Down a quiet lane, just a short walk from Main Street in Essex Village, is a wonderful contemporary waterfront home, which enjoys stunning views of North Cove, the Connecticut River and the rolling hills of Old Lyme. The 1.4 acre property has a gently sloping lawn to 180 feet of waterfront and a dock for kayaks and small boats. One of only a handful of waterfront properties in Essex Village which are one plus acres within a short walking distance of the historic Village. The size of the property and the tree lined boundary coupled with the lovely English Gardens have ensured unbelievable privacy. The house was entirely rebuilt and expanded with important architectural enhancements in the early 2000s with spacious rooms throughout all on one level and a very large wrap around patio with easy access for al fresco lunches and dinners. The Great Room view of the water provides ever changing views of the River including eagles, egrets, osprey, herons and other wildlife, boats coming and going plus the rising sun and moon. The kitchen, dining room, sunken living room with traditional fireplace, study, patio and front pergola all partake in the same stunning views. The property size provides the opportunity to further expand the house if desired. This contemporary waterfront home enriched by special architectural features with spectacular views of the Connecticut River and unusual privacy is only a very short walk to the historical Essex Village.
