In 2002 the firm of HP Broom, Housewright, was commissioned to build a house for a Lyme resident on 5 bucolic and pristine acres of field and meadow. The centerpiece of the house, a 1750 Blacksmith Shop, was meticulously dismantled in New Hampshire and transported to the quintessential New England hamlet of Lyme, once voted Best Small Town in Connecticut. It was masterfully rebuilt on its new foundation and given a new life. Every plank, every peg and tendon was perfectly put into place, including the wheel which once lifted the mare to receive her new shoes. In 2010 the 2500 square foot home underwent a transformation for the new owners, painstakingly worked on for one year by the very same craftsmen. It is now 4000 plus square feet of luxury living with a first floor master and a 21st century cathedral kitchen enjoying its own wood burning fireplace. Designed to look like an old structure added on to over the years, indeed centuries, includes four private bedroom suites and walled in private garden filled with roses and hydrangea to offer sanctuary. So unique and special is this residence that it has been published several times, most recently as HOUSE OF THE DAY for the Wall Street Journal (WSJ, June 24th, "Joining the Old and New in Lyme", and the cover story of the March 2013 issue of Connecticut Cottages Magazine (CTCandG) “REWRITING HISTORY”. The lower Connecticut River Valley, unbelievably rich in beauty and history, offers many recreational possibilities, not to mention unique theatre, art and artists, and superb dining. This section of Connecticut, nestled between the River and the Sound, is iconic and timeless, as is the house which shares its landscape.
