Property Description

Once in a generation opportunity to own prime waterfront with private dock in coveted Tokeneke. A historic property sited high on a peninsula with unobstructed water views from every room of the house to Scotts Cove and Long Island Sound. You can live where the famous author Anne Morrow Lindbergh wrote her novels and where American aviation hero, Charles Lindbergh docked his seaplane. 1.77 acres with over 625 feet of shoreline. Exceptional six bedrooms, 5 ½ baths with gracious rooms, high-end craftsmanship, and a seamless open floor plan. This stunning Nantucket style home is well above FEMA compliance and boasts a solid foundation of structural steel, hurricane-grade windows and two garages with room for five cars. A private dock can accommodate two seaworthy boats or, for the owner who has a fleet, a mooring can be dropped offshore. Enjoy abundant wildlife and an ever-changing scene at the water’s edge with the constant rhythm of the tide — own your private waterfront sanctuary. This property can be combined with 21 Tokeneke Trail to create a 4.6 acres compound with a guest house with over 1,100 of waterfront. Use the quaint cottage for guests, go kayaking/boating or go fishing. Embrace the waterfront lifestyle and create memories for the generation to come.
