About 12 Racketts Lane

Sited on an exquisitely landscaped 1.5 acre parcel in the Village of Essex, this Circa 1853 residence exudes elegance throughout and has been carefully renovated, focusing on the integrity of the original structure while incorporating all modern amenities for carefree living. Professionally landscaped featuring a lawn sweeping down to a picturesque pond with stone bulkhead, and a stunning Gunite pool set immediately off the sunroom of the house, a blue stone terrace encompasses the entire West fa?ade, creating an ideal space for outdoor living and entertaining…and included with the property is a significant deeded 25 foot right of way leading to idyllic Middle Cove. The interior of the residence features a fabulous living room with fireplace and French doors opening to the exterior terrace, a formal dining room, and an incredible Chef’s kitchen with island seating as well as a cozy banquette for casual dining. The primary suite is secluded in its own wing from the other two bedrooms, each with ensuite bath, and was designed with a unique vaulted ceiling and French doors that lead to an intimate balcony overlooking the custom gardens. Architectural plans are available and permitting complete for the construction of a separate guest house on the opposite side of the pond, if you require a multi-generational Village estate! Simply stunning!
