Welcome to the Hezekiah Pratt Homestead, circa 1733, one of the oldest documented homes in Essex, sited perfectly on an expansive parcel of land on the West side of the much sought after River Road area, with seasonal water views of the Connecticut River and in close proximity to the Village of Essex. Lovely stone walls and traditional fencing surround this residence with beautifully landscaped gardens and mature specimen trees offer space to gather with family and friends. This home’s interior pays tribute to its history while giving a nod to modern amenities. A new addition includes a two bay attached garage, lovely remodeled kitchen with separate pantry and a convenient powder room. The first level also incorporates a beautiful living room with fireplace, a cozy den also with fireplace, and a primary bedroom with ensuite bath and warming fireplace. On the charming second level a “good morning” staircase separates two bedrooms and a large family room, all with original wide board flooring. This is a rare opportunity to become the newest steward of a stunning residence with incredible historical significance.
