A long, crushed stone driveway leads to this updated Cape Cod reproduction quietly tucked away in a lofty corner of Essex Village, an easy stroll to all services of the village including the yacht clubs, shops, and restaurants. Featured inside is a dramatic, vaulted Great Room with stunning floor to ceiling brick fireplace, sunlit bay, skylight, wide pine boards finished to a warm patina, hand hewn beams and paneling. This is the heart of the home where all will linger. The kitchen boasts brick floors and opens to this living space, making this a great place for entertaining. Completing the ground floor are a bedroom with built-ins, a full bath and a paneled study. On the upper level there is vaulted beam ceiling bedroom with wide pine boards and loft overlooking the Great Room. In addition to the loft bedroom there is another large bedroom with full bath accessed from the spiral staircase in the Study. Stone walls, split rail fencing, a brick patio and garage are highlights of the property. Essex, a town rich in maritime history, is conveniently located mid way between New York and Boston via Interstate 95 and has good rail service.
