Essex, CT – An official groundbreaking ceremony was held at the site of the new Essex Glen community in Essex, CT on Thursday, November 3rd, 2016. A new planned unit development (PUD) nestled on a 11 acre picturesque hillside, just off Bokum Road, Essex Glen is conveniently located to shopping, local restaurants and the entrance of Route 9.

After 8 years of planning, the town of Essex and neighborhood residents are enthusiastic about the project and feel that it is a welcomed addition to the community. Essex Glen will have 26 free standing homes that can all be easily customized with a variety of choices of finishes and a menu of options. There are three floor plans to choose from each with a first floor master suite, two car garage, open airy floor plan, gourmet kitchen and quality construction throughout.

“It has been a long time coming to fruition,” stated Maryalice Widness, Realtor® of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New England Properties West Hartford office. “We are very grateful to the many people who have helped guide us through this process to get us to where we are today.”

Essex, Connecticut is the quintessential New England town where you can enjoy cozy restaurants, unique shops, and access local theater at the Ivoryton Playhouse. In-town walking is a breeze with 14 miles of sidewalks, and the antique visuals are a history lover’s dream. Plus, it’s an easy stroll to the historic waterfront where you can watch the sailboats.

“Essex Glen is a significant new development in town,” stated Angela Ruel, Realtor® of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New England Properties Essex office. “The plans look fantastic and individual, low maintenance homes are exactly what people in our area are looking for.
