Description

Luxury Estate in New York
This once in a lifetime opportunity to own a piece of history that is large enough for the entire family and their guests. With 10 bedrooms and more than 9 bathrooms everyone can come and enjoy everything Wellesley Island has to offer. This estate sits on 85 private acres with a 5 acre private peninsula surrounded by the St. Lawrence in which the 2 private docks reside. If you are not enjoying the St. Lawrence perhaps you can relax at the in ground pool, gardens and more. Relax outside in the expansiveness around you or come in and enjoy the multiple fireplaces, game room or beautifully updated kitchen. You will not lack for a place to sit or an activity to participate in here. Hopewell Hall offers extensive regality inside and out. Whether hosting a gathering, island hopping, taking a day trip to Kingston or Ottawa, or just watching the occasional freighter threading its way through the maze of islands, Hopewell Hall offers the same beauty and enjoyment now as it did 100 hundred years ago. Hopewell Hall, as it is called in the Thousand Islands, is one of the original homes along “Millionaire’s Row” that was built in the 1890’s when many families from New York City began buying up islands and property as summer vacations homes. Families such as John Rockefeller’s, George Pullman’s (Pullman railroad car), Frederick Bourne’s (Singer Sewing machine), Edward Noble’s (Life Saver’s candy), Andrew McNally (Rand McNally maps) and others came to the Thousand Islands to escape the summer heat of New York and Chicago and to enjoy all that the region had to offer. Most famous of all at the turn-of-the-century was hotelier, George Boldt, who operated the Bellevue-Stratford in Philadelphia and the Waldorf-Astoria in New York City, where his portrait still hangs today. He also constructed Boldt Castle. Boldt Castle, like the castles that stood in the Rhineland of Boldt’s homeland, was a gift for his beloved wife but was never finished. Due to her sudden passing before it’s completion work was immediately halted, though the castle has since been restored to its intended magnificence and sits only minutes away by boat. Originally built and named by the Browning family, Hopewell Hall was purchased by George Boldt, in the early 1900’s as a wedding gift to his daughter, Louise Boldt so that she could continue to spend her summers in the islands that they had come to love. Hopewell Hall later passed on to Louise’s daughter, Clover, who used the home as her summer residence until 1996 when she passed and the family sold the home, the last Boldt owned property in the Thousand Islands. Since then, the home has been the summer residence of only one family who has taken to restoring the interior, exterior and extensive grounds to their original beauty.
