Description

The Samuel Bushnell Barn c.1851, is hands-down one of the most iconic properties in Essex Village. Beloved for it's charm and bucolic setting in the heart of the village. Few residents or visitors can resist a smile when passing by this homage to a more pastoral time in Essex. Artfully reimagined as a residence in 1985, the kitchen was voted "Best Small Kitchen in America", the same year Essex was voted "Best Small Town in America". The family room retains original hemlock flooring, offers a woodburning fireplace, two-story windows and beams that soar to the third level. The primary suite is adjacent to the family room, and accessed through French doors. Hand-painted Americana artwork adorns the walls of the dining room, once the domain of cows. The upper level loft is both cozy and spacious. It affords a warm space to reflect and read a book, while a glance in any direction reveals beams, spacious windows, a vaulted ceiling and the grand family room below. A guest bedroom suite shares the upper level. A short walk to the end of the lane takes you to multiple marinas and restaurants. Turn left to follow North Main Street one block to Main Street shops, more restaurants, yacht clubs, the CT River Museum and the town park. Essex evokes the otherworldly waterfront character and charm of an off-shore island, without the long commute. Just two hours from NYC and Boston, but a world apart. Live your Essex dream here. Live inspired! Total square footage is 2,432 SF, including 828 SF in the walk-out lower level living space.
