email firstname.lastname@example.org A limited number of tickets will be available the day of the tour at the library.
