Imagine buying a beach house and along with it you become part owner of your own lighthouse! See that little light house waaay out there, standing so bravely, a bright shining sentinel to all who sail by. If I read correctly, That’s the Saybrook Breakwater Lighthouse at in Fenwick Point and I believe it’s the lighthouse that’s included with the beautiful home we’re touring today.
The person who purchases this beautiful Victorian home located in Fenwick in Old Saybrook, Connecticut, will also become half owner of the lighthouse! Amazing! Isn’t Fenwick where Katherine Hepburn lived back in the day? I think it was Fenwick.
As I toured this home, I fell in love with the interior and knew I had to share it with you. It has so much charm and character, lots of great features like the screened porch visible below. There are also plenty of wonderful attic-style rooms with quirky sloped ceiling, love those! Of course those rooms come with fabulous ocean views! Let’s go inside and take the tour!
Notice the design of the front door, so pretty! Lots of beautiful wainscoting here in the entry.
Notice the stone wall, why do you think it’s there? Do you think it’s just a stone feature here in the entry? It almost looks like it has a special purpose for being there with the lanterns on either side. Maybe it was created to have a pretty table in front? It’s kind of looks like the overmantel for a fireplace.
A cozy living room with a beautiful coffered ceiling…
Love all the window seats in this home! With those views, you know whoever lives here will spend a lot of time sitting and gazing out the windows!
I’m not sure where this room is in the house. I wondered if it could be a seating area off the master bedroom. What do you think?
Gorgeous kitchen with both marble and wood countertops…the best of both worlds!
Love the glass door refrigerator! This is definitely a chef’s kitchen!
Oh, there’s that room again, so it’s off the dining area! Love all these fabulous windows. Notice how the windows in the other room don’t have mullions in the lower windows–nothing to obstruct the wonderful views.
Let’s go up and check out the bedrooms.
This is such an amazing room!
Could you stand to wake up to those views each day? Love the window seat and love that the view through the lower windows is unobstructed.
Fabulous bath! There were too many photos to share them all, but I’ll link to them at the end of the post in case you want to see every little corner of this beautiful home.
Here’s one of the bedrooms that has that fun attic-feel that I love. Cute!
Another great bedroom…love the ceilings in here!
I love that they incorporated one room into the home that has stained walls/woodwork.
The light, painted floor with nautical-compass designs keeps this room from feeling too dark.
This is where I’d live, high up here in the screened-in porch. Can you just imagine the ocean breezes!
When the screening isn’t needed, there’s a lovely open porch to enjoy. You can never, ever have too many porches! And that’s the truth! 🙂
Fenwick has both an inner and outer lighthouse. I’m guessing the one we see below is the inner lighthouse, while the one we saw earlier is the outer lighthouse. Anyone live in this area or has visited there who knows for sure? I bet this area has an amazing seafaring history since it needed two lighthouses at one time.
I’ll leave you with this enchanting nighttime view. Look at that gorgeous sky, I bet the sunsets are amazing!
