Built in 1783, the Stonington Borough home for sale at 39 Water Street is currently set up as a four unit dwelling but can easily be converted back to a one family home.
39 Water Street is on the corner of Diving Street and is across the street from Stonington Commons.

Located in the southeastern corner of Connecticut, Stonington is the only Connecticut town facing the Atlantic Ocean. Historically a whaling port and now home of the last remaining commercial fishing fleet in Connecticut, the Stonington Borough looks out at Block Island, RI and Fishers Island, NY. Situated between Little Narragansett Bay and Fishers Island Sound, the mile long peninsula is full of restaurants, coffee houses, boutiques and galleries. From “the Point” you can watch the moon come up over the Watch Hill Lighthouse while boats of all sizes return from the sea as the sun sets over Stonington Harbor.
Just a two minute walk past Stonington Borough homes from either the Point or the village is 39 Water Street! The three-story Colonial built in 1783 boasts 3,032 sq. ft. plus a detached garage. A backyard garden offers privacy while being in the middle of what the Boston Globe described as a “See Worthy” community. Or you may want to say hello to the many visitors strolling by while sitting on the patio in the front yard.
The house is split into four units, the largest having 6 rooms including two bedrooms. The 4 room unit also has two bedrooms while a three room and single room unit each have one bedroom. All four units have a full bath. The laundry room is in the basement.
Across the street is one of the area’s highest profile and most luxurious developments, Stonington Commons. Exclusive and elegant, it occupies a lovely waterfront parcel of land right on the water in the Borough. With 34 high end condominiums and 7 single family residences, it also has a 30 boat marina, and is designed to allow for public access to the waterfront.
History buffs will enjoy Stonington Harbor Light Museum one block away. It was the first lighthouse established by the USA back in 1823. Or you can visit the home of Capt. Nathaniel B. Palmer, the discoverer of the peninsula of Antarctica in 1821. Of course you could get a bite to eat in one of the local establishments and listen to stories of forced British retreats during both the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812!
