The Bela Comstock Homestead commands a prominent Prospect Hill location overlooking Essex Village. The stately and historic 1852 residence was intentionally aligned with Main Street signifying the familys prestige in the 19th century. A cobblestone driveway leads to the 1.3 acre estate which, at one time, included a bakehouse, stables and other outbuildings. Stone walls outline the parcel and provide a starting point to reclaim the plantings and gardens. A hidden courtyard and a substantial screen patio both insure views and enjoyment of the outside spaces. The 3,290 SF, four bedroom, 3 1/2 bath home features chestnut and wide pine flooring, multiple fireplaces and original details. Additionally included is a two story in-law apartment with separate entrance. Become the next steward of this homestead and guide the restoration to its original grandeur. The Nature Conservancy named the Lower Connecticut River Valley one of the 40 Last Great Places.
