This remarkable property represents an eclectic blend of 2 historic embankment homes on a bucolic 6.8 acre parcel, high on a hill above Hamburg Cove of the lower CT River. In 1989 the John Mansfield house from Wallingford was moved to 83 Joshuatown Rd in Lyme, where it was reconstructed as a wing to the original existing circa 1760 antique colonial home. The two homes were joined by a constructed common kitchen area with a two story ceiling and arched windows providing wonderful views down the hillside toward Hamburg Cove. The French Doors lead to the garden with fountain and garden house. Architectural artifacts are creatively used throughout the home. The property offers 5 bedrooms, 4 full baths and 2 half baths. The lower level of the Mansfield house connects to the kitchen and contains the tavern room, a home office and an exercise room. Ascending the staircase from the kitchen brings you to a landing with the first floor of the Mansfield house and the second floor of the original 1760’s home. This second level of the original home offers two bedrooms, with views of the cove and two full baths. The Mansfield wing brings you to the music room, library, main parlor and center hall. The upper level has 3 bedrooms and two full baths, perfect private guest accommodations. Not to be missed is the 56′ x 44′ post and beam barn with garage for six. Enjoy the convenience of being halfway between New York and Boston while living in the historic town of Lyme, CT with marinas.
