Old Lyme, Connecticut
$1,325,000 / Gothic Revival
This Gothic Revival masterpiece has been lovingly enhanced by its current owner to showcase the architectural details of an era of grand living. Square paneled oak wainscoting, stained glass heraldic panels, intricately carved mahogany window and door frames, lead paned French doors and diamond shaped windows, barley twist balusters, and sweet Juliet balconies also echo a Tudor sensibility. The large scale of the living and dining rooms are balanced by the cozy settings of a fully paneled and book cased library and a modern TV nook. Behind the entertaining scenes are an unusually large butler's pantry and a comfortable country kitchen with propane fireplace and Tudor wooden door. An east facing bluestone patio, incorporate the outdoors to the entertaining script. With 5 bedrooms, 5 1/2 baths, an artist's room, a family room and a laundry room on the 2nd & 3rd floors, the home is eminently livable for today's need for in-home offices and digital learning. Unusual for the era of this home, the basement now houses a wine tasting room and an equipped exercise area. Whether your desire is a weekend getaway or a full-time residence, let the romance of this property guide you home.
