If you fantasize about living in a seascape- dreamscape, escaping stress and writing, researching, creating art, in a space that is singular, spectacular and filled with secrets and shining glass, this is the day to make your epic dream come true. Atop a grassy knoll in the center of Noank, a charming landmark village with beautiful boats, beaches, architecture, small shops, famous eateries, 5 marinas, we find the timeless treasure, The Re-Assembly Hall. This 1902 Carpenter Gothic, former chapel, with its many exquisite, Art Nouveau stained glass windows and tower welcomes us into its rare beauty, spaciousness and serenity. Sitting on the deck of The RAH, we spot boats being lowered into the sparkling water - with wine glass & novel in hand, feel the sea breezes, hear the gulls; start unwinding. Stepping inside, we are wholly transported. A 30 ft. high, open world is lit up by dazzling, rare, round & tall, flower-full stained glass windows. In this loft of gothic arches, unique, antique and modern art & furnishings, curated yet casual coziness, character, comfort, quirkiness, wood, we are inspired. Our 1742 sq. ft. ship allows dreamers to sleep well and wake up refreshed and calm. There is room in this loft-y sanctuary to dance, play instruments, sing (perfect acoustics) meditate, feast, read (beautiful books of all kinds are awaiting you in this space) commune with oneself and with friends. This will be your best, most unforgettable work and living space! No need to bring much as everything is provided. In unspoiled Noank village, near marvelous Mystic and all of its history, the river, Mystic Seaport and museum and wonderful amenities, this 3 minute walk to the village beaches retreat with its medieval mystique, quiet and brand-new mod cons has never been open to renter-dreamers before now.
