About 30 Main Street

This exquisite waterfront home is located in the heart of the historic village of Essex, and is a short walk to the iconic Griswold Inn, the Connecticut River Museum, yacht clubs, marinas, neighborhood restaurants, and upscale shops. This landmark home, built in the Greek Revival architectural style, is set back from the street on a beautifully landscaped lot surrounded by custom fencing with electronically gated entry. The impeccably restored residence offers a spacious, light-filled interior and abundant amenities for today’s living. The front foyer opens to the well-appointed living room with custom bookcases, coffered ceiling, ample lighting, gas fireplace, and floor-to ceiling-windows with custom interior shutters. The formal dining room with custom cabinetry provides a warm and intimate setting for entertaining. The open-concept family room and professionally appointed chef’s kitchen feature custom cabinetry, bookcases, window seats, and the home’s original wood-burning fireplace with granite surround. Gracious French doors lead to a large, granite terrace. The stunning kitchen is equipped with granite countertops, an island for casual dining, two Sub-Zero refrigerators, a Viking range, a farmhouse sink, a wet bar, and French fixtures. The large powder room and sunroom with antique granite floor complete the main floor. Just outside the sunroom, a “secret garden” features a bluestone terrace, exquisite plantings, a fountain, and an area for gas grilling. From the home’s main floor, an elevator provides access to the lower level with its 1,000-bottle wine cellar, cigar humidor, and wine-tasting area featuring flooring of hand-thrown Mexican terracotta tile. Access to the home’s upper level is via the elevator or the home’s elegant staircase. Here, the master suite has a sitting area with a built-in desk, ample closets and access via French doors to a deck overlooking Middle Cove on the Connecticut River. The en-suite master bath features a large shower with multiple showerheads, a soaking/whirlpool tub, and a heated towel rack. Two additional bedrooms, one with a gas fireplace and each with en-suite baths, complete the upper level. The three-car carriage house contains a finished second level, with heat and air conditioning, including a bathroom with granite shower and a kitchenette. The space is perfect for use as a separate guesthouse or office. The charming boathouse features a slate floor and countertop, copper sink, wine refrigerator, and screened French doors. The boathouse overlooks a gracious, sloping lawn that leads to a private bulkhead with an electronically controlled davit system on Middle Cove. Two separate septic systems, security system, whole house stand-by generator, top of the line HVAC, and ten-zone irrigation system make up the mechanicals of this very special home.
