Once in a lifetime opportunity to own 87 acres of pristine land in the charming seaside town of Old Lyme - a popular year round and summer destination. Owned by the Griswold family for generations, this idyllic property offers extensive acreage situated atop a hill providing total privacy set in nature, with the ability to create a family estate that includes scenic walking trails, a stream and ponds - all just minutes away from Long Island Sound and the beach. The land abuts permanent town nature preserves to the North, and is the only large parcel of land located in such close proximity to the shore on the market in Old Lyme. The property includes two adjoining parcels located at 28 Ben Franklin which consists of 30 acres of raw land and 32 Ben Franklin which has 57.88 acres of land with a 5302 SQ FT home. The home was originally built in 1926 but has been unoccupied for 22 years and will need to be removed or extensively renovated. The land could be developed as well, due diligence required. A very rare offering!
