Years ago I purchased this house in Old Saybrook because my father and I were to live here. My Dad had a fondness for Katherine Hepburn, who lived down the road in Fenwick, and so I purchased and remodeled this home for us. Now that that generation has passed on, I am able to enjoy the 'Kate' Art space in Old Saybrook, and I have this marvelous home which I live in for part of the year.
Our family has always lived near the Long Island Sound in Connecticut. My name is Chris-'Thopher' and I am only one of the many family members who love this home. My cousins and I live here for part of the summer, and they help me to manage the property while I live with them for part of the year. I consider myself a bit of a nomadic traveler. I live part of the year in Seattle, Washington, part of the year in Old Saybrook and sometimes in Upstate New York. I am the Faux Pas for my cousin's 3 children and one grand-daughter, while I am in Seattle. My grand-daughter (that's her!) fondly refers to me as 'Garanpa Buhhda'.
I am a retired professional, who now enjoys travel, family gatherings, and time in the Adirondacks. I have set up my home as a center for family gatherings, quests, visits, and professional relaxation. By this, I mean that not all travel can be time off from work so the house allows for quiet work time as well as holiday travel.
I have a wonder-filled life. I love to share my home with guests who have all enjoyed what I have set out to create here in Old Saybrook, CT.
Bio- If you will;
I am a retired Chemist. Born and raised in Trumbull, Connecticut to parents who were both teachers. I love education, so I have a good share of that sort of thing. I studied at U-Conn and McGill, in Montreal, where I studied and taught. I then worked in England for one year.
I returned to Connecticut to work here, and lived for many years in Old Lyme, CT. In 1999, I decided to purchase the home along the Connecticut shore line as a destination for friends and family.
Beth-Anne Lye purchased this house in 2001
This property has good KARMA.
Again, this house was purchased so my Dad and I could have a shared home together. He loved this area. It was exciting to live near Katherine Hepburn, who lived down the way. Now there is this beautiful retreat to share. I am a person who has the good fortune to have a wonderful family around me -- a place for you and your family to share the quiet moments found uniquely at the beach, or on an adventure to New York City, Boston, or one of hundreds of Connecticut destinations, which include both historic locations and casinos - all less than 2 hours from the house.
The coast, and this neighborhood in particular, is very warm and inviting. There are gatherings in the summer at the beach were I have danced with other guests and owners who, I may not even know, but who are here for the summer. I have always felt welcomed, enjoying the warmth of the people of this area.
HOT TUB. Private Gazebo on a beautiful deck. Boat launch, Estuary, Good KARMA, Lots of comfortable places to relax, play, and frolic. Bocchi and Crochette in our huge yard adjacent to the house [we own 3 lots] all available here for your enjoyment...
