When one visits 10 Pilot Rock Lane in Riverside near Greenwich one could be forgiven for not immediately noticing the strikingly attractive house straight away. Instead one’s gaze strays automatically to the view. But that’s okay. Everyone does the same. It’s natural and only proves how important outlook and location are when choosing a home.
The astonishing view sweeps from local Todd’s Point the the east and across Long Island Sound. But glorious as these vistas undoubtedly are the eye is repeatedly drawn to the New York skyline. There, on the western horizon, is the Freedom Tower, the Empire State Building and the pencil-thin 432 Park Avenue. It is a view so iconic that it pulls the attention and serves as a reminder that one of the world’s most vibrant and powerful cities is not only within sight but is also within an hour’s commute by handy and frequent rail service – from breathless city to breathtaking home in the time it takes to read part of a book, take a nap, deal with emails, keep up with friends on social media or just think.
But now it is time to look away from the view and turn our attention to the house. Here is a modern classic, a home built not just to impress but to love and to last. Built in attractive Arts and Crafts style this beautiful home offers substantial but comfortable accommodation with delightful outside areas for relaxing and taking in the 180 degree views.
A short walk away is the family friendly Riverside Yacht Club, the Association quarter mile crescent beach for swimming and picnics, and cement floats for deep-water moorings.
This is a very stylish home in a world class position.
