“Off the Beaten Path: Houses by the Sea

Stonington -

STONINGTON—The ninth annual Stonington Public Library tour, “Off the Beaten Path”  will take place from 1-4 p.m. Friday, July 15, originating at the library. The tour is a benefit for the library.
At the far end of Sand Beach Road viewers will find a home designed by Elliot and Elliot. From the massive 23 foot high windows, the bold views look out to Fifield Point and Vinalhaven on Penobscot Bay. Further down the road is a 1983 house with a spacious wrap-around deck and post-and-beam barn built five years ago by Dick Brown who will be on hand to explain its construction. This interesting property features sculptures cast by the owner’s father.
Two homes can be viewed on Moose Island. The first is a single-style home with a corner windowed turret and lovely stone fireplaces. Finished in a variety of woods, the house feels warm and inviting—the ideal setting for its “Arts and Crafts” furnishings. Also on Moose Island is a 1930s summer cottage that has retained its original charm. From the sun porch, picture windows provide a panoramic view of the Fox Islands and Camden Hills.
Completing the tour is the newest home which sits nestled on granite boulders facing the Deer Isle Thoroughfare. It was designed with the simplest of looks to emphasize the beauty of the timber frame and the natural landscape which surrounds the house.
