About 137 Leetes Island Rd

Just outside of the artistic village of Stony Creek in Branford, Connecticut sits 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; cared for almost two and one-half centuries by among others, a Town Selectman, teachers, and a pioneer of “moving pictures”. 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. The land was bestowed the prestigious A.V.A. Designation; designating it as a Viticultural Area with soils second only to the Connecticut River Valley and well suited for a Shoreline Vineyard. The “farm” is composed of four parcels, at just under 63 acres. The largest of the four parcels, directly across from the farmhouse and stone barn, totals 34.3 acres. The farm itself, on the opposite side of Leetes Island Road sits on 5.8 acres and embraces the farmhouse, stone barn, milk house, farm stand, and other structures. Almost 20 acres of spectacularly textured land is situated across Red Hill Road, while the remaining 3 acres is located two parcels down Leetes Island Road, closer to Stony Creek.
