“Grey Gables” is the Richard Lord house situated on Lord’s Cove with magical views of Goose Island and the CT River, not available for sale in the past 3 decades. The swallows grace you with their presence every day and delight you with their murmurations. The sound of the waterfall can be heard near the former ice house and pond. A spectacular property, this home has a rich history. Meticulously cared for and recently refreshed, the bright expansive kitchen has views to the water and onto the professional croquet field framed in stone. The master bedroom offers views to the river, a sitting room, walk in closet and generous bath with soaking tub and more. A multitude of fireplaces and bay windows update this lovely antique home that boasts wide board floors, expansive rooms, large baths and newer windows gathering light and water views. A newer post and beam barn, constructed of antique timbers compliments the home. In the words of the late Roger Tory Peterson, one of the nation’s most celebrated naturalists and ornithologists, who lived very near this location, “the tornadoes of tree swallows eclipse any other avian spectacle I have ever seen.” Come experience for yourself: it is not a just a house, land and waterfront, but an entire experience, an exceptional private retreat.
