Impressive architecturally designed riverfront home

Standing on the deck of the architecturally designed home gazing at the panoramic vistas of the Cochecco River is like stepping into an exquisite landscape painting.

The peacefulness of the place is magical, calming and breathtaking.

The 5.7-acre of waterfront property is truly stunning, but equally impressive is the custom-design home that offers a European flair conjuring up images of classic homes in the French countryside. Every detail of the home has been painstakingly executed to reflect the ultimate in style, craftsmanship and comfort.

Situated on a cul-de-sac in income-tax-free Dover, the home offers the perfect balance of privacy, convenience and fun. The waterfront home features easy access to the rivr is like being able to step into an exquisite landscape painting.

An expanse of verdant woodlands touched with brilliant blazes of crimson and gold reflect into the still, blue river. er, a deep-water dock and a rear ground-level garage that works well for boat storage.

The home has been custom designed to fit into the landscape and maximize the spectacular location with amazing views from just about every room. The use of natural stone and other materials respects the environment and complements the beauty of the waterfront. A covered veranda and multiple patios and balconies link the home’s interior to the landscape and make for seamless indoor-outdoor living.

The home itself is a marvel of style and craftsmanship with 8-foot solid mahogany interior and exterior doors, world-class mill work throughout and enrichments such as the powder-coated belly railings that line the curved balconies and the four working exterior gas lanterns that add ambiance at night.

Entering the two-story great hall is an awe-inspiring experience, the wood floor gleams, the two-story wood-burning fireplace soars, while the curved staircase wraps around the space to create visual texture with its custom-designed wrought iron railings and hand-carved stair risers. Straight ahead oversized windows frame expansive river views. The space is impressive, open and filled with natural light.
