Sitting high on a cliff in Lyme is an 18-acre estate that overlooks the Connecticut River. Located on 274 Joshuatown Road, the home stands out for its river views and its ultra-modern design.
Listed for $4.5 million, the 5,236 square-foot home was designed by architect Stephen Jacobs, who designed renovation projects for hotels like The Breakwater Hotel in Miami Beach, the Gansevoort Hotel Miami Beach (now known as 1 Hotel South Beach) and the Renaissance Times Square in Manhattan, among other projects in the U.S. and Canada. Designed to be a “modern-minimalist environmentally green home,” the listing notes that it has a “10 KW photovoltaic solar system” that is used to generate the home’s electricity. There’s also a geothermal system for heating and cooling.
