Worries and cares slip away as you turn into "River Watch" The courtyard and its landscaping embraces you with beautiful colors and a welcoming privacy. Walking up the cobble stone path you sense what makes this home truly remarkable.... Several buildings create one flowing house weaving outdoor spaces and indoor rooms into an inviting environment to kick back and relax.
Perched along the banks of the Susquehanna River, "River Watch" was truly ahead of its time. Built in the mid 90's with granite countertops, slate and cork floors and using exotic hardwoods for the screened porch and deck... architect Michael Ryan along with its present owners created a residence that would be every bit at home in Loveladies, NJ or Carmel CA.
If boating is something you enjoy you have come to the right place. There is a concrete boat ramp and a 100 foot floating pier with a depth of more than 8' which has electric and water and can accommodate 3 or more boats.
Garrett Island which divides the river is a mile long and encompasses 200 acres with a swimming beach almost directly across from the property. No need to worry about development....the island is owned by the Department of the Interior.
Unique is an understatement.... Entering the main building you can see and feel the love and thoughtfulness that went into all aspects of its construction. The economical 4 zone in floor radiant heating and an airtight wood stove keep the home warm and cozy in the winter months. Its generous use of glass allows almost every room to experience the ebb and flow of the Susquehanna River. The gourmet kitchen has everything you could possibly need to cook up a quick meal or prepare a masterpiece. The guest wing separate but connected by a covered walkway, is on the other side of the courtyard. A large carport. gardening shed and a large heated and cooled garage with workshop are also a part of this compound.
Words alone cannot begin to describe this wonderful home. A home of this caliber rarely becomes available. Give me a call to experience "River Watch" for yourself.
