1 Trouant Island
The Rum Island condominium community is located on Trouant Island, which itself is located across the tidal causeway. Considered an island sanctuary, Rum Island condos feature three stories of luxury that spans more than 5600 square feet. Given this amount of space, it is little wonder that the price tag for a Rum Island condo matches the luxury that awaits its buyer. The average price stands at $1.499 million.
These condos have six rooms, three of which are bedrooms. The master bedroom has its own fireplace, as well as hardwood flooring. An additional bedroom has hardwood floors while the remaining bedroom has wall-to-wall carpeting.
On the lower level of the condo, the kitchen and living room can be found. The kitchen has a combination of stone and tile flooring, as well as a built-in pantry and granite counters. The living room comes with a ceiling fan, a fireplace, and elegant cathedral ceilings. The downstairs level also houses the exercise and game rooms, the foyer, the library, the media room, and the sun room. The condo comes with a total of six parking spaces, two of which are inside the home's garage.
Located on scenic Trouant Island across from a tidal causeway, the three-story, 13-unit luxury condominium community of Rum Island is nothing less than an island sanctuary sheltered from the bustle and cares of the big city.
Constructed in 1990, each six-room, high-end home features more than 5,600 square feet of open-concept living space and sells for just under $1.5 million.
Located on the lower level, the elegant kitchen features a stone/tile combination floor; granite countertops; a built-in pantry; an island and breakfast bar; recessed lighting to make meal preparation a breeze; and contemporary stainless steel appliances, including a range/oven, refrigerator and dishwasher; and a garbage disposal and trash compactor.
The dining and living areas feature beautiful hardwood flooring and cathedral ceilings with attractive fans. Massive picture windows in the living room let in plenty of light, while recessed lighting provides evening ambiance. The living room fireplace welcomes you home at the end of a chilly winter day.
Both the master suite and one other bedroom feature hardwood flooring; and the third bedroom, located on the second floor, features plush wall-to-wall carpeting. The master suite boasts cathedral ceilings, recessed lighting and another fireplace to keep you warm on those cold winter nights.
Downstairs, enjoy the privacy of your own library, get a convenient workout in the exercise room or just relax with family or neighbors in the game or media rooms.
Your screened patio lets you enjoy mosquito-free outdoor dining, as well as just admiring the beautiful rolling lawns and landscape, abundant wildlife and spectacular New England sunsets.
Park your vehicle in your own two-car garage, while your guests have a choice of four outdoor parking spaces.
Not far from home, you can enjoy the scenic New England outdoors on the trails through the 184-acre Stetson Meadows conservation area located along the North River. The history of the region dates back to 1634 and includes trails that run through forestlands and fields and along a marsh.
The Stetson Meadows trail system consists of many loops that allow hikers to travel as far or as little as they wish, anywhere from less than a mile to around 3 miles. Although the terrain isn't perfectly level, it nevertheless allows for easy trail running. Besides, there are very few tree roots, so you don't need to worry about tripping on your hike or run. Bird watchers especially love Stetson Meadows Trail, as it's very quiet. Twin Pines Trail is characterized by towering pine trees on both sides, and River Loop Trail, lined with large beech trees, follows along a marsh.
You'll find several benches throughout the site where you can take a break from hiking and just relax. There's also a picnic site near the parking area and a kayak launch where you can access the marsh for some scenic kayaking.
The 12-mile-long North River, formed at the junction of Indian Head River and Herring Brook, is a tidal river, which means it's a relatively short river greatly influenced by ocean tides. Bluefish and striped bass fishing is a popular spring activity on the river as schools of fish are trapped in the shallows formed by the rapidly-changing tides. Because these shallows commonly form near the flats of the river, fishing is possible either on land or by boat.
A short way from Trouant Island, Bartletts Island is located within marshlands in the North and South River Estuary. Heavily wooded, Bartletts Island is sand based. When the tide is low, a large amount of sand, known as "The Spit," appears, making it a popular beach and boating destination on the South Shore. The Spit is an important nesting spot for piping plovers, a threatened species.
