Video of 46 Cedar Point | Norwell, Massachusetts real estate & homes
http://www.CedarPointProperties.com - Just over 20 miles south of Boston lies the peaceful town of Norwell, Massachusetts located in Plymouth County. Bordered by the picturesque North River which leads to the sea, Norwell was historically a farming and boatbuilding community. Today Norwell is a suburban affluent community with just over 10,000 residents and provides modern schools, libraries, shopping, health facilities, churches and a nature preserve. Conservation land provides miles of walking trails, including the 129 acre Norris Reservation bordering the North River. Norwell residents site its friendliness, beauty, rural character, excellent school system and easy commute to Boston as attributes they cherish about the town. In order to preserve its natural beauty, the North River is only one of 20 rivers in the United States protected under the Scenic Waterways Act. It still appears today much as it did 200 years ago. Shipbuilding once flourished on the North River during the 1700 and 1800’s with over 1000 vessels built along its banks. Built in 1812, the Mount Vernon was launched just downriver. Today the North River is a source of beauty and recreation, providing ocean access, fabulous kayaking and canoeing, boating, swimming and fishing for striped bass.
46 Cedar Point is a rare property offering peace and privacy in a spectacular setting in a prime riverfront location of over 15 acres bordering the North River with a private dock. Named “Bass Cove” due to the abundance of striped bass caught from the dock every spring, great fresh fish a part of the allure. At the end of a private road, a long winding drive and cobblestone bridge lead to this elegant and understated custom Colonial home bordered by old stone walls and the North River.
