Welcome to The Stone House: an almost acre and a half compound directly on LI Sound with an elegant main house clad in granite & a charming seasonal beach front cottage right at waters’ edge on its own private beach. The main house - at close to 5000 square feet - has an ideal floor plan. The 1st floor includes a large LR with a granite wood burning FP & sliding doors to a bluestone terrace, a formal dining room, a wood paneled library/den with another granite wood burning FP adjacent to a large eat-in kitchen w/home office & pantry. There is also a generous sized primary BR suite with a terrace overlooking the water, a spa bathroom & extensive closets (one is cedar lined) & a guest room with ensuite bath. The 2nd floor has a second large living area with yet another granite wood burning FP & a balcony overlooking the Sound, a BR and bathroom. This floor could be used as a perfect in-law suite, a private office or a getaway area in a busy household. Local legend has it the seasonal cottage started life as a mess hall at a Rhode Island army base during the second World War. It was brought to Madison on a barge and placed in its current location with the workers being paid with three bushels of lobster for its delivery and installation. It’s now a picture book 1 BR, 1 bath bungalow with a combo LR/kitchen plus a covered porch & outdoor shower. Beyond wonderful! Located at the end of a private country lane, 85 Beach Avenue offers enviable privacy & unparalleled seaside living.
