Described as "one of the best houses in Essex,” this property combines architectural simplicity and sophistication set on magical waterfront acreage. Rebuilt in 2011, “River’s Edge” is nestled among stately sugar maples with sweeping views overlooking North Cove and the Connecticut River beyond. Lauded by artists, the unusual light of the River Valley offers crimson sunrises and pastel sunsets. French doors throughout meld an elegant interior with outdoor living, cooled by river breezes on the airy screened porch and wide granite terrace overlooking the deep-water dock. Stepping inside, a large entry hall introduces sparkling water views. The gracious living room, with a wood-burning fireplace, detailed mill work and high ceilings, offers a three-sided panorama of the River with its wide variety of waterfowl and soaring eagles. The jewel box dining room features Venetian plaster walls and hidden kitchen access. An oversized Chef’s kitchen expands into a family room with fireplace and a small office off to the side. The library has a full bath, fireplace, and French doors. Upstairs, the spacious Master suite has a fireplace and 270-degree water vista. Its walk-in closet is large enough to serve as an extra bedroom! Across the hall are two sunny en-suite guest rooms and a cozy study. An unfinished living area above the attached garage is ready to become an apartment or guest suite. This peerless property is a short stroll to Essex Village’s charming shops and restaurants.
