Open House on Masons Island in Mystic, Saturday, September 12, from 10 am- Noon at 10 Lema Road
Call it Mason’s Island, Mystic or Stonington but call 10 Lema Road home!
The three bedroom, 1.5 bath Cape is situated on nearly a quarter of an acre on a dead end road facing easterly with only ten homes on it. Backed up to 1.8 acres of protected open space, you can enjoy the natural setting. Well manicured gardens surround the home. A large flagstone walk weaves its way to the stone front steps from the asphalt driveway. The traditional New England style weathered cedar shingles and a one year old architectural shingled roof protect the home. Topping it off is an eight year old stone faced chimney.
Open the front door and you walk into the 12’ x 6’ den with wood floors and custom built-in shelves surrounding the fireplace. The stairway is set off slightly to the left. Straight ahead is the 17’ x 11’6’ kitchen, which together with the 13’6’ x 18’ dining room, stretches across the back of the house. Remodeled in 2007, the kitchen sports a gas stove, wood floor, breakfast bar, and travertine counters.
The windows are also eight years old and along with the French Doors in the dining room allow a tremendous view of the protected open space and abundant afternoon sunlight. A mud room with another entry to the back yard, a half bath with a sunlight and the attached garage are off to the right side of the kitchen.
The open space concept continues from the dining room into the 18’ x 25’ family room which brings you back to the stairway and the front door. Surround sound enhances your television viewing.
The 18’ x 16’6” master bedroom holds a king sized bed comfortably. The spacious closet has mirror faced folding doors making the room look even bigger. A full 7’ x 8’ bath is at the top of the stairs and two bedrooms are across the foyer, the one in front is 15’6” x 9’6” and the one overlooking the open space in back is 11’ x 10’.
An attic crawl space is above the foyer and a stand up attic is above the garage.
Going outside through the French Doors in the dining room is a newly grown lush backyard over the septic system installed in 2015. The one year old oil tank is encased in a Roth Outdoor Safety Tank.
Invisible fencing is present as well as a fenced in garden with a 6’ x 8’ greenhouse. There is also a 10’ x 14’ shed for storing gardening equipment and bicycles.
During the 2007 remodel the home received a 200 amp service upgrade. The furnace was also replaced. The recent kitchen, bathroom and chimney improvements and downstairs window replacements as well as the new septic system and oil tank replacement make the home move-in ready!
