This home is a special blend of the old and the new. One of Connecticut’s oldest homes, George Washington danced in the house when it was the Peck Tavern and it once served as the Old Lyme Art Guild. But this historical gem has all the updated amenities of a new home – geothermal heating and A/C, fully renovated bathrooms, a beautiful new 24X14 kitchen with granite counters and top of the line appliances and a large sunroom full of light that overlooks the gardens on three sides. The flow of the house and outdoor stone patio makes it ideal for entertaining. Surrounded by 3 acres of property, this extraordinary circa1680 home is steeped in historical significance. Beamed ceilings and corner posts are hand hewn, with wide board floors throughout. There is a gracious dining room with an original corner cupboard, double chandeliers and a large stone cooking fireplace with beehive oven. The 25X14 living room has an original fireplace that is flanked with carved wood tombstone shaped paneling. The 25x13 master bedroom with an original fireplace has a wall hinged at the ceiling which historically was used to create two separate rooms. The new Master bath with radiant heat has a glass shower, twin basins and tiled basket weave marble floor. A large two-story barn has two car bays and a horse stall. The home is recorded on The National Register of Historic Places; the barn is on the Connecticut Historic Trust Barn Tour. Minutes from I-95 and located half way between NYC and Boston.
