Every inch of this gracious in-town country estate is magnificent. A blend of formal entertaining and cozy private haven that is casual and comfortable. Completely renovated to the nth degree and styled with symmetry, proportion, and functionality. Bold details, flawless moldings and cornices. Light pours into the expansive open kitchen/family room from the floor-to-ceiling windows and glass doors. The modern master suite with its own private balcony shares the sprawling second floor with 4 grand bedrooms and a highly efficient laundry room, complete with two washers & dryers. On the third floor, accessible via elevator, you will find an open recreation area, full bath, and 2 guest bedrooms. The contemporary heated saltwater pool stretches out next to an extraordinary outdoor covered gourmet kitchen, equipped with a Mugnaini wood-fired pizza oven. An outdoor half bath and shower are located poolside for convenience. Also sharing the patio are custom raised garden beds with a watering system to maintain thriving plants, as well as a garden shed. The large 3-story barn offers endless possibilities. Incredible in-town location, just a short walk or ride to the happenings of downtown Essex. Essex is the epitome of iconic classic New England - stone walls, pristine storybook antique homes, boutique shopping, restaurants that offer a wide variety of cuisines, boating, hiking trails, art galleries, and historic home museums that display the town’s heritage.
