Where the Connecticut River meets the Long Island Sound rests a historic seaside sanctuary known as North Cove. This Old Saybrook, Connecticut community is part of the town’s historic district, and deemed by the federal government as a harbor refuge from storms due to its protected, deep water anchorage. Because of this positive coastal feature, the cove holds an exceptionally high reputation for yachtsmen throughout the northeast. The area is additionally known for its many beautiful 18th and 19th century homes that have been well-preserved throughout the years, along with a number of more recently built residences that pay homage to the historic roots of this splendid Connecticut shoreline neighborhood.
201 North Cove Road is one such residence, constructed in the 1920s with exceptional architectural design and quality. While staying true to its origins, the home has been entirely renovated from top to bottom under the guidance of a noted architect and highly regarded building firm. The end result is nothing short of brilliant, reflecting today’s highly desirable open floor plan living style. An easy flow between rooms lends itself to a flawless incorporation of the beautiful surrounding landscape, where sweeping lawns, gardens and views of the spectacular Connecticut River, Long Island Sound and North Cove are visible from every room. The coastal paradise continues with the home’s deep water dock, perfect for sailing and power vessels. This extraordinary property is clearly one of the area’s most prized residential retreats when it comes to beachfront access, amenities and features.
