Blue Sky Farm, with its vivid red barn and shingled farmhouse, is a classic New England salt farm and an iconic property in the Essex landscape. Set on 17.64± acres just south of the Village, the Farm includes 658± feet of frontage on the main channel of the Essex River with a fully-licensed boardwalk and dock. The landscape includes a mix of salt marsh, fenced pasture, sweeping lawn and cedar woodlands situated above the Great Marsh. Accessed via a long private drive, the residence is a 2010 Davis Timber Frame farm house that takes full advantage of the bucolic setting and unspoiled views of the Essex River basin and Cogswell’s Grant. The three-bedroom house features an open layout with oversized windows and doors almost always open to welcome breezes from the wrap-around porch and patios. The property also includes a detached Maine Barn Co. Timber Frame barn with a central bay, two large stalls, a heated tack room, full bath and loft; a detached two-bay garage with tractor shed, an Amish-built two-bay run in with tack room and a chicken coop. A conservation restriction on 13.28± acres ensures that this special place will remain protected. Imagine a property where you can keep your horse, tend vegetables and head out to the ocean on your boat in search of striped bass!
