    Description

    Well off the beaten path at the end of a private lane, lies a world-class retreat that is a world unto itself. Part of the Essex scene, yet set apart. Enter a domain of solitude, peace and understated elegance. Custom crafted by one the area's finest builders, 10 Benson Lane is a testament to careful planning and artful execution. The main house, offering four to five bedrooms and five full baths plus powder room and a three car garage, includes a first floor bedroom and elevator. This feature rich 5,700SF home was constructed in 2007. 10 Benson Lane is comprised of 2.05 acres of direct water frontage on South Cove, with unparalleled views, a dock and waterside pool. 8 Benson Lane, a 1,782SF two bedroom, two bath guest house with three car garage set on an adjacent 1.45 acre lot is included in this sale. Assessments, taxes, acreage and square footage stated here represent a combination of the two properties. While on separate building lots, 8 and 10 Benson Lane will be sold together only. This is a rare offering for the Essex area. Within walking distance via sidewalk from Essex village shops, restaurants, yacht clubs, marinas, the 1776 Griswold Inn and the CT River Museum. Located just halfway between New York City and Boston, with each just a little over two hours away via car or train. Enjoy coastal New England living at it's best. Call for either a virtual or in-person tour. First time offered! Truly irreplaceable.
