About This 1900 Waterfront Home In Branford Connecticut
Welcome to Gray Rock, your own private island! Located in the Thimble Islands archipelago off the coast of Stony Creek, Branford, Connecticut, Gray Rock, also known as East Stooping Bush Island, is one of the 23 inhabited islands in this picturesque group. Upon arriving at Gray Rock, you are greeted by a single seasonal residence, a charming stone and shingle-style home built in 1900. Positioned atop a large granite outcrop, it offers breathtaking 360-degree views of the surrounding islands, the Connecticut coast to the north, Long Island to the south, sunrises, sunsets, and a delightful array of shore birds.
With 5+ bedrooms and an abundance of walkways, decks, patios, covered and open porches nestled among stone pillars, Gray Rock is the perfect haven for gatherings with family and friends, basking in the summer sun and gentle breezes, and swimming, sailing and fishing in Long Island Sound. Step inside and be enchanted by the turn of the century woodwork, spacious rooms that invite relaxation, and a magnificent granite fireplace, ideal for evening get-togethers, storytelling, and lively card and board games.
This exclusive retreat is accessible only by boat or the seasonal passenger ferry from the mainland and is located just 2 to 2.5 hours from both New York City and Boston, whether traveling by train or car. Experience the unparalleled beauty of Gray Rock, your private island escape.
