Prominent Waterfront Home In Essex Village
Presenting a prominent waterfront home in a sought-after Essex Village setting moments from Main Street shops, restaurants, yacht clubs, and marinas. Privately sited on a gentle rise above North Cove, this home requires no flood insurance. Recent improvements include a new bulkhead along the waterfront and new decking on the deepwater dock. An aura of casual elegance permeates the property, both inside and out. A long drive leads to an understated yet stately 5,282 SF c.1938 Cape reimagined and remodeled in 2011. In 2021 an exquisite, sunny 700 SF office/studio space was added as a separate wing accessed by a private staircase. The artful floor plan affords a seamless balance of open and intimate spaces for ultimate functionality and luxury. Ever-changing panoramic views of the gracious grounds, North Cove, the CT River, hills of Lyme, and a parade of waterfowl, eagles, and osprey are framed by windows at every turn. The spacious screened porch and adjacent bluestone terrace with a firepit are the go-to outdoor hangout spots. Inside, the architectural details are both quiet and attention-grabbing at once. The dark oak floors are a counterpoint for handsome millwork, built-ins, bookcases, french doors, and fireplaces. The kitchen does not disappoint. Thermador cooktop and stainless appliances anchor custom cabinetry, marble countertops, and abundant storage space. The sense of stillness and calm at this property is soothing and inspiring. Live inspired!
