Property description

WE DO OUR BEST SO YOU CAN PLAY AND REST!

Welcome to your immaculate family-friendly, modern waterfront home, set on almost 3 acres of beautiful private property in the incomparable Thousand Islands. The perfect setting for an idyllic vacation.

The features and amenities of this unique property are unmatched in the area! Enormous rooms, offering twice the space of most other properties! Several lots have been purchased and put together to form this huge 3-acre refuge of privacy and solitude, right on the water. Your own private paved road leads you to a fresh, modern, light-filled, scenic vacation sanctuary. Ultra high-speed internet (many homes in the area do not have access to internet at all), large screen TV with 200 channels, including movie, children's and specialty channels. We have tried to think of everything to enhance your holiday pleasure!

Breathtaking panoramic views (including Boldt Castle)! Glorious sunrises and sunsets! Exclusive and historic upscale private community of Westminster Park on Wellesley Island, New York, accessible by boat OR car. Quiet and serene, yet only 5 minutes to the excitement of Alexandria Bay.

Almost-new, spacious modern home. Open concept upscale gourmet kitchen opens onto dining and living rooms with spectacular views of the mighty St. Lawrence River. Huuuuuge bedrooms (with brand new top of the line Simmons Beautyrest mattresses)! Lots of windows and sliding glass doors offer unlimited opportunities to enjoy the magnificent views from indoors or out. Large, full-length upstairs balcony overlooking the river, and large deck in private fenced yard. Private dock space (sheltered from the St. Lawrence River), steps from your front door, available upon arrangement. Our very own long, private paved road and acres of green space offer much-valued privacy.

Area attractions and activities include wonderful sightseeing opportunities, including two castles, lighthouses, tours by boat or helicopter or hot air balloon, live theater and music, artists' colony, fine and casual dining, spas (or relax with a private massage, outdoors, on your beautiful property), nightlife, antique shops, charming boutiques, free winery tours at your choice of many local wineries, horseback riding, hunting, swimming, scuba diving and snorkeling in crystal clear water (the area is said to offer the finest freshwater scuba diving in the world!), several zoos, fairy-tale playground, whitewater river rafting, kayaking, go-karts (longest track in the state of New York!), bumper cars, arcade, manicured golf courses, scenic miniature golf, giant (almost life-size) chess game, historical sites and reenactments, cycling, boating, jet-skiing, beaches, Nature Center (ranked in the top 5 in the U.S.), hiking trails, world-class fishing (among the top 10 in the US), and more!

Only 30 minutes from Watertown Airport, with service to cities and countries throughout the world.

Another country is practically at your doorstep, only 15 minutes away! (Passport or enhanced driver's license required to enter Canada.) Casino approximately 20 minutes away. Only one of a handful of places on earth with 2 UNESCO designations: World Biosphere Reserve and World Heritage Site, only minutes away.

Or, just relax in your lawnchair, at the river's edge, or on your upstairs balcony, and gaze upon majestic Boldt Castle. Enjoy world-class fishing (among the top 10 in the US!), right from your own dock! Even the new, well-stocked supermarket, only minutes away from this private enclave, will increase your relaxation time, as your own personal shopper fills your shopping order for you, in advance, and delivers it to your car or boat. Truly a throwback to a kinder, gentler time.

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.
