Location: Lyme, Connecticut
A well-maintained colonial is always charming, and this 1754-built home is no exception. Known as the Ebenezer Russell house, named after a private in the Revolutionary War who later went on to become a politician, the restored 2,816-square-foot home sits on 1.6 woodsy acres in Lyme, Connecticut, and boasts plenty of original details in addition to modern updates.
As far as architectural elements go, the red-painted, wood-frame house features wide-plank floors, wood paneling, and multiple brick fireplaces. The first floor includes a living room, formal dining, a bedroom, and bathroom, with a renovated kitchen with breakfast nook, a mudroom, and access to a patio following in a space off the main area.
Upstairs are the master suite with walk-in closet, an additional bedroom, study with built-in bookcases, and a laundry room. There’s even an attic space for storage and another bedroom. Other updates include central air conditioning, automatic start-up generator, and an attached two-bay garage. Located at 117 Cove Road just minutes from Hamburg Cove and the Connecticut River, it’s offered at just under $670,000.
