Stonington Annual House Tour

Stonington -

STONINGTON -  “Indian Point Road Inside Out,” the Stonington Public Library’s eighth annual house tour, will feature five houses from 1-4pm on Friday, July 9.  The tour is a benefit for the library.

Picturesquely perched along Indian Point Road, five homes comprise this year’s tour. The tour begins just beyond the Lobster Co-Op at Perry Hunter’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 home’s grounds once included a bait shack—now an office—and a model T-sized garage—now an exercise room. The newest home was built in 2007. Designed by Robert Knight, the home’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 stoningtonlibrary@stonington.lib.me.us A limited number of tickets will be available the day of the tour at the library.
