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.
Please note, unless otherwise noted, the photos in this real estate post are from the Realtor's listing for this property.
This beautiful home, located at 24 Main Street in Essex, CT, was also featured in our fall/holiday 2017 issue to help promote a holiday house tour that showcased seven homes in Essex Village.
Built in 1850, this Essex Village property is a local landmark.
The property has recently undergone a major top to bottom renovation with an addition by renowned S.D.Hallahan Housewright.
The renovation is a perfect blend of both antique and modern materials.
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.
Now here is a porch perfect for relaxing AND entertaining. The light fixtures add to the visual presentation of this outdoor seating space.
This historic home is located on an amazing waterfront lot with sweeping lawn to the watersedge on Middle Cove.
Here is some highlight information from the real estate listing.
Upon entering the front foyer of this 1850 Antique home you experience the simple elegance of a bygone era.
The gorgeous living room with fireplace, bay window, builtins and a comfortable family room with fp, are accessed from the front foyer.
Floor to ceiling french doors lead to the stunning new Gourmet kitchen and dining room both with spectacular views of the water.
The kitchen is a chef's delight including state of the art Miele appliances,statuary marble countertops,an immense island and antique wideboard floors.
Off the kitchen is a wonderful mudroom and separate laundry room.
A grand covered porch is an ideal outdoor room for entertaining and admiring the beautifully landscaped, rolling lawn and waterfront.
The 2nd floor Master Bedroom Suite has spectacular waterviews and a magnificent master bath. Also on the upper level are two additional bedrooms and a bath.
The walkout lower level has a second family room and a spacious rec room and workshop. An exclusive opportunity to live in Historic Essex Village, a truly quintessential New England Connecticut River town!
