Life on the River Sure is Sweet

Shore traffic, why deal with it when you don’t have to? Forget the weekend treks to the beach and enjoy a fabulous vacation spot on the water, just around the corner. Why put two+ hours between you and your happy place when you can enjoy it year round? Port Indian is one of Montgomery County’s best kept secrets, so secret that I’ll bet that you didn’t even know it exists. Whether this is your permanent home, or a local getaway, life on the river sure is sweet.


The private waterfront community of Port Indian is tucked away, nestled in the Valley Forge Watershed, between the beautiful Schuylkill River and the Schuylkill River Trail. 30 West Indian is almost an acre of either action packed fun, or a lazy day on the river; it’s your choice and both options are phenomenal. Actually, the property is large enough that family and friends can enjoy both rip roaring fun and relaxation all at the same time. This property is among one of the larger lots in Port Indian and features a boat launch, not only a rarity on the river, but a very hot commodity. In addition to the boat launch, there is a huge dock, beautiful grounds with a fire pit, killer custom cabana bar and deck, outdoor shower and more. With all of this and parking for tons of your friends, parties at this house are typically referred to as epic.

Whether your thing is speed boating, fishing, kayaking or just lazing about on the pontoon, you can surround yourself with river toys galore, as there is plenty of room to store them in the enormous 4 bay garage. When I say enormous, this is no exaggeration. Heck, you could have a school dance in just one half of them. For the right price, they may even throw in the disco ball.


Above the garage is an incredibly open, bright and airy living space, offering 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths and huge great room with dining area and vaulted ceiling that is open to the kitchen. If the outdoor space didn’t make you feel like you were on vacation, then the house itself will seal the deal. The views from the master bedroom, great room, and even master bath are absolutely gorgeous. The main living space, living room, dining area and kitchen with bar are all open to one another, creating yet another awesome entertaining space. The master bedroom is spacious with breathtaking views of the grounds and water. The master has its own, roomy ensuite bath with slate shower, soaking tub and dual vanities. Also off of the master bedroom is an enormous walk in closet with laundry area. Two additional bedrooms and large hall bath round out the interior space. Off of the great room, through double french doors is a wrap around deck fit for a king with a view of all the land.


Port Indian has its own Ski Club, as well as, Civic and Boating Association and offers great annual events including the Ski Freeze in January and River Day in July. There are several other local organizations to check out if you are fan of the water, like the Upper Merion Boat Club. On the other side of West Indian Lane is the Schuylkill River Trail that runs from Center City to Oaks, where is connects with the Perkiomen Trail. The trail passes through Valley Forge Park, as well as Conshohocken, Manayunk and the Art Museum.

The home itself is located close to major routes of transportation, yet feels completely removed. This solidly built home is only 8 years old, so everything feels new. Seriously, what’s not to love?


This is a truly unique and outstanding property, a rare opportunity that you’ll regret if you let it get away.
