Two-Faced Beach House Hides Modern Behind Colonial Facade

New, 8 comments

The street-side facade of this 1983 waterfront house in Old Lyme, Conn. looks little different from a typical, vaguely colonial McMansion, but behind that ho-hum front lies a thoroughly modern glassy cube reminiscent of Richard Meier's work. The walls of glass make the most of the property's views of Long Island Sound and open onto a broad deck with inset swimming pool. That deck leads down to a grassy lawn and, beyond that, a small patch of rarely trafficked beach. Listed for $2.8M, the odd four-bedroom, four-bath spread features a pair of garages, updated kitchen appliances, and plenty of balconies.
