My Notes

Commanding an unparalleled setting in Manchester Harbor, with 800' of private waterfront, direct beach and cove access, River House must be seen to be believed. Sitting atop the peninsula where the harbor narrows, at the end of an exclusive private drive where the land meets the sea, this shingle-style dwelling offers exceptional views and unrestricted water access via a private boathouse and deep-water dock. This is a property for the active buyer looking to establish a 21st century residence in a timeless maritime setting. With 7,000 square feet of living space, River House offers generous rooms on multiple levels with water views in nearly every room. The home's layout-two wings and a separate apartment-affords flexibility to the busy owner who both entertains and desires privacy. The home's lustrous 19thcentury pedigree shines through in its remarkable architectural detail and craftsmanship, including pristine woodwork such as original antique long leaf pine floors. A fieldstone fireplace centers the living room, while a dining room has windows on three sides and opens to a deck over the harbor; the kitchen, complete with butlers and laundry pantries, overlooks the harbor and lawn. A light-filled great room/library stands out with its rich mahogany paneling and mantelpiece, barrel-vaulted ceiling and ornate fireplace. The main staircase, built by shipwrights and scaled masterfully, leads to a second floor master suite with tiled fireplace, a full bath with its own fireplace, and a dressing room with built-in floor to ceiling cabinets; this level also includes five more bedrooms and two more baths with claw foot tubs and heart pine floors. The separate apartment on the lower level is complete with kitchen, living room/dining room, bedroom, full bath and large deck perched over the harbor, while the boathouse features an additional three rooms.Comprising two lots spanning 3.8 easily maintained acres, River House is a quick walk to town and 30 minutes from Boston and Logan Airport. Anchored by granite columns and resting on a cut granite and fieldstone foundation, this remarkable estate also includes a tennis court, rolling lawn and open woodland, and a dock for swimming and water sports. The separate lower apartment and deck have the best view in town, and the historic four-room boathouse has plenty of space to store what's needed to enjoy life at the dock or on a boat. For owners with a boat, the dock has a generous 9' of water at low tide. The property has had just three owners in its 120-year history, including the founders of the famous Waltham Watch Company.  More Less
