William Pitt-Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty Closes Highest-Ever Home Sale in Old Lyme, Conn.

Old Lyme, Conn. (May 14, 2024) — William Pitt-Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty announced today the closing of the highest-ever residential real estate sale in Old Lyme, Conn. The Connecticut River-front estate located at 5-1 Pilgrim Landing Rd, listed with Colette Harron and Beth Cote, sold for $4,019,500.

“We are honored to have the highest sale in Old Lyme with this beautiful property, and so pleased that the sale makes such a significant statement about the desirability of this area,” said Harron. “Exuding classic Americana charm, this estate is one of the most remarkable homes on the Connecticut Shoreline. It sits on 48 private acres at the edge of the Connecticut River, offering incredible views and rich architectural heritage.”

Known as Quarry House, the property overlooks Pilgrims Landing, the Connecticut River, and Goose and Calves Island, with more than 1,000 feet of linear water frontage, a deep water dock and a boat launch. The home was built in 1930 by architect Dudley St. Clair Donnelly, who is known for Renaissance and Colonial Revival designs, and modified in 1972 by Thomas Greer Coles to add a master suite, office and guest house.

The 5,158 sq. ft. Colonial main home offers a spacious and open floor plan with elegant dental moldings, exquisite built-ins, custom millwork, arched top doors and hardwood floors throughout the living spaces. Adjacent to the main home, the guest house boasts a kitchenette, bedroom, full bath and water views from every room. The expansive property includes a fishing pond, granite ledges, hiking trails, a private beach and a gunite swimming pool with a bluestone patio and elevated spa.

“This is a classic and elegant home that brings together the best of past and present,” Cote said. “We are thrilled to complete this sale and find new owners who will have a chance to preserve its legacy.”
