Godillot Place is a historic country estate at 60 and 65 Jesup Road in Westport, Connecticut. The main house, now known as the Lyman Building, is Stick style structure, built c. 1880 around a core which is an 1804 farmhouse that now makes up the western section. The building has asymmetrical massing characteristic of the late 19th century, with a busy roofline that has projecting gable sections and dormers that have decorative shingling and overlaid Stick woodwork. Across the street from the main house stand a carriage house and barn that date to the time of the major alterations. The design has been attributed to Palliser, Palliser & Co., a New York City architectural pattern book publisher.[2]

The property was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1977.[1]
