A Greek Revival Manse in Essex Lists for $2.1M

Distinguished by its many-columned façade and rooftop widow’s walk overlooking the Connecticut River, a Greek Revival manse in Essex is the picture of 19th-century grandeur. Antique features have been restored throughout the 11-room home. There’s a cherry-wood-paneled library with a fireplace, a master suite with two fireplaces and a sleeping porch, and a kitchen with its original refrigerator and icebox, both of which have been refurbished. Below these main-floor formal rooms, however, the lower level is ready to party. There’s a screening room with surround-sound acoustics, a massive screen and comfy theater-style seats. There’s also a pub room with a coffered ceiling, a fireplace and a pool table. Colette Harron of William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty lists the property for $2.1 million.
