222 Lyons Plain Road, Weston, Connecticut, United States, 06883
October Hill, Weston’s crown jewel, is a magnificent manor home sited on 10.01 idyllic acres with 679 feet of prime river frontage and embraced by 62+ acres of open space.
The original owner, a Swedish diplomat and post-World War II industrialist, custom-crafted this home to elaborate, exacting standards, importing a team of Italian craftsman to quarry and cut on site all the stone used in its masterful construction.
The current owner, a noted designer, again imported a team of superb artisans and lovingly rebuilt and expanded this architecturally significant beauty where Frank Sinatra and Mia Farrow once lived, surpassing those exacting standards.
Owners dedicated themselves over a period of years to restoring and refining October Hill’s noble character and luster, and took great pains to faithfully replicate many original details in its substantial recent addition. The renovation was completed in 2010.
Nostalgic ‘Old Hollywood’ movie theater; enviable billiards lounge; two bar areas; a grand “cafe;” wine cellar; high tech security system;, impressive tiered stone terraces overlooking panoramic landscape artistry; and private access to some of the finest, most scenic trout fishing in the region.
