Stonington House Tour July 15

STONINGTON — Five homes will be featured in the ninth annual Stonington Public Library house tour, “Off the Beaten Path.”

The tour will take place on Friday, July 15, from 1 to 4 p.m. The tour is a benefit for the library.

At the far end of Sand Beach Road viewers will find a home designed by Elliot and Elliot. From the massive 23-foot-high windows, the bold views look out to Fifield Point and Vinalhaven.

Farther down the road is a 1983 house with a wrap-around deck and post-and-beam barn built five years ago by Dick Brown, who will be on hand to explain construction.

Two homes can be viewed on Moose Island. The first is a single-style home with a corner windowed turret and lovely stone fireplaces.

Also on Moose Island is a 1930s summer cottage with a panoramic view of the Fox Islands and Camden Hills.

Completing the tour is the newest home, which sits nestled on granite boulders facing the Deer Isle Thorofare.

The houses will be numbered for identification and may be visited in any sequence. All are within a mile of the library, which is located on Main Street in Stonington.

Tickets are available from Sally Richardson at 367-2621 and at the library.

A limited number of tickets will be available at the library on the day of the tour.
