The winding driveway, graced by sweeping lawns and massive stone fences, one enters a place harking back to a slower, more gracious time. Lined by majestic Maples and Copper Beech trees, the drive takes you to a grand Italianate-style manor house overlooking 10 acres of lawns, formal gardens, fields and woodlands all within the rolling hills of Lyme. The three-story, 1870 stone villa is surrounded by covered porches and a porte-cochere. The grand front entry hall with an elegant staircase opens to Dining Room and a warm, inviting Library, each with 19th Century marble fireplaces and 12-foot ceilings. One is struck immediately by the architectural details of moldings, William Morris wallpapers, and gleaming wood floors. The kitchen retains a timeless brightness and functionality with a very handsome butler's pantry. The addition of the family room with fireplace and a two-car garage, are seamlessly integrated into the style and detail of the main structure. The grounds are truly breathtaking, with a stone pergola draped with a riot of wisteria leading to a formal sunken garden with flowering trees and shrubs. There is also a privately sited pool with ogee pavilions housing changing room and pool equipment. In addition, there is a barn with a spacious potting room. The property sits in proximity to protected forests and fields with miles of walking and equestrian trails. This is a truly magnificent estate situated in one of the last great places in the Western Hemisphere.
