Beautiful & Charming $1.6M Colonial is Two Historic New England Homes in One
Who doesn't love peeking inside million dollar homes?
It's always fascinating to see how the other half lives. Whether it's the fancy interior, best of the best appliances, or extra amenities that reduce the reasons you'd ever have to leave (we're talking bowling alleys, arcades, spas, and more), it's always interesting to see how grand these houses are.
For some of these properties, the appeal lies in their history and gorgeous architecture. Enter this beautiful and charming $1.6M colonial at 83 Joshuatown Road in Lyme, Connecticut, listed by Paul Smyth of Sotheby's International Realty.
You probably glanced at the title of this article and wondered "wait...two historic homes in one?" Thankfully, Paul Smyth provided a detailed explanation of this 6.8 acre property with five bedrooms, four full baths, and two half baths.
"In 1989 the John Mansfield house from Wallingford, CT was dismantled and moved to 83 Joshuatown Rd in Lyme, where it was reconstructed as a wing to a circa 1760 antique colonial home that had graced that site since its origin. The two homes were joined by a constructed common kitchen area with a two story ceiling and arched windows which provide wonderful views down the hillside toward Hamburg Cove."
Isn't that amazing? This is the home for you if you're a fan of historic charm.
Also on the property is a post and beam barn from the New Hampshire White Mountains, and a beautiful garden situated behind the main home. The house itself is also filled with architectural artifacts, like an 18th century Maine staircase and large windows from Middlebury College.
We wish that walls could talk, and can only imagine the stories these ones would tell. So, what are we waiting for? Let's explore this one-of-a-kind property.
