Welcome to the French Country estate, lovingly known as 'Duck Creek". Originally built in 1943 the house was completely renovated in 1984 blending unique, historic features with modern conveniences. With more than 13 acres it is a true hideaway tucked away from the outside world yet nestled in the Village of Old Lyme. Once featured in '100 Most Beautiful Homes in America' the house is a living museum. The parquet floor in the living room is from the Fontainebleau in Paris, the chestnut paneling in the library from the Bordeaux region, the Carrara marble floors in the dining room from a prominent house on Fifth Avenue in New York City and the Corinthian pilasters are from Winterthur, a gift from Henry Francis DuPont. The main house was built with bricks and slate from a New London post office and contains 4 fireplaces with antique marble or stone hearths. Flanking the main house, additions feature wall to wall windows in the office, family room and breakfast room as well as an indoor lap pool, sauna and steam room. Antique restorer, Skip Broom fashioned custom moldings throughout. Upstairs you will find a bedroom suite with a sitting room, an enormous Master suite and a third bedroom turned into a dressing room complete with soaking tub and walk-in closets. The antique guest house offers an additional bedroom, living room and full bath. The gardens are exquisite with a stone gazebo fountain and aerated pond.
