1224 5 N Route || $3,700,000 || Sold



A dramatic architectural landmark combining a unique and spectacular site, modern aesthetic design principles and innovative technical execution, the 6390 square foot River House in Norwich, Vermont presents a unique opportunity for the next owner to experience life at a singular level. Minutes from the cultural hub of Hanover, New Hampshire, home to the renowned Ivy League Dartmouth College, and two hours to Boston's Back Bay, River House is within an hour's drive of an array of world class recreational, cultural and entertainment attractions. Sited on a peninsula exactly eighty feet above the Connecticut River and boasting a 180-degree vantage point with long range water views both north and south, the house and its outbuilding are constructed entirely of concrete. This raw, versatile material makes up both the exterior and interior surfaces of the home and the dramatic views from the main living spaces are achieved through a flip of the traditional floor plan with the main living quarters on the second floor. Soaring 14 foot high interior spaces in the main living room open directly to the exterior and the stackable glass doors that run both the entire north and south walls blurring the visual boundary between indoors and out.
