Essex cottage description

Located in the quintessential historic New England village of Essex, voted Best Small Town in America, this sunny, upscale cottage is tucked in next to world class, exclusive yacht clubs, historic inns, restaurants, boutique shopping, antiques and art galleries, and the finest, quaint nautical atmosphere New England has to offer.

This is a new (2012) vacation/short term rental -- furnishings, kitchen appliances, dinner and glassware... Several lovely antique pieces add to the New England coastal cottage charm. Bed linens, towels, down pillows - everything is luxury - new comfy plush top beds with down duvets invite blissful sleep and lazy mornings. Skylights and glass sliders bring the outside in - watch the boats and listen to the gulls cry as you sip your coffee while planning your day.

Fully fenced private yard to welcome the entire family - 2 legged and 4 legged! The Village of Essex is known for being wonderfully dog-friendly and a very special, picturesque walking destination.

The Cottage is 1000 sf, new plush pillowtop queen bed in master, writing desk & desk chair, 2 closets, 32-in flat screen tvs in the bedrooms and the living room, wireless throughout the house, full size pottery barn white slip covered sofa and 2 white slipcovered club chairs in living room, cafe table and 2 chairs in breakfast nook, oval antique English pine dining table with 6 full size white Italian leather chairs in dining area, antique English country pine hutch, small kitchen with gas stove, new frig, all new housewares/dishes/glassware/utensils, marble top full size french counter, all windows/glass sliders out to good size field stone walled patio, fenced yard, water view, 1 car garage and parking for 2 add'l cars in small driveway. There is a wood burning fireplace, window air conditioning units throughout house plus box fans, gas grill, beach toys/coolers. Full bath attached to master bedroom, master bedroom has lots of built in storage, closet space and bath has tons of storage as well, full stacked washer & dryer, 2nd bedroom is smaller but has plush pillowtop full-size/double bed, dresser, cable tv, another full size bath (shower no tub) is outside this bedroom's door and this little 'wing' can be closed off from the rest of the house for additional privacy if desired.....Note that the Cottage will comfortably sleep 4 adults in 2 bedrooms - 1 with Queen bed and the other with Full bed. The listing has '4-6' as occupants as there may be room for 2 small children on pillowtop aerobed mattress and the living room sofa. I would not recommend more than 4 'full-size' adults for the number of adults to be truly comfortable

The house has skylights over the entire living room and with the glass sliders and skylights, it is amazingly bright and sunny - with the sliders open you totally bring the outdoors in! The decor is high end 'coastal' with light colored antique European country pine, white slipcovers, shades of blue, original watercolor art on the walls.....very serene and relaxing but right in the center of it all! The CT River Museum is right around the corner.....

It is furnished, again, with Sferra, Peacock Alley, Pinecone Hill, Horchow, Restoration Hardware, Crate & Barrel, Pottery Barn -- this is not a typical vacation rental by any means........

Email is preferred contact and will be responded to very quickly.
