Alexandria Bay cottage description

This site was originally the location of a Million dollar residence that burned in 1996. The lot was vacant for two years before the owner decided to build a small summer cottage. It has a spacious over-sized deck with a panoramic view over looking Boldt Castle. The deck has several commercial lounge chairs with small tables to host afternoon cocktails or casual gatherings for sunbathing. A propane bbq grill sits at the river entrance to the screened-in porch adjacent to a few round outdoor dining tables that sit 6 people each. The screened-in porch has several pieces of wicker furniture facing the riverfront with a TV and area to dine if not using the deck. Leaving the porch to the cottage through a set of sliding glass door is a kitchen with a full size refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, and a full selection of cooking and tableware. The kitchen is open to the adjoining living-room that is sundrenched on three sides with multiple sliding glass doors and the view mimics that from the deck. It includes a tv, two sofas (one sleeper sofa) sitting chairs and coffee tables. The cottage sits on a ledge 30 feet above the St. Lawrence River directly above a private dock that has deep water access. The east end of the dock features a ramp that can be used for kayak's, canoes, and multiple types of personal watercraft. Access to the dock is rugged via a walking path through the natural vegetation and caution is advised to the elderly. More information is available by contacting the owners directly.
