Just under 60 acres of pristine land situated less than 2 miles from the artistic village of Stony Creek in Branford, Connecticut; offering a range of terrains perfect for numerous adventures. Imagine, a Farm to Table Restaurant, a Farmer's Market, a place to farm a variety of vegetables and fruits and maybe, a B&B situated in the 1855 Greek Revival Farmhouse? Or, maybe a vineyard that appreciates the organic soils? Today, the property is home to a true legend in the iconic "Lakso Farm" a.k.a. "The Old Stone Barn Farm of Stony Creek". Frozen in time and weathered, the iconic farmhouse and old stone barn stand like beacons for those making their way back to the shoreline and Thimble Islands after a long week in the city. The farmhouse itself is rich in history. Purchased in 1925 by a talented stone mason by trade and his wife, the fabulous Leetes Island Road location, just off of Interstate 95 at Exit 56, still provides a perfect quick on and off for residents and visitors on their way home or to visit the scenic shoreline.
