The winding driveway, graced by sweeping lawns and massive stone fences, one enters a place harking back to a slower, more gracious time. lined by majestic maples and copper beech trees, the drive takes you to a grand italianate-style manor house overlooking 10 acres of lawns, formal gardens, fields and woodlands all within the rolling hills of lyme. the three-story, 1870 stone villa is surrounded by covered porches and a porte-cochere. the grand front entry hall with an elegant staircase opens to dining room and a warm, inviting library, each with 19th century marble fireplaces and 12-foot ceilings. one is struck immediately by the architectural details of moldings, william morris wallpapers, and gleaming wood floors. the kitchen retains a timeless brightness and functionality with a very handsome butler’s pantry. the addition of the family room with fireplace and a two-car garage, are seamlessly integrated into the style and detail of the main structure. the grounds are truly breathtaking, with a stone pergola draped with a riot of wisteria leading to a formal sunken garden with flowering trees and shrubs. there is also a privately sited pool with ogee pavilions housing changing room and pool equipment. in addition, there is a barn with a spacious potting room. the property sits in proximity to protected forests and fields with miles of walking and equestrian trails. this is a truly magnificent estate situated in “one of the last great places in the western hemisphere.”
