Description

Welcome to Laurel Hill. Enticingly perched atop the rolling hills of Lyme above Hamburg Cove, and seemingly within arms reach of soaring bald eagles, this gracious contemporary awes its visitors with dramatic views over the mouth of the CT River, the Sound and Long Island. Notable architect Jerome Buttrick designed Laurel Hill for his parents as a modern version of the nineteenth century New England shingle style. The only owners since its creation, the family is noteworthy for its long line of architects for many generations. Laurel Hill displays an elegance that subtly melds into its environment. Grounded by a large, granite rock, the first floor, with its quarter-sawn, white oak floors, changes in level to mimic the surrounding topography. Solid mahogany, custom doors and windows with UV protection on the south and east exposures beckon in the light and enhance the views. Rare, green slate around the fireplace, soaring 10' ceilings and European designed radiators add to the uniqueness of this home. A 2bd/2ba, 1,560 Sq foot guest house adds to the property's versatility for visiting friends or family and creates a total living space of just over 5,000 sq ft. With 11.87 acres surrounded by conservation land on 2 sides and protected from future development by restricted covenants on adjacent properties, this home affords total privacy. Professional landscaping and beautiful rock gardens only add to the allure of this magical oasis.
