Pristine and private antique colonial on idyllic nine-acre setting on Chebacco Lake. This First Period saltbox, built in 1684 by David Burnham of the Essex ship building family, has been lovingly restored and reborn as an elegant country retreat offering multiple options for living, income and recreation. The home’s distinctive design—diamond pane casement windows, massive central chimney, tall cedar shingle roof and cedar siding—instantly transports you to a time when this nation was young, while the surrounding landscape and grounds, with carefully nurtured English gardens and lawns sweeping down to the lake and forest, are utterly enchanting.
