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.”

  • Remarks addendumFollowing the winding driveway, graced by sweeping lawns and massive stone fences, one can feel one's heart rate fall as 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 in the Connecticut River valley. The three-story, 1870 stone villa is surrounded by covered porches and a porte-cochere. Entering the grand front entry hall with patterned floor, the elegant front staircase, lit by a central skylight, leads the eye upward to the upper floors. On either side of the hall is the formal Dining Room with a glass chandelier 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 was renovated in the late 1980's and retains a timeless brightness and functionality. There is also a butler's pantry between the Dining room and Kitchen. Also added by the current owners is a family room with fireplace and a two-car garage, both 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 situated pool with ogee pavilions housing changing room and pool equipment. In addition, there is a barn for tractors, mowers, storage and a fully equipped 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.”
