The most spectacular 2 acre waterfront location available in today's market boasting over 500 feet of waterfront and 270 degree views of the water with potential second lot! As Guilford's iconic Shoreline Residence, 39 Vineyard Place was conceived by renowned New Haven architect Douglas Orr and completed in 1930. The 6.600 square foot residence is surrounded on 3 sides by water and is a formidable structure composed predominantly of Stony Creek granite and has stood tall during all of Mother Natures occasional tantrums. One of Mr. Orrs signature details are the porthole windows located in the Family Great Room which boasts beautifully detailed walls "pecky" cypress. The library addition boasts spectacular views and was completed in 1978 with a cedar shingle faade. Adjacent to the library, and of particular note, is the spacious dining room featuring endless views of Long Island Sound; but memorable because of its curved, ribbed ceiling designed to resemble carlins used in the overhead of a ships cabin. The large kitchen area features a separate prep area, center island and breakfast nook overlooking the water. The second floor welcomes guests with six bedrooms while the third floor boasts an informal game room overlooking Long Island Sound. The prior owner was an avid yachtsman. His summer commute consisted of boarding his tender, moored in the adjacent cove and commuting out to his 48 foot sailboat which he kept at Sachems Head Harbor.
