Clayton estate description

Watch Island is one of the 1000 islands set in a tranquil bay overlooking the St. Lawrence Seaway. It is a newly restored 100 year old Victorian home with spectacular views of the ships, sunsets, 1000 Island Bridge and Rock Island lighthouse.

The dining room is a large gracious room which seats 16 plus with 12 windows overlooking the seaway and evening sunsets.

The comfortable living room is furnished in antiques with piano, fireplace and views of the river.

Country-size, full service, eat-in kitchen and house is surrounded by four furnished porches with breathtaking views... One is enclosed in glass/screens. All baths have claw-foot tubs/showers. Boathouse with docks and deep water.

This is a charming and unique part of the world nestled among 1800 enchanted islands in the St. Lawrence River. Rich in history and exciting historical activities: French Festival, tours and enjoy tea in lovely castles, ride in antique boats, antique boat auction, picnic on surrounding island parks where children play on old fashioned playgrounds, stroll through villages with gingerbread houses that take you back to the turn of the century, dine on the front porch of grand old hotels.

Delight in the history of the people who lived year-round on islands, who went to school in school boats and ice skated across the frozen river to school, visit one of the oldest post offices in the U.S. which is on an island only accessible by boat.

Share in the excitement of Pirates Weekend and the Poker Race with roaring cigarette boats, delight in the parade of the antique boats, wonderful art galleries, performances in restored 1800 opera house, visit castles, antique shops, watch the island people come by boat to get their supplies at the town docks, enjoy Canadian towns, restaurants and casino, relax and just enjoy nature. Unforgettable vacation! Your life isn't complete until you visit the 1000 islands.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1996

                  About the owner: We are the second family to own this magnificant island and beautiful victorian house in 112 years. My 3 brothers and I grew up in Rochester, NY and all have wonderful families which include 20 grand children. It has been the greatest experience ever to watch them discover the 1000 islands. We all gather at the islands from our homes in Roch.and Ossining, NY.

                  Why the Owner Chose Clayton:
                  It is one of the most magical and beautiful areas in the world. A real surprise to find more than a 1000 islands in upstate NY. We all grew up dreaming of owning our own island and 'dreams do come true.' We were amazed at the homes beauty when we first saw it which was in ill repair. We have completely restored the house to what it was when it was built adding essential modern updates... plumbing, heating, electric.Then furnished it in period furniture. What fun!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
                  There is nothing more exciting, adventurous, romantic thank owning your own island. Awesome!! It offers peace, tranquility, privacy and room for all your family to enjoy especially the water sports. A life changing experience. It is such a privilege to own such a magnificent piece of history. AND one we are able to share with the world thru VRBO and Homeaway.
