Prominent Waterfront Home In Essex Village

"Watched the sun come up this morning. Red orb rising in front of the house, then bursting into light and warmth across the water". Take a comfortable seat at the screened porch or adjacent stone patio and congratulate yourself on making that view yours! An aura of casual elegance permeates this singular waterfront Essex property, both inside and out. A long drive leads to an understated yet stately 5, 282 SF c.1938 Cape reimagined, expanded and remodeled in 2011. The interior architectural details are both quiet and attention-grabbing at once. Dark oak floors are a counterpoint for handsome millwork, built-ins, bookcases, French doors, and fireplaces. The kitchen does not disappoint. A Thermador cooktop and stainless appliances anchor custom cabinetry, marble countertops, and abundant storage space. In 2021 an exquisite, sunny 700 SF office/studio space was added as a separate wing accessed via a private staircase. Recent exterior improvements include a new bulkhead along North Cove and new decking on the deep water dock. An 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 sense of stillness and calm at this property is soothing and inspiring. Live inspired!
