The charming river town of Essex is one of Connecticut’s most desirable communities, with the bestselling travel guide book “1,000 Places to See Before You Die” naming the town “The Perfect Small American Town” and placing it at number one on the list of “The 100 Best Small Towns in America.” Enjoying a scenic location along the Connecticut River, Essex is known for its quintessentially New England atmosphere. The town’s most highly regarded neighborhood, Foxboro Road, has been considered Essex’s most prestigious residential address for over 100 years, sought after by buyers in the Connecticut Shoreline real estate market. Now, a unique opportunity has become available to purchase an undeveloped parcel of land in the Foxboro area, right alongside the lovely Connecticut River.
For the very first time, five generously sized building lots on Foxboro Road have come to the market through William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty, with one already sold. At the same time, a sixth property that features a historic clapboard house originally constructed in 1870 is also available. The six properties are subdivided from one of the last large undeveloped private tracts in Essex along the river, all benefiting from a truly stunning location, one of the most beautiful on the entire river shoreline. Foxboro Point is the site of the properties, a gorgeous peninsula that offers breathtaking views sweeping across the river and encompassing North Cove and Lyme Hills. Each of the five building lots, ranging from 1.4 to 1.89 acres and offered from $1,250,000 to $1,600,000, offers an ideal place to construct a classic home that offers every modern convenience, with site plans meticulously designed to ensure that homeowners will be provided with superb open vistas. The sixth property, offered at $1,995,000, also boasts waterfront access and views in addition to a home with double columns along the full length of its open porch, eight-foot tall windows, a widow’s walk and original carriage house.
The privately sited properties are within easy walking distance of the Village of Essex, where the town’s historic architecture, antique shopping and fine restaurants can all be explored. Essex offers a number of historic attractions, including the Connecticut River Museum and the 1776 Griswold Inn, as well as boating activities from the marinas and a beautiful natural setting with plentiful wildlife for outdoor enthusiasts. These parcels provide an exceptionally rare chance to experience an idyllic lifestyle in a premier location.
