One of the cherished homes on historic Main Street in Essex, CT is for sale.

Here is a property that I have personally admired from the outside during a visit to Essex, Connecticut.  When I saw that it was for sale, I wanted to share this property with others who might be looking for a a wonderful historic home in a seaside village.

Things that make a home special and feel welcoming are the small details and accessories such as this collection of silver and glass shakers.

Who would mind washing dishes at this sink with this view? Not me, that's for sure. Notice another small detail on the sink base to make it look more like a piece of furniture than a standard cabinet.
