There is a guest suite with a private entrance on the second floor. The primary en suite bedroom on the main floor includes a spacious seating area, a wood-burning fireplace, a sauna and steam shower.
An en suite bedroom on the second floor, which mimics the massive great room on the main level in terms of ceiling height and floor space, is quite out of proportion with the other bedrooms, which are much smaller and seem cramped in comparison.

This home is a five-minute drive from Essex Village and a few miles from a nature preserve, balancing town and country.
The kitchen is small and there isn’t much separation between the eating and living spaces. Storage is rather limited. The long stairway to the front door may be challenging for some.
