Property Description

"THE McCURDY HOUSE" under one family ownership for over three hundred years is being offered to the market for the first time. Reputed to be the oldest home at the epicenter of picturesque, historic Old Lyme Village, the property is located on what is now known as "Church Corner". Steeped in history, available archives show that our Founding Fathers, notably George Washington and the Marquis de Lafayette as house guests. This very handsome 12 room, 5 bedroom 17th century colonial residence and its impressive large antique red barn sit on 2.65, tranquil, beautifully landscaped acres, with the potential of creating a pleasing sub-divided building lot. As expected, the home offers some wonderful and rare details, such as breathtaking "Tombstone" paneling in several public rooms, ornate period glass panels in exterior doors and window panes, as well as 8 very welcoming original fireplaces. In addition to the main house, a rear duplex apartment with a separate entrance is offered - perfect for in law, au pair, home office or rental quarters. A spacious enclosed screened-in side porch is ideal for lounging and outdoor dining. An elegant and important residence for a buyer requiring property with great provenance and is prepared to invest a little TLC where it is desired and deserved, to complete this magical and so much admired historic residence.
