Living on the waterfront is the ultimate dream for many home-owners. But living by the water in a windmill hitches that dream up a few notches. Sotheby’s Realty is featuring this Essex, Connecticut windmill home with a wrap-around porch that makes it easy to soak in the full beauty of the nearby river. If you’ve got the $1.85 million to spare, the Windmill at Foxworth Point could be your family’s new sanctuary.
Originally built in 1967, the windmill underwent a gorgeous renovation into a three bedroom, one bathroom abode. With 840 square feet of living space over three ascending levels, there is just enough space for this gem to fall just outside the “tiny house” category. The first floor living room is bright and inviting, thanks to its beachy-blue accents and a wet bar just begging to be used for entertaining guests. Up the staircase are two bedrooms, one of which has ladder access to the attic loft and its cozy, compact daybeds.
The most stunning feature is likely the 360 degree view of the surrounding Connecticut River and marshlands from the wrap-around porch. It’s difficult to imagine a more tranquil getaway than one which allows inhabitants to observe the local birds and listen to the gentle flow of the river while nestled on the porch.
