STONINGTON, Conn., Sept. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- New York-based Concierge Auctions is pleased to announce the October 29th auction of the Crossover Estate, an idyllic oasis in a park-like setting offering ultimate privacy, yet mere minutes from the quaint towns of Stonington and Mystic, Connecticut and only a few hours from New York City and Boston. Situated around a natural pond and spanning 21 acres with rolling lawns and tall trees, the Crossover estate offers two homes, a sparkling pool and pool house, a tennis court and 700 feet of saltwater estuary that allows kayak or small boat access to Stonington Harbor. Originally offered for $3.95 million, the property will sell without reserve in two parcels or in its entirety to the highest bidder in cooperation with Jim Michalove of Seaboard Properties.
"What I love about this place is the feeling of absolute privacy, surrounded by 100-foot-tall trees, in an open and beautifully landscaped piece of land. You feel a thousand miles away from the world, but all you have to do is drive out of the driveway and you are back in civilization," stated the seller, Edward Tapley. "My family and I have had the pleasure of enjoying this home for years — it is terrific for entertaining and a perfect space for the kids to run around. This is one of the last standing estates in the area that offers this kind of living and outdoor space, and we hope that the next owners will value this very special home as much as we have."
The main house offers 4,800-square-feet and features a comfortable living room and dining room, both with hardwood floors, wainscoting and large picture windows. Also including a cozy den with wet-bar and light-filled sunroom, one room flows into another, and all roads seem to lead to the cheerful breakfast room and kitchen. This heart of the home provides a full range of gourmet appliances, a large Hanstone island, a skylight and generous storage. Downstairs, the large heated basement includes a shuffleboard court and built-in shelving for extra storage. The grounds also include a sun-filled pool house with a large kitchenette and dining area for a between-swim snack, a full bathroom and an exercise room with an adjoining sauna.
Being offered as a separate 5.5-acre parcel if desired, the 1,268-square-foot secondary house includes three bedrooms and one full and one half bathrooms. It features a two-car garage, a fireplace for wintertime warmth and a covered porch for relaxing summer evenings.
Widely considered the most picturesque seaside village in Connecticut, Stonington Borough is a renowned sailing and boating center. Nearby are numerous golf courses, horseback riding and excellent saltwater fishing. The Crossover estate is minutes to the Stonington Harbor Yacht Club and the Stonington Country Club with its pristine golf course.
"I am excited to be working with Concierge Auctions through this process," added Tapley. "The chance to own this property is a one-of-a-kind opportunity, and I know Concierge Auctions will communicate its value appropriately. Concierge has the platform and experience to target the potential buyers who will appreciate this land, and we look forward to a positive and exciting outcome on auction day."
