The Eventide Condominium
Enclave was built to be the quintessential example of high-quality,
small community Condo living in New Haven. The complex was
built in the late 1980’s. All eleven units were built
as high quality ‘homes’ with quiet and privacy
given the utmost attention.
Extra thick walls and floors along with
sound dampening insulation and solid core doors add to the
feeling that one is in a ‘stand alone home’ rather
than a ‘condo’ setting.
Stunningly situated and quality built,
this unit is a prized living space. Having been here for the
past six years, it will be exceedingly hard to leave, as it
is a place one becomes attached to quickly and forever. Circumstances
surrounding the need for additional space, are why we sadly
now seek to sell.
Turning off Quinnipiac
Avenue and into the Eventide complex is like entering
Entering # 11,
one feels a total sense of privacy, forgetting there
are close neighbors or even that one is in the City!
The open layout
of the first level provides immediate exquisite water
views upon entrance to the unit.
The views are
‘ever changing’ due to the variety of vistas
that extend from East Rock to the Grand Avenue Bridge.
Boats bob in the marina across the river, beyond the
swaying marsh grass. Distant dots of cars move on I-91,
shoreline trains traverse the near distant Bridge, and
the occasional plane landing at Tweed all contribute
to delight the eye.
The water views
are where Hemmingway Creek joins the Quinnipiac River,
a prime habitat for countless migratory birds and other
wildlife. From the deck or sliders one sees the Egrets,
Herons, Swans, the Kingfisher, and occasional Hawk,
as well as countless Duck and other bird species, ALL
WITHIN 20 YARDS!!. It's a birdwatcher's paradise.
With the addition
of the loft, in itself a spectacular 3rd level to the
home, windows face north, south, east, and west. In
winter months, one can bask in the warmth of the southern
sun while resting in the window seat beneath two 4’
X 6’ skylights that overlook huge trees or provide
sweeping river views. Spring through autumn you might
relax protected in the in-room hammock of the master
bedroom, suspended within the ‘captain’s
nook’ with 200 degree views of river and marsh.
Track the stars
or moon across the sky.
Enjoy a cozy fire
while being entertained, (the TV cabinet is built into
the wall adjacent to the fireplace). It tucks in and
disappears from sight when not in use.
