When the Great Northwest combines with New England charm it creates this architectural gem, "Stone Ledge" on 10 acres in Lyme.  Reclaimed beams matched with granite create a warm aesthetic only enhanced by tall stoic timbers and wide plank oak floors.  Designed and built in 1990, this home was the dream of Albert Firestone and Norma Terris (of Ziegfeld Follies & Goodspeed’s Norma Terris theater) and built with comfort and entertaining in mind. The granite-timber exterior is set against soaring Douglas firs, specimen trees and shrubs, blueberry bushes, and casual stone sculptures, setting the stage for relaxation....

The granite-timber exterior is set against soaring Douglas firs, specimen trees and shrubs, blueberry bushes, and casual stone sculptures, setting the stage for relaxation. There is over 2000 sqft of granite on a tri-level patio privately nestled into the terraced landscape. The home features 3 bdrms, including a flexible guest suite/family rm on the lower level.  A gourmet kitchen with palatial windows and cabinets galore awaits on the main level. 9 ft+ ceilings leading to cathedral ceilings in several rooms create an airy feeling throughout.  Extras include a butler’s pantry, marble flrs, 3 granite fireplaces, a sauna, kayak/bike shed. Rounding out the entertaining space is the 32’x26’ finished room above the garage. This space is perfect for a possible in-law suite, art or music studio. The remaining 9 acres abuts Lyme Land Trust land and is wooded with an abandoned paddock area on the hill.  Lots of possibilities here. Lyme has over 11,000 acres of protected land and trails, award winning schools and halfway between Boston and NY.
