Dramatic Waterfront Simplicity in Stamford, Connecticut


Offered at $2,975,000

Nestled on Stamford’s Shippan Point, an extraordinary boating community on a peninsula jutting into Long Island Sound, the comfortable waterfront estate offers unusual privacy close to a sandy beach. Neither contemporary nor traditional, the home reflects relaxed living in its intriguing high, wide, and handsome open interior with extensive views of the water—especially from the curved, window-walled, spectacular glass-ceilinged living room that opens to the kitchen and dining areas. Highlights include fossil-shell tile floors, a soaring 34-foot stone fireplace, and a terrace accessed from the dazzling dining area. The second level is comprised of a unique master bedroom with lovely master bath, its own terrace, and a large glass wall to highlight the alluring water views, and two additional sleeping quarters and full bath. A spacious lower level features an impressive family room of window walls and a second floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, a wine closet or sauna, an office/bedroom and bath, and an exercise studio with glass doors to the ground-level patio abutting the beach. Outside, garden-club variety plantings surround the vibrant patio and grounds, and a two-car garage with kitchen entry lies at the end of a circular driveway edged in Belgian block. The St. David’s Bluff Association offers a shared tennis court and beach. The whole house is a powerful expanse of space and light close to all of Stamford’s downtown amenities and advantages—the arts, theatre, library, fine dining, and train service to New York City.
