Sweeping views overlooking the Green Mountains of Vermont, with open fields to the east and woods to the west, this large Victorian circa 1886, with its classic wraparound porch and large turret, featuring third-floor rooms with views of the lake, is being offered for the first time ever on the market. The house has undergone several updates, including a wing that now serves as the kitchen, complete with a large walk-in pantry. Many of the original features are still intact, including two fireplaces, a beautiful wood staircase, and hardwood floors throughout (under the carpet).

The primary bedroom and Bedroom #2 boast large walk-in closets, and the main bathroom has been updated to include a large soaking tub. The third floor features a large turret with expansive views, perfect for a studio or home office space.

The beautiful rolling 11.3 acres are adorned with several old stone walls, a lovely pond, and a small structure that once served as an ice house and a large a two-car garage with extra storage space. The property is located on a seldom-traveled dirt road only two miles from the historic hamlet of Essex, New York, with its restaurants, shops, and ferry to Vermont. A short distance away are hiking and skiing opportunities in the Adirondack Mountains, and you can enjoy the extensive walking trails offered by the Champlain Area Trails. Nearby Willsboro, just a 5-mile drive, offers many services including grocery store, health services, a bank, hardware store and library.

Located a short drive to Willsboro’s public beach, close to two full-service marinas with seasonal restaurants and a state boat launch site. Additional amenities the town offers, includes pickleball courts, tennis courts, and a public golf course. Close to Lake Placid for hiking and skiing, a short drive to the ferry to Vermont, just 4 hours to Boston, 2 1/2 to Albany, and 90 miles to Montreal, Canada.
