This reimagined lakeside cottage is an idyllic retreat with a 265 acre pristine lake at your doorstep. A combination of open lofted spaces and intricate details evoke a rustic sophistication punctuated by stunning views. Grain fir floors, locally quarried stone, a gas fireplace, beamed ceilings and window seat enhance spaces crafted for multiple uses. A sun-filled kitchen has gas cooking and incredible storage. The great room offers dedicated dining and seating areas. A first-floor bedroom features exposed stone. The mudroom/laundry/office and a full bath complete this level. A turned stair leads to the primary suite with views. The main house is an efficient 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths, 1507 SF, and the post & beam barn, just 20 steps away, offers tremendous additional living space on two floors - a first floor studio and upper level guest quarters (the third BR) with kitchenette and full bath. There is a 2- bay garage with a large storage area. Both buildings are completely renovated (see spec sheets) – both infrastructure/embellishments: well, septic, wiring, plumbing, Marvin windows/doors, HE propane heating, on demand hot water and central air. Sited on one of the largest lakefront parcels, find 1.49 acres (in a .25 acre zone), plenty of room to enjoy and retain a sense of privacy. This home is 2 miles to Old Lyme village galleries, shops and schools. If you’re not yet convinced return for the sunset. Flood insurance is not required. Welcome home.
