Showings begin Saturday May 1. In the small constellation of truly remarkable waterfront properties available on the Connecticut River, few so completely achieve the delicate balance between luxury and country practicality while still respecting the history of their unique setting. This custom designed and built 4-bedroom, 5-bathroom main house delivers on the high level of fit and finish for which the master craftsman behind its construction is well-known. The main house, sited to take full advantage of the views down the river, offers a casually elegant approach to country life and was designed to orient windows to the ever-changing beauty of the natural landscape surrounding the property. Multiple outbuildings include the combination guest house, garage and shop which offers extra living space for guests as well as a variety of other uses. An open floorplan centered around the cook’s kitchen leads to the great room, and up the stairs, a dramatic open gallery space perfect for casual entertaining. A first-floor master bedroom suite, three spacious bedrooms and baths upstairs as well as plenty of guest space in the detached guest house and garage provide enough room for everyone. The parcel includes almost 800 feet of direct river frontage and was chosen by local master builder Ray Clark for its expansive river frontage, ease of waterfront access and southern exposure. The river frontage is comprised of a long peninsula that abuts the Reeds Marsh Wildlife Management Area.
