On the banks of the scenic Falls River, where the 75 acre Mill Pond flows into the river, rests this historic gem. The waterfront property is ideal for kayaking, trout and bass fishing, paddle boarding and in winter ice skating parties. While parts of the structure hail from 1767, the Essex Historical Society dates the home to 1832 from one of the town's leading members, William Dennison, with subsequent additions in the 1940's and 2000. Today the home combines the bespoke elements of its provenance with the functionality for today's living style. The rich patina of the original fireplaces, beams and paneling marry well with the open airy floor plan punctuated by banks of windows and glass doors that lead to the sweeping lawns, in ground pool and waterfront. A wooden footbridge leads to your own private island, a favorite place to enjoy this pristine body of water. A first floor master suite added in 2000 and overlooking the pond is a serene place to relax and allows for one floor living. Lovingly restored, the present owner used spray foam insulation and replaced the clapboards with Hardie Board siding for low maintenance and energy efficiency, updated mechanicals including central air, and remodeled baths and kitchen. Walk to the restaurants, park and services from this central location. Enjoy the charm and warmth of an historic house and the conveniences of today. Simply magical!
