If walls could talk! This property is an eclectic blend of 2 historic homes on a bucolic 6.7 acre hill above Hamburg Cove. In 1989 the John Mansfield house from Wallingford was moved to 83 Joshuatown Rd in Lyme, where it was reconstructed as a wing to a 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 and the first floor of the Mansfield house and connects to the second floor of the 1760’s home. Turning into the original home brings you to two bedrooms with views of the cove and two full baths. Turning to 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. Not to be missed is the 56' x 44' post and beam barn with garage for 6. It is now time for a new steward of this property to enjoy the eclectic blend of structures and architectural artifacts, that with love and care, will restore this special property to the vision held dear by the original owners.
