Long winding drive embraced by stunning towering stone outcroppings takes you to a spellbinding home rising out of earth and stone. Designed by visionary renowned architect Jonathan Isleib, perhaps best known for designs that bear a symbiotic relationship with nature. The heart of the home is the custom stone fireplace rising 30 feet in a cathedral size great room, which combines the living area and dining room into an expansive space that is still in view of the kitchen. Vaulted, cathedral and pyramid ceilings add drama. The openness creates spaces that are great for both entertaining or just hanging out with the family, feeling together even though each person may be spread among the spaces. Surround yourself in an exotic enchanting personal retreat sited atop 23 acres of lush grounds in harmony with giant rocks, ledge outcroppings, and soft river stones that beckon you into the natural elegance of this home that blurs the lines between indoors and out. A circumference of windows with simultaneous sunrises and sunsets with view of Rogers lake and occasional glimpses of the ocean. Come, walk in the footsteps of Impressionist Childe Hassam and William Chadwick who painted the landscape here. Lyme was, for a time, designated as the "American Barbizon”, and became known as the most famous Impressionist colony in America, the "American Giverny." Newsweek once named Lyme-Old Lyme High School as one of the best in America. Purchase includes 2 lots. 12ac. and 11 ac.
