About Kate Schlesinger
Our family purchased this home before it was even built! My dad is an architect who modified the classic barn design to incorporate the upstairs play room and larger windows. My mother, a landscape architiect, sited the house to look over the pond and planted the magnificent border garden around the front perimeter as well as the small orchard in the back. The house is filled with many books and games from our childhood summers on BI, and decorated with art purchased from local artists. Our family still enjoys the house for several weeks every year and maintain it ourselves.
Why Kate Schlesinger chose Block Island
You can walk to Mansion Beach - the very best beach in BI! You can walk the other direction to Andy's Way on the Great Salt Pond for clamming, sunsets and beachcombing. Because we look over a pond and wetland, the back porch view remains open, natural and serene. The green lawns, mature trees and landscaped gardens make this property a wonderful family retreat.
