Description

Dramatic views of the Connecticut River and beyond surround Highover, a one-of-a-kind, majestic estate situated atop a hillside on 30-plus gated private acres fronting idyllic Whalebone Cove and Creek. Completed in 1917 for a NYC insurance magnate and his family as a summer cottage, Highovers main residence exudes a timeless elegance in a scenic setting surrounded by water, wildlife and Conservancy land as far as the eye can see. Designed by Alfred Hopkins, a renowned estate architect, also built estates for Louis Comfort Tiffany and Frederick Vanderbilt. Situated below the main house is Merecote, an updated 3 bed, 3.5 bath 1820s guest house listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The current owners of Highover have lavishly and lovingly restored, renovated and reconfigured the main residences interior, taking the entire structure back to its original stone walls sourced from the propertys quarry while incorporating state-of-the-art materials and construction throughout. Much of the infrastructure and interior elements were custom designed for 21st century lifestyle yet retaining the character of the original architecture. Today, Highover deliberately offers dramatic water views from every room. This is especially emphasized in the primary bedroom suite in the west wing. SEE ADDITIONAL PUBLIC REMARKS
