Why Alexandria Bay: We have been vacationing in the incomparable Thousand Islands for many years. The private community of Westminster Park, on Wellesley Island, includes a wonderful group of good, kind, caring neighbors, just like an old-time village! This imparts a wonderful feeling of peace and security. This secluded waterfront property has been on our wish list for years. When this desirable property came up for sale, with scenic River views, lots of green space, an almost-new, modern home, with all the amenities, and an extra-long paved private road, conferring all-too-rare privacy, far, far from the main road, we immediately grabbed it!
The Unique Benefits at this House: Although we have the advantage of being on an island, offering incredible water views all around, it is accessible by bridge, so we can go anywhere by either car or boat. We have the privacy offered by our secluded location, while being just a few minutes away from golf, shopping, restaurants, Nature Center, spas, attractions, etc.
Westminster Park is an exclusive, historic private community, where many families have lived for generations. With our new home, we love the fact that we can have it all: the old-fashioned benefits and feeling of security of a stable, long-established, family-friendly community, with a modern, almost-new, well-equipped home in a scenic setting,.....not to mention the privacy offered by the fenced-in backyard, and the huge area of green space surrounding the home!
And the River, the glorious River.....peaceful and serene, seemingly without end. Ships from all over the world, on their way between The Atlantic Ocean and the Great Lakes. Sitting on the balcony, with your morning coffee, gazing out at this wondrous scene, your eyes transfixed on majestic Boldt Castle. Or being dazzled by the rising and setting of the sun in a glorious blaze of color.
We feel truly blessed to have been given the opportunity to enjoy the unique benefits of this special home.
