The “James Wheaton House” featured in Volume II of the “Houses of Essex” is an antique colonial farmhouse nestled in a picturesque New England setting on an acre of land. Whether you are looking for a cozy year-round home or a charming part time get-away, here is your chance to live in “the best small town in America”. The sweet sun-filled home retains the character of its c.1902 roots but has been updated mechanically and cosmetically. The classic covered front porch leads to a spacious living room with cherry wood floors and an eat-in country kitchen. A half bath and laundry are located adjacent to the kitchen. On the 2nd floor are 3 bedrooms with wood floors and a full bath. From the spacious kitchen dining area there is a lovely view of the deck and the level back yard with mature plantings and a 18'X16' barn. Ideally located a short drive to either Essex Village or Old Saybrook. Enjoy the Essex historic downtown with shops and restaurants, the Griswold Inn, the CT River Museum, multiple marinas and yacht clubs and the Connecticut River. In Old Saybrook you can access I95 or take the train to NYC or Boston, each about a 2 hour ride. Rt 9 runs up along the Connecticut River making travel to Hartford and points north convenient.
