In 2021 an exquisite, sunny 700 SF office/studio space was added as a separate wing accessed by a private staircase. The artful floor plan affords a seamless balance of open and intimate spaces for ultimate functionality and luxury. Ever-changing panoramic views of the gracious grounds, North Cove, the CT River, hills of Lyme, and a parade of waterfowl, eagles, and osprey are framed by windows at every turn. The spacious screened porch and adjacent bluestone terrace with a firepit are the go-to outdoor hangout spots. Inside, the architectural details are both quiet and attention-grabbing at once. The dark oak floors are a counterpoint for handsome millwork, built-ins, bookcases, french doors, and fireplaces. The kitchen does not disappoint. Thermador appliances anchor custom cabinetry, marble countertops, a stunning crystal chandelier, and abundant storage space. The sense of stillness and calm at this property is soothing and inspiring. Live inspired!
