On the Market: European-style stone colonial in Wilton thoughtfully placed in natural setting

Visionary, self-taught architect Frazier Forman Peters (1895-1963) gave old stone new life, often unearthing boulders on a particular property and using them in the construction of his famed stone houses.

Peters built more than 200 houses from Virginia to Maine, including about 60 in Connecticut, many of which still dot the Fairfield County landscape. Among them is the enchanting Old Stone, a European-style stone and shingle colonial house on a nearly five-acre estate at 354 Nod Hill Road in Wilton. Peters built in in 1932.
