The location alone will take your breath away! A private drive leads past golden hayfields
and green meadows to a home crowned by gleaming water views of South Cove, Essex
Harbor, CT River & Village of Essex. Direct waterfront 18th Century
Gambrel reproduction offers the charm & detail of an antique
home. The site offers unequaled privacy within a few minutes walk to the Village.
Set on 9+ acres of pristine land with approximately 475 feet of frontage on South Cove. In the past
this property has had a floating dock to accommodate shallow draft boats, kayaks
& canoes. Inside & out, this home is a celebration of its natural surroundings
