Welcome to ‘Highover,’ a 30-acre hilltop estate on the lower Connecticut River designed by Alfred Hopkins. Over half a mile of water frontage makes this one of the most private waterfront settings in the state, with natural physical barriers that provide security and protection. Many notable guests have visited, including Albert Einstein, Katherine Hepburn, President Harding, and William Gilette. A 5-year renovation occurred at the sprawling 5 BED/8 BATH chateau residence and the 3 BED/4 BATH 1820s Federal Style guest house next to the pillared gated entry. The ground-up renovations exemplify the owner’s endless devotion to bringing the expected appurtenances into both homes while preserving their classic architecture. A new 3-bay garage with a workshop above and a spacious tobacco barn would accommodate many recreational needs. The dock on Whalebone Creek easily accommodates the owner’s 36’ Hinckley Picnic boat. For larger boats, a 10-minute boat ride brings you to your mooring at Hamburg Cove, one of the East’s best hurricane holes. If your vessel is over sixty feet, marinas are available at the mouth of the river. Lyme is the quintessential enchanted classic New England setting of antique homes, stone walls, and undisturbed countryside. Uniquely poised between New York and Boston and a short ride to world-class entertainment at 2 of the world's largest casinos - Foxwoods & Mohegan Sun. Less than an hour by helicopter from JFK, Logan, and Bradley.
