East Lyme, Conn. (July 13, 2021) — William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty has announced the record sale of an exquisite estate in the prestigious Old Black Point neighborhood of East Lyme, Conn. The listing, which sold for $6,568,750, sets a record for the highest-ever residential sale in East Lyme, and counts as the highest sale in all of New London County in more than two and a half years.
Maris LeBlanc, broker associate with the company’s Niantic brokerage, represented both buyer and seller — a unique scenario that worked seamlessly for this sale. Representing both sides allowed for what LeBlanc called a “harmonious flow” throughout the process. “It was extremely gratifying to work with both buyer and seller,” she explained. “My clients had an extreme love for this home, which they custom-built, and then to see someone else love the property the way they did was very satisfying. It was highly rewarding for me to see it come full-circle.”
The sale marks an impressive start also for the firm’s new Niantic brokerage, which officially opened just a week before the closing of this property. “For us to have the highest sale in the town really makes a statement about who William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty is,” LeBlanc said.
The waterfront property offers every amenity and was custom-built to marry today’s lifestyle with the historic character and charm of the neighborhood. The 7,000 square-foot, five-bedroom, five full and two half-bath new construction smart home boasts state-of-the-art technology including full mechanical control at the touch of a smartphone.
Standout spaces include a chef’s kitchen with commercial appliances, slab marble, and impressive arched pocket doors; multiple bedrooms with balcony and en-suite bath; executive-style office with wood details and a hidden wet bar and fireplace; and a sunroom with heated flooring and full glass walls. The exterior spaces show off the best of waterfront living and include a heated gunite pool and bluestone patio, outdoor fireplace, gas fire pit, professionally landscaped gardens and a private 110-foot boat dock.
“This is a home of the highest caliber in terms of quality, and it also provides the lifestyle that today’s buyers are looking for — it’s a year-round staycation,” LeBlanc said.
