Quite simply, one of the best views on the CT river. This home was completely renovated and new to the rental market in 2011. Located 2.5 miles from Saint Clements Castle this 3700 sq ft home features cathedral ceilings, marble foyer, granite counters, hardwood floors, large deck, two fireplaces, "touch" state of the art kitchen, the list goes on. Almost every room has a view of the river.


Level 1 features three bedrooms, 2 rooms with queen beds, 1 room with a bunk bed all with a view of the river. The full bath has double sinks with granite counter tops and a shower/tub. There is also a lower living room with 43' LCD TV with a couch & games to sit & relax.

Level 2- Overlooking the river the main floor features laundry room, half bath, breakfast nook, gourmet kitchen with stainless touch appliances. The kitchen is fully stocked w/ pots, pans, utensils, almost everything you would need for cooking. The living room has a 60' TV w/ 7 channel surround sound, leather couch & love seat. The dining room has a large cherry table with seating for 6-8.

Step outside to the huge deck to enjoy panoramic views and spectacular sunsets.

The master bedroom has its own small deck overlooking the river, a 50' TV, an a fireplace with a propane log-set and a large closet. The last room on the upper level is the Study with a 23' Google TV, couch and a window seat to read a book & enjoy the view. (WiFi & Satellite TV through out the home)

Need some piece and quite but still want to have fun? This property is completely private. The 1/4 mile driveway takes you away from any noise leading you to complete privacy & solitude. No neighbors to be seen or heard from including across river. The sounds you would hear would consist of birds, (including a Bald Eagle nesting across the river) and boats traveling the river.

Private beach on the river!

A walk down a stone path will lead you to a deck. Here a staircase brings you to your own private beach on the river. Enjoy the day hanging out on the beach, canoeing, watching the boats, swimming in the river or just make a campfire and relax. A propane grill, chairs, kayak, rowboat, canoe and a 7' island float are available for you to enjoy on the river. (Beach items available during peak season)

**The property has a helipad. Helicopters approach from South East (river side) land left of the house. A windsock is located on the roof.

Would you like to be picked up at the airport and flow right to this house? Flown to a destination from this house? Take a flight around the Statue Of Liberty? Helicopter services provided by OceanAir located in Yalesville,CT

Bring your boat! We installed a boat mooring so you can leave your boat in front of the beach during your stay. We can accommodate up to a 50' boat.

This is a No Smoking house, minimum age of 30 required to rent/sign rental agreement & sorry no events.

**** As of February 2016 Homeaway has started charging a "service fee" which they collect 4-10% of the rental and keep themselves. This is not my fee nor do I agree with this charge since I am already paying homeaway a lot of $$ to list my property on this site. Don't let this fee discourage you please contact me directly if you are interested in renting ******

Why Owner chose East Hampton

This property I purchased for a house flip. A few weeks into this project I fell in love with it and knew I couldn't sell it. So I spent the next 8 months ripping apart the entire house, redesigning the layout, moving walls, replacing all plumbing & electrical adding state of the art AC & Heating systems. I put this house together the way I wanted, using only the best materials. I personally designed & installed all the tile, marble, kitchen cabinets, windows/doors, outside deck, everything down to picking the paint colors. The house came out fantastic and it is here for you to enjoy. 8 out of 10 people said the pictures don't do it justice.

What makes this house unique

Unique benefits this home has to offer... 1) A heliport. Fly in if you wish or have a helicopter come take you for a ride. 2) Privacy. No neighbors, not even across the river. Complete solitude & only a 5 minute ride to shopping, gas & restaurants. 3) Unbelievable panoramic views. You can sit on the deck and watch the sun set directly over the other side of the river. After that gather around the fire pit on the deck. 4) The beach. Take a walk down the staircase to the river. Here I have a rowboat, canoe, 7' float island, fire pit, picnic table, chairs, propane grill for you to use. 5) You can bring your own boat to use on the river during your stay. Enjoy!

Lovely home fabulous views

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a wedding. Since it rained a little, we were able to take wonderful photos from the deck overlooking the river. The deck is a fabulous place for a cocktail party or dinner. If you are having a wedding st St Clements a Castle, the house is minutes away. Quick trip to Middletown too.

In deed this place is magnificent! My friends and I just instantly fell in love with the place. Too much space, a new Yorkers' haven.

The place is well maintained, very clean. The deck with fire pit is perfect place to witness the beauty of the sky and the stunning view of the river.

This place just give me a reason to go back to CT. Can not wait to book this place again.

Fantastic Family Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The property description over simplifies the actual beauty and serenity of this house. Spacious, clean, & safe! Whether we were having our morning coffee on the deck while breathing in the spectacular scenery or playing games in the comfortable living room, the family getaway that we were looking forward to became a reality.

Words just don't do justice

  • 5 of 5

I rented out this property from March 31-April 4 (Thursday-Monday). I can't even put into words how PERFECT this house was for myself, my brother, and 3 of our friends. I mean the view you see in the pictures... seeing it in person is 100x more majestic. I took multiple pictures of the view from the back deck. This owner of the house definitely put a lot of thought into this property. The layout of the house is perfect. The master bedroom upstairs has its own master bath with a beautiful shower.. a common room, a balcony, walk in closet... like honestly what more can you ask for. The three bedrooms down stairs (one has a bunk) was also perfect and had a full bath downstairs which the shower and toilet were separated by a door from the two vanities. Worked out well for my friends and myself. The kitchen... all up to date with top of the line appliances, like he definitely put great work into this home. The surround sound speakers inside AND outside were perfect! Like I said, words cannot simply do justice for how amazing this house was for my friends and I.

HE HAS A HELIPAD.... like come on! how awesome is that! My brother and I were scheduled to fly to the house via helicopter, but due to high winds that day, we had to cancel, but definitely doing it next time!

No matter what your reasons are for looking at this property.... it will definitely create memories that you will never forget. The walk down to the beach is adventurous and at the same time, a lot of fun! it's just a beautiful, well-landscaped property and he is constantly updating the property and keeping it up to date.

Without a doubt, hands down, best house I have ever rented out. I still think about it day to day... Can't wait to go back some day and see what else the owner has done! definitely one of a kind.

Beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for a girls weekend and were very happy with it. The location was convenient for visiting wineries during the day. There was plenty of room in the living space for everyone and the deck can't be beat...beautiful views of the river, no neighbors in sight, gas firepit, speaker system etc. The owner was very responsive and our security deposit was returned promptly. I would recommend this property.
