A Rare Robert A.M. Stern-Designed Home in Old Lyme Is Up for Sale
In the 1990s, Life magazine featured an annual “dream house” for which the editors commissioned one architect per year to draw up plans for a model home, representing the newest ideas for modern living. Readers were able to buy those plans for $600 or less. Robert A.M. Stern, our 2016 CTC&G IDA Innovator Award recipient, was the first architect involved, and the plans he published came to life in a house built on a pretty, waterfront lot in Old Lyme. The residence recently hit the market for $1,195,000, but has already come down a smidgen and now asks $1,050,000.
The shingle-style home offers a lovely great room with a fireplace, along with four bedrooms and bathrooms, including a master suite with a private deck overlooking the river and marshland. Picturesque and spacious, the charming abode is an absolute treasure. Jennifer and Jane Associates of William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty has the listing.
