Gracious, Private Estate Just Minutes from Village
A gracious private estate set on an unusually spacious two-acre level lot just minutes from Essex village shops, restaurants, marinas, yacht clubs, the c.1776 Griswold Inn, CT River Museum, and the CT River! Retreat to a world of quiet elegance with a touch of European panache. The sprawling chef's kitchen features its own pasta station, a butler's pantry, wine chiller, island, and a casual dining area surrounded by bay windows. A fireplace anchors the adjacent great room gathering space. Gleaming walnut flooring is found throughout the main level. The formal dining room has soaring ceilings and will easily accommodate a dozen diners or more. A generous master suite with a vaulted ceiling on the first floor with its own office/fitness room allows the opportunity for one-floor living. Upstairs you will find three bedrooms, two full baths, and a common area media room. A separate two-bedroom one-bath apartment with a living area and kitchenette above the three-car garage offers plenty of room for in-laws, guests or teenage paradise. A huge game room occupies the lower level. The professionally landscaped outdoor space here is every bit as grand as the interior of the home. A substantial stone courtyard terrace is the perfect outdoor gathering place. Close-by lies the pool, a fire pit and a barn suitable for use as a pool house. Located just over two hours from New York or Boston via train or highway. Enjoy the best of the CT Shoreline from one of the best properties in Essex.
