  There’s something about rowing on the river— it’s hard to get much closer to the water and the forward motion resulting from steady, rhythmic exertion is soothing. It also harkens back to a simpler, less complicated time. Back in the late 1800’s a building that was reported to be a Quaker Meeting House was floated down the Bass River. Up near the point where the River meets the Sound, it was set on a 2.5 acre piece of land with 175’ of waterfront, where it presides to this day on a priceless location at the river’s entrance. This structure, circa 1700 became the core of a family home, that while added to over the years has remained in the same ownership since about 1895. For the first time since 1895, it is now available. 2.5 acres, endless views, salt infused air, four dwelling units in three buildings. You just have to see this.    Everyone in your family will want dibs on “The Barn”, an exquisitely charming water view guest residence. With driftwood hutch and accents, cathedral ceilinged great room with loft and two bedrooms, this is a place where memories are forged. The kitchen is fully equipped and opens to a huge step down dining room that opens to the expansive yard.   The cottage may seem like a conventional home, but with four bedrooms, front to back living room, kitchen and probably the only detached water view outdoor shower you are likely to see, guests may not want to leave.   Cruise the shore of any waterfront community and your first impression is likely to be how close the homes are to each other. Yachtsmen passing this estate are struck by the expanse of land surrounding each of the buildings. Almost unheard of in this day and age, two and one half acres on the water is a rare treasure.
