“1,000 Places to See Before You Die,” the bestselling travel guide, named the charming town of Essex, Connecticut, “The Perfect Small American Town” and ranked it at the top of “The 100 Best Small Towns in America” list. Indeed, Essex is one of the most sought after communities in Connecticut, regarded as a quintessentially New England town and offering a picturesque Connecticut River setting. Foxboro Road, perhaps the most desirable part of town, has for more than a century boasted status as the most prestigious residential area of Essex, and is eagerly explored by buyers on the Connecticut Shoreline market. Now, the Foxboro neighborhood has a rare opportunity for the buyer interested in purchasing a beautiful riverfront property that remains undeveloped.
Five large building lots situated on Foxboro Road have been offered for sale for the very first time, one already having been sold. A sixth lot that includes an original clapboard house built in 1870 is also for sale. Altogether, the six properties have been subdivided from one of Essex’s last large riverfront private tracts that is still undeveloped. Available through William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty, the properties enjoy perhaps the most sublime location along the whole of the Connecticut River. The gorgeous cape of Foxboro Point is the site, providing spectacular views encompassing the river as well as Lyme Hills and North Cove. Offered from $1,250,000 to $1,600,000 and ranging in size from 1.4 to 1.89 acres, each of the five lots makes an excellent location for a classic home that serves the needs of the modern buyer. The site plans are carefully crafted so that buyers are guaranteed beautiful open vistas. Offered at $1,995,000, the sixth property benefits from the same views and waterfront access as the others while also offering a home featuring an open porch with double columns, widow’s walk, eight-foot high windows and carriage house.
The Village of Essex is within walking distance of these private properties. Here, homeowners can indulge in the town’s fine dining and antique shops while exploring historic architecture and attractions such as the 1776 Griswold Inn and the Connecticut River Museum. The town also offers marinas for boating activities and appeals to nature enthusiasts with its stunning natural setting and abundant wildlife. These building lots offer a once-in-a-lifetime chance to experience the best in idyllic living from this exceptional location.
