11-acre Connecticut estate listed for $15 million


Looking for a nice private peninsula to call your own? Well, if you’ve got $15 million, look on at the 11-acre estate up for sale in Stonington, which was named Curbed’s House of the Day earlier this week.

The five-bedroom Victorian mansion was originally constructed back in the 1850s, but with a new kitchen and other modern touches, you’d never know the clapboard home predates the Civil War just by looking at it. Dubbed Salt Acres, the estate offers sweeping views of the Long Island Sound, as well as two guest cottages, a six-bay garage “magnificent cultivated gardens, greenhouse, tennis court, saltwater pool, half-mile of shoreline with dock and 2 moorings,” according to the listing.
