What We Love About 5 SCHOOL HOUSE ROAD, MASON’S ISLAND
The space! With 4.79± acres that includes 3 building lots, there is room to develop or sell the additional land. Some of the last privately held developable waterview building sites on the island.
The island's ideal location. It's situated at the mouth of the Mystic River by Fisher's Island sound, an excellent spot for boating, fishing, sea kayaking and clamming.
The wealth of protected natural elements like the 47-acre nature preserve with walking trails, salt marshes filled with indigenous birds, and the island's mix of rocky shores and sandy beaches.
The ever-changing views. With each season comes new colors in the leaves, landscaping, and sunsets.
The Masons Island Yacht Club which offers facilities and social activities along with sailing instruction, small boat racing, swimming, tennis, and bocce.

Mason’s Island, a quaint coastal community in the Stonington village of Mystic, is recognized as one of the most beautiful seaside villages in New England. This site offers lovely views of the Mystic River and features an existing Cape-Style home. The Cape-style cottage and lot are located on the Southern side of the island offers breathtaking views down to the river. The 3,748± sq.ft. residence was designed with these views in mind, featuring expansive windows in the kitchen, den, family room, and master bedroom. Originally built in 1940, the property was expanded and renovated in consultation with world renowned Feng Shui professional, Eva Wong, of MIT. The open kitchen and family room offer ample space for people to gather together to cook, the formal living room and dining room provide space to host, a large bonus room above the garage can be used to entertain the kids, and the master bedroom with fireplace and waterviews provides a space to getaway. Additional lots are available separately, offering the potential to build your personal family compound, enjoy space, or ideal for future development. Preliminary engineering work has been completed for development.
