Bald eagles migrating south from Canada and other northern points during the winter are known to settle into new homes along the beautiful Connecticut River, particularly its lower stretches. Bird watchers will frequently explore the river’s shores from January through March, hoping to catch a glimpse, and many will even book a trip for a morning or afternoon on one of the Connecticut Audubon Society’s numerous eagle watch cruises, which develop different routes on the river each year based on recent eagle sightings. Another option is to purchase a property situated directly on the river, providing a front row seat to the area’s wonderful winter wildlife–especially if that property goes by the name of “Eagle Watch.”
Now on the market for $3,795,000 with William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty, Eagle Watch is one of the Connecticut River’s signature properties, offering four acres of river frontage including a lovely full-service boat dock with lift extending out into the calm blue waters. The stunning views from the fenced, lightly wooded property encompass a peaceful waterscape of boats and water sport activities, with the occasional sight of an eagle swooping down to catch a fish. The views are experienced from many of the interior rooms, the gorgeous screened porch and the outdoor mahogany deck, which also take in the secluded, professionally landscaped grounds and gardens. A barn/stable is located on the property as well, and a pool permit is pending.
Constructed in 1990, the shingle style residence features a magnificent architectural design, highlighted by finely crafted vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors and spectacular walls of windows overlooking the river. With 12 rooms and 4,557 square feet of interior living space, the two-story home offers a double-height entry, formal dining area accented by elegant columns, library with fireplace, and open-plan living and kitchen area with fireplace, center island, dishwasher and marble countertops. The home has four bedrooms and five full and two half baths, with the luxurious master suite boasting river views and a superb, sky-lit master bath. Additional amenities include an in-home fitness center and steam room, recreation room, partially finished basement, attic with hatch opening, security system, washer and dryer, central air conditioning and attached three-car garage. Located at 330 Watrous Point Road, the residence enjoys the benefits of an address in Old Saybrook, one of the state’s most scenic and historic towns. Wildlife lovers and fine property enthusiasts alike will find much to admire in this exceptional offering.
