The most exquisite Connecticut riverfront property offered! Approximately 600 ft of riverfront, 3.4 acres, 180 degree views of the spectacular Connecticut River, deep water that allows docks/moorings, private beach, & an amazing array of wildlife make this magical retreat the perfect place to get away from it all! A short drive from NYC or Boston-or travel via seaplane or helicopter to a local airport. This home has been described in The Hartford Courant as significant historically as well as architecturally. Once the Brainerd Store-Russell Inn where guests would come by steamship; now an updated, yet still charming 5 bedroom/3 1/2 bath home & barn owned by the current resident for 30+ years. You will find wide board floors throughout the home, fireplaces & gas stove, hand planed custom kitchen cabinets, island, granite counter tops, deluxe master bath, & several rooms for the gathering of friends & family. There is an abundance of natural light & water views from almost every room. French doors from the lower level family room open onto the lawn overlooking the river. From the lawn, walk down a few concrete stairs right into the water! Relax and enjoy both sunrise & sunset from one of many porches or balconies. Imagine yoga on the lawn in the morning, unwind by the fire pit in the evening, & during the day, the possibilities are endless--swimming, boating, tubing, kayaking, jet skiing, paddle boarding...everyday will be an unforgettable experience. A truly rare opportunity!
