"Pond House" is a true paradise found! This storybook brick and clapboard-sided waterfront cape with slate roof and copper gutters is the perfect escape from anywhere. The original "cottage" on Heron Pond, built in 1940, had major renovations performed in both 2007 and 2020. One-floor living is made easy on two of the three levels. The first floor master suite is adjacent to a spacious office. Both have vaulted ceilings. The master suite contains a walk-in closet, attic access to a large finished storage area with built-ins and a very impressive master bath featuring a soaking tub, walk-in shower, dual sinks and laundry. Hardwood floors throughout. A 1,000SF lower level in-law apartment has it's own separate ground-level entrance and contains a fireplace, media/fitness/family room, kitchenette, breakfast area and spacious updated full bath with walk-in shower. Recent additions include beautiful bluestone terraces, a heated pool with spa, and stand-by generator. You CAN have it all. The lush private lot with dock on Heron Pond is adjacent to an Essex Land Trust conservation area which encompasses 21 acres of woodland and nature trails. Located less than a mile from the head of Main Street and Essex village restaurants, banks, shops, marinas, yacht clubs, tennis courts, library, the Griswold Inn and CT River museum. Just two hours to NYC or Boston by car or rail. This peaceful setting is just right if you're looking to leave the world behind and relax in comfort and style.
