15 Academy Lane, Old Lyme, CT, Connecticut 06371. Distinctive waterfront residence in a private setting on the Lieutenant river, in the village of Old Lyme. Originally designed by R. Frederick Kelly in 1931, it was then expanded and updated in 1993 by architect Paul B. Bailey. The first-floor offers a great flow for entertaining large parties, with 3 large adjoining rooms, wide doorways, and double pocket doors. There is also a cozy den off the foyer, and a private office in the rear of the house. The 2-story addition added a sun-filled family room with 180-degree water views, and a private master bedroom suite, bringing the interior up to date. The expanded kitchen includes professional appliances and several work areas that any chef would enjoy. An elevator was added that services three floors. An inviting stone terrace overlooks the lawn sloping down to the river and deep-water dock. This is an ideal setting for entertaining and relaxing while reveling in natures beauty, including spectacular sunsets. Upstairs, two additional bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms and one offers a balcony overlooking the river. There is also a second-floor office with built-in cabinetry overlooking the back yard. Stairs lead to the third-floor attic with cedar closets. There is a workshop in the lower level as well as a heated workshop in the garage. The property offers a unique waterfront lifestyle and peaceful privacy while being steps to the village of Old Lyme.
