    Description

    Simply one the most exquisite and admired waterview homes in Essex village. The romance of a storied seafaring history lingers in the air as you stroll down Main Street. Since 1815 the Dr. Ezra Mather house has offered a commanding view of the CT River and the cove where now lies a picturesque marina. Your time to enjoy that view is here! First time offered in 25 years. The most recent occupants have lavished attention on what is a signature Essex property. Every inch of the house and grounds speak to the love and respect shown this property over decades of ownership. To say "well maintained" would be an understatement. A contiguous buildable .39 acre lot is part of this offering and affords access to Pratt Street, directly across from the marina. Freshly painted inside and out, this house will enchant you. At once captivating and quietly elegant with a charm only time can create. Subtle Chinese Chippendale details on the rear staircase are a reminder of the travels of early occupants of this Federal style home. Five fireplaces and gleaming wideboard flooring throughout. The modern kitchen opens to one the most well-designed secret gardens in town, with magnificent terrace and landscaping. Separate artist's studio/office attached to the rear of the garage. An additional office is integral to the master suite. Steps to village shops, restaurants, yacht clubs, marinas, the c.1776 Griswold Inn and CT River Museum. Just a little over two hours to NYC and Boston.
