Essex, CT, US
28 Mallard Point Road
A very special waterfront property welcomes you with open arms. Set on 1.4 acres of land with over 255 feet of frontage on beautiful South Cove, this home begs to be filled with guests gathered round the kitchen island, celebrating in the Great Room, or relaxing on the covered waterside porch. A fully permitted dock allows for leisurely sunset cruises, fishing at dawn or paddle boarding in the afternoons. From the moment you enter, the panoramic vistas from large stationary glass panels and banks of windows and bays light up the rooms. The Great Room hosts multiple seating areas, custom made built-ins and a wood burning fireplace. In a tribute to Essex's nautical heritage, a mahogany wet bar is perfect for entertaining. Sparkling occasions are easily enjoyed in the intimate dining room and the chef's kitchen makes preparing meals a joy. On the upper level, wake up and greet the rising sun from the master suite. An all season porch with built-in bookcases beckons you to curl up, read or simply dream. In cooler weather, the den offers a cozy respite. Three additional bedrooms and two full baths complete the second story. Mallard Point is close to the yacht clubs, restaurants and shops of Essex Village and the services, including railroads, of Old Saybrook. This is the best of shoreline living in one of America's best small towns.
