Location: Stonington, Conn.
The Skinny: This beautiful Victorian manse on an 11-acre private peninsula in Connecticut's historic Stonington Borough dates back to the 1850s, but looks as good as new, which is remarkable for a clapboard home which has faced the worst of the stormy North Atlantic for over 150 years. The five-bedroom, six-bathroom, 7,500-square-foot home is, as befits its 19th-century vintage, thoroughly traditional, aside from very modern kitchen and bathroom touches. There's also a Parisian-style artist's garret in the attic, along with formal sitting rooms and living areas, all with views of Little Narragansett Bay. The landscaped grounds are suitably grand, with a greenhouse, two guest cottages, tennis court, and a salt water swimming pool. Walkways through the cultivated gardens lead down to the sea, where there's a half of a mile of shoreline, a beach, and a dock with moorings for two boats. It's asking $15M.
