A Gracious Almost 11-Acre Estate in Lyme, CT Seeks $3.75M

One of the most impressive estates in all of Lyme, Connecticut is on the market for $3.75 million. A true compound, the nearly 11-acre spread offers a guest house, a caretaker’s cottage, and a carriage house apartment, perfect for accommodating multiple generations of family and friends. But the main house is the star of the show, accessed via a crushed-stone lane that’s lined with Linden trees and meanders past the free-form pool and stone pool terrace.

It’s a Palladian-inspired manse with a columned portico that opens onto a grand entry hall with a dramatic staircase and access to a picture gallery. The heart of the home is the two-story living room with walls lined with ornately carved paneling, a double-height hearth, and French doors with access to the terrace along one side and the open-plan kitchen on the other.

In total, there are nine bedrooms and four bathrooms within 14,573 square feet at this Lyme, CT compound. And the fact that the property allows for well-defined spaces, such as a house for visitors or a cottage for an art studio, is simply sublime.

Colette Harron and Susan Malan of William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty have the listing.
