This center chimney colonial is a rare-find, never before offered and located just outside the village, walking distance to the Old Lyme Inn and the Florence Griswold Museum. The property was custom built with only one owner and thoughtfully updated through the years. Enter the foyer with a center staircase, flanked by a living room with fireplace with woodstove and a dining room. The kitchen sits adjacent the dining room with a den. The primary bedroom with full bath and laundry room is set privately completing the first floor. Hardwoods are found throughout - with exception of the kitchen and baths. Upstairs find two bedrooms with hardwoods, closets and charming eve storage and a full bath. There are two basements. Under the main home is a daylight, walkout basement accessible from the kitchen. The second basement runs underneath the bedroom addition and accessed from the exterior providing great additional storage workshop area. There is a one car garage. Outside, the deck overlooks a very private backyard and the woodlands. Framed by mature landscape, this is a gem. The location supports any buyer updates to make it your own. A classic.
