Charming Jewel on 6 Acre Fairy Land Setting Overlooking River
This charming circa 1790 three bedroom jewel, once owned by the renowned American impressionist artist George Bruestle, is nestled in a picturesque 6 acre fairy-land setting overlooking the river. From its 1/2 acre waterfront you can canoe to Hamburg Cove which leads out to the Connecticut River. The home has been meticulously cared for and all updates have been made while respecting its history. A half round mural of Hamburg Port by Bruestle remains in the front foyer. The foyer leads to the formal 14x15 living room which has a wood burning fireplace and access to the screened porch which overlooks the river. A first level guest bedroom also accesses the porch. The 15x22 master bedroom on the second level has a dramatic vaulted ceiling and is where town dances were once held. The updated eat-in kitchen includes Carrara marble counters and glass pane cabinets. A small corner writing desk to make your grocery list is another nod to history. A pantry and laundry room is off the kitchen and a door leads out to the stone patio; a perfect area for entertaining and al fresco dining. Also, known as the Captain Johnson House, a 1759 circa painting by G.F. Bottume hangs in the Lyme Town Hall. This much admired historical jewel is only a seven minute drive for shopping, fine dining and to I95
