Tour a Coastal Old Lyme Estate for Sale for the First Time in Over 50 Years

In Old Lyme, a hilltop estate known as Quarry House is available for the first time in more than 50 years. The secluded, tranquil property was owned by Nancy Krieble, a prominent supporter of the artistic community that has long flourished around the area’s Florence Griswold Museum and Lyme Academy of Fine Arts. Nestled right on the water, it first listed for $8.2 million in January, but has now received a $1 million price slash to bring the ask to $7.2 million.

The circa-1930s Colonial is your picture-perfect New England home, with its white-clapboard exteriors and interior fixtures and features including custom millwork, arched-top doors and hardwood floors. It sits on 48 acres, which offer a swimming pool and terrace, a fishing pond, hiking trails and a dock along the Connecticut River.

Ideal for summer days or year-round living, the estate also counts a guest house by the pool. All in all, there are 5,158 square feet, six bedrooms, and seven and a half baths to spread out across. Colette Harron and Beth Cote of William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty share the listing.
