Here’s a historic, recently renovated village Victorian on the market for $890,000 in Essex, Connecticut that would make for a classic country retreat. Built in 1899, the four-bedroom, 3,000-square-foot home preserves many original details including an intricately handcrafted staircase, covered porches, and foyer.

The spacious home, which sits on a half-acre plot of verdant land just steps away from the North Cove, with water-views to it and the Connecticut River, offers great opportunities for leisure and entertaining in its formal living and dining rooms, a barrel-vaulted great room, and completely updated eat-in kitchen. Plenty of built-ins, oversized windows, an office, and woodshop round out the promising property. Have a look around.
