Description

Robed in history, this Greek Revival influenced home known as “Lord Essex” sits at the top of Evans Lane, constructed in 1857 by Sea Captain Henry Hovey, a famous and heroic Essex mariner. Every inch of this gracious country estate is magnificent, a blend of formal entertaining and a cozy private haven that is casual and comfortable. The details are bold; flawless heavy moldings, cornices, gables, and unadorned friezes. Styled with symmetry, proportion, and functionality. Light pours into the expansive remodeled kitchen from the floor-to-ceiling windows and glass doors. The modern master suite with it’s own private balcony shares the sprawling second floor with 4 other grand bedrooms and a highly efficient laundry room complete with two washers & dryers. On the third floor, accessible via elevator, you’ll find an open common area, a full bath, and two more guest bedrooms. The contemporary heated saltwater pool stretches out next to an extraordinary outdoor covered gourmet kitchen, equipped with a wood-fired pizza oven. Beyond the pool are custom-raised garden beds and a garden shed, the perfect place to flex your creativity. Incredible in-town location, just a short walk or ride to the happenings of downtown Essex. Essex is one of the most iconic New England shoreline villages in the state of CT. Quaint 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.
