Windsong, a magnificent Waterfront Estate, is set at the end of a private cul de sac with 260 ft. of elevated frontage abreast the scenic CT River. The property is located in an exclusive enclave of Deep River near the charming village of Essex. Linden trees and boxwood hedgerows frame the cobblestone entry reminiscent of the 18th Century Chateaux of the Loire Valley. Set on nearly four manicured acres, the residence is surrounded by formal gardens, antique statuary and flowering pear trees, set in the classic allee style. The original home was built in the late 1940's by Jerome Zerbe, the colorful society editor of Vanity Fair at the time. Zerbe became both friend and photographer to movie stars and luminaries of the era, many of whom visited his beloved Windsong. In 1999 the current owners set about an extensive remodeling and renovation, adding a full second story and deep water dock, along with improvements to the 2200 sq.ft 2BR/1BA carriage house and heated pool. Both radiant floor and hyro air HVAC heating and air conditioning. The impeccable grounds are bolstered and protected by a security system, irrigation system, generator and exterior lighting. Western facing views provide magical summer sunsets over the peaceful riverfront setting.
