Welcome to this private retreat, where home meets gallery meets the St. Lawrence River! Breathtaking southern vistas of the River and shoreline are framed by a multitude of oversized windows in this modern architectural design. The captivating St. Lawrence is accessed by 383 feet of coveted level shoreline that slopes gently from the house to a beautiful flat swimming area and permanent boat slip to clean deep water suitable for swimming, paddling, sailing and boating through the Thousand Islands. The main floor is artfully designed to include both expansive and intimate spaces. The generous living room with fireplace is a quiet place to gather and enjoy the views. The sleek Chef’s kitchen with eating bar for four, plus separate wet bar, invites both productivity and conversation, and the formal dining room is adjacent. The primary bedroom on the main floor features sunrise water views, and two walk-in closets and luxurious ensuite bath. An expansive great room, an intimate sunroom and an additional full bath complete the main floor. The upper level is currently laid out with one bedroom, a full bath and an art studio overlooking the river, but it could easily be refashioned for an additional one bedroom and lounge/studio. This slab-on-grade home features main floor laundry, plenty of storage and attached two car garage. Meandering limestone patios and mature trees offer beautiful spaces of sun and shade to enjoy the natural beauty of this private setting on the south shore of the island. The land slopes gently to the shoreline to a beautiful flat swimming area adjacent to the concrete boat dock. Howe Island is a richly diverse recreational Paradise, with world-class sailing, power boating and water sports. Wildlife abounds, and peaceful Howe Island bays and inlets are a popular natural habitat for migratory birds including white swans and loons. Two ferry services connect the island with the mainland, one of them running 24/7/365.
