Property Description

Escape to the Upper West Side...of Essex CT, the Best Small Town in America! The perfect compound for these times, or any time. Fabulous recently restored c.1801 Bejamin Post house offers a detached office/fitness studio, heated in-ground gunite pool, multiple terraces and a light-filled four season sun room with stone floor, wood ceiling, wet bar and wine chiller. This is far from a cookie-cutter Colonial. Gleaming rich walnut-stained hardwood flooring throughout, bookcases in both the first floor office/study and library. Gas fireplace in the family room and a wood-burning fireplace located in the adjacent living room. A vintage home with a strong hint of sophisticated contemporary flair. Luxe touches in the new kitchen with vaulted ceiling and stainless propane range and hood. Marble-appointed baths. Two guest bedrooms share a spacious study. The master suite has it's own sitting area and new full bath ensuite. New mechanical systems include gas forced air heating, central air conditioning, propane on-demand hot water and a whole-house standby generator. Treat yourself outdoors to a spa-like experience, with a newly refinished heated gunite pool set on a spacious professionally landscaped .48 acre level lot just minutes from Essex village shops, restaurants, marinas, yacht clubs, the CT River Museum, c.1776 Griswold Inn and the CT River. This a dream-like village setting just two hours from NYC and Boston. The perfect get-a-way or year-round escape from life's pressures.
