Just off River Road, a circular driveway leads to an Essex gem. To the left of the entry hall, through custom French doors, is a newly renovated library/den complete with wood burning fireplace and custom cabinets. The large living room features a propane fireplace and a wet bar. One wall of the dining room consists of French doors that open to the lush backyard. From the dining room, step into the large kitchen complete with granite countertops, wall ovens, a gas countertop range, two dishwashers and an 8-foot stone island. A separate area in the kitchen features a desk, more granite countertop space, and a second sink. There is an attached two-car garage with cabinet storage space. The upstairs master bedroom suite is amazing, with a full bath, laundry room, walk-in closet and a large office/family room. Also upstairs are three more bedrooms and a full bath with a soapstone counter and Travertine tile floor. All baths are newly renovated. The basement is finished. Mechanicals include a state of the art water treatment system and a whole house generator. Central air, septic, roof, water heater and electric pet fence are all new. Outside, the grounds are park-like, with trees, perennial plantings, stonewalls, and a storage shed. This is a must-see house.
