Lovely Country English Tudor in the beautiful beach community of Shelter Harbor. You can hear the gentle ocean waves from each room of this home and every corner of its two acre property. There is an abundance of space to enjoy family in a relaxed atmosphere. This property lets you feel like you have entered a simpler time and place. The handsome living area harkens back to an era gone by...read, relax, visit with family and friends. Two screened-in porches serve as additional sitting areas with relaxed, comfy wicker furniture and offer three dimensional views to the property's unique grounds.
Perennial gardens and frog pond, complete with water lillies, view the gracious canopy of a RI native maple from a hammock, and peek-a-boo views of Quonnie Pond. Enjoy the very private heated pool surrounded by privet and hydrangeas. Think 'Secret Garden' meets the beach...this is 'Enchantment'.
