Property description

Welcome to 'The River House', one of the cutest and most accommodating homes on the west bank of the Niantic River.

Located in the beautiful Oswegatchie Hills area of Saunders Point, it has easy access to the beach, the salt water, and a deep water dock. You can moor your boat out front, drop in your kayak, go for a swim, or simply soak up the sun and get a tan on the dock.

The original home was torn down and a new one built in 2007, complying with the hurricane standards at the time. Located at the end of a Cul de Sac, the area was originally a cottage community, now populated with year round homes.

This is a wonderful place to share some of the summer with your family. Fish in the morning, swim in the afternoon and enjoy the sun sets in the evenings. For entertainment, you will have fabulous views from the 2nd Level TOP deck both up and down the Niantic River.

Wonderful meals can be prepared in the kitchen, and on the gas grill located on the Main Level Open Porch, just off the Kitchen. For fun and convenience you can send your food up to the top deck with the assistance of the 'dumb waiter' on the Open Porch.

The bedrooms are quite quaint with brand new queen beds. We have added a set of twin bunk beds off the Family Room. The Family Room itself has a queen pull out couch.

A flat screen TV is located in the the upstairs main level Living room for that movie you just have to see.

So come and enjoy the Mornings on the Main Level Open Porch watching hawks, geese, ducks, boaters, swimmers, and the occasional seal or otter. During the day, engage in all of the salt water shore front activities that interest you; fishing, swimming, canoeing, kayaking, boating, water skiing, sailing. In the Evenings, relax on the top deck with a beverage and/or meal and take in the fabulous sun sets, water views, and Moon rises.

Prepare yourself to enjoy a little bit of heaven on earth in our Riverhouse.

The 'RIVERHOUSE' is located at the end of a short, quiet, cul-de-sac street with a fabulous, elevated, easterly view of the Niantic River and salt-water beach/dock access. Fishing & Swimming are yours during summer months just 75 feet from your front door. Bring your boat and keep it here for any boating activities (water skiing, tubing, salt water fishing). Other shore front type activities (Party Boat Fishing, Tourist Day Cruises) are nearby in Niantic, Essex and Mystic. Rocky Neck State Park, a public State of Connecticut maintained park and beach is 5 miles away. Mystic Seaport & Marine Museum and the Mystic Aquarium are 20 minutes away. The Nautilus Submarine Museum is 15 minutes away. Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods Casinos are 1/2 hour away. Ferries to Orient Point, Long Island: Fisher's Island, and Block Island are located at the New London Ferry Terminal. Taking the Ferry to any of those places makes a great day trip "adventure". Bring your bicycles/mopeds and walk right on. If driving, during the summer months, reservations are recommended for cars. You will need a car to get to town or other activities.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1971

About the owner: Leigh's family owned and operated Bayreuther Boat Yard and Marina, just down the street and within walking distance of "The Riverhouse" for over 60 years. (The marina is no longer owned by the family, and is now called Three Belles.) We have owned the Riverhouse location for over 40 years. It was our first home.

Why the Owner Chose Niantic:
We originally located here to be close to work and family. What you see, now, is not the original house. We tore down the original house and built the one that you see now to the 2007 hurricane standards. We think this is the cutest house on the river. The house was new in 2007, as are all of the amenities. We even installed a dumb waiter for easy entertaining on the top deck! :) :) :) The decor is completely nautical. You feel right at home the minute you step foot in the front door. The top deck is a must - for relaxing, dining, sun bathing, reading, and that all-important evening beverage. The view is just breathtakingly FABULOUS! And being as high up as you are, there is privacy, as well.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Sitting on the main level side porch with your morning coffee is SO memorable. We are morning people and the view is east. Watching the sun come up over the water, and seeing hawks swooping in to fish for their breakfast is amazing. If the water is calm, you can see schools of fish disturbing the glassy surface, chased there by larger creatures just below. In the evenings, you will always remember relaxing on the top deck with a glass of wine, sharing a meal with friends, or simply staring at the stars, the moon, and the water. It is quiet, here, in the evening. You get a chance to think, and contemplate, and to dream a little more.
