Overview

Matunuck House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4-8)

This artistic house is on 4 acres of meadow and trees at the end of a quiet private road. It has 180 degree waterfront, almost 2000 ft. of water frontage with open views across Potter's Pond. It has a boat launch and a dock with easy access to the OCEAN via Pt. Judith. Fishing and clamming are popular on this pond. Watch or paint gorgeous sunsets and sunrises from a large wrap around deck from sunny south to cool breezes under the grape arbor. The house has a 70's open floor plan with sliding glass doors on three sides to watch the wildlife, waterfowl and water activity.

Bedrooms: One comfortable queen size bed in the upper loft (closets abound up there) to be gotten to by a spiral staircase. From the pillow of this bed you can watch the sunrise over the water without lifting your head. Another room has 2 twin size beds with it's own access to the outside. The loft can also accommodate many more sleepers on air mattresses as it is a 'sleeping loft'.

This is an open house plan with a queen size bed on the second floor loft. A second bedroom on the first floor, has 2 twin beds and it's own door.

Bathroom: A large square tub/shower looks out through a full size window for basking in the sunshine while showering.

Kitchen: Full kitchen with large refrigerator, oven and microwave and a unique pantry for storage.

The heat is electric radiant and the wood stove is cozy for those chilly summer evenings.

Attached garage.

Separate barn, separate greenhouse and organic garden plot and flower beds. Lots of bird watching--osprey, hawks, owls, swans, and great blue heron all share the skies with the seagulls.

Deer, rabbits and red fox live here too.

Miles of ocean beach is reached by by car or bicycle, only 2 miles or a short kayak trip across the pond.

This house was built by artists with their own hands and imaginations. There is creativity everywhere.

Enjoy the peacefulness, paint the beauty.

About Linnea Leeming

My sister and I inherited this home and gorgeous property when my father passed in 2006. We started renting it to like minds this past summer very successfully as you can see by the great reviews. It is a unique property in that both our parents were artists and built this house themselves. A great deal of thought has gone into the location of the house and it's views. The house itself is unique. It has a very large open room with a loft that sweeps around the outside of it. The kitchen and bath are both up to date and very accommodating.

What makes this house unique

Because of the location of this house, it is completely quiet. No road noise, no people, an occasional fisherman on the pond. It's three sides of glass makes it an ideal spot to work on art projects and the solitude leaves you undisturbed.

The beauty that surrounds the house is inspirational to both artists and writers. Every day brings large birds and plenty of wildlife to enjoy.

We have our own dock from which to sit and enjoy the sunsets or to push off from with the kayak.

Cool and Interesting House and Land

  • 5 of 5
This is first time we've stayed on this part of RI coast. We feel very lucky to have stumbled upon this particular rental property. The house has unique features and it's beauty is only highlighted by the property location and setting. Great place to watch water (on three sides!) and we loved watching the Ospreys fish in Potter's Pond. We threw our kayaks right at the private docks and went out paddling several times each day, including a memorable full moon paddle! The owner met us on arrival and pointed out interesting features of the house and land. If the pictures make this place look beautiful and peaceful--it is that and more! We hope to return soon.

Love this place

  • 5 of 5
This is our third visit. It is a wonder experience to stay in this beautiful house. The craftsmanship throughout the house is an adventure. We enjoyed the fun on the adjacent pond and the sunrise and sunset is beautiful. We hunted for quahog and watched the asprey fish. We made our way out to the ocean and capped it off by visiting local restaurants. We find this house and this area to be one of our favorite spots on the east coast.

Thanks so much,
Bruce & Joan Reed

One of my top 10 favorite places on the planet

  • 5 of 5
I love this house! It was built by an artist couple and you can see their love everywhere you look. The house is filled with lovely artistic touches that are a joy to discover. Everywhere you look there are wonderful details, even the bathroom is a treat. (You'll have to rent it to see what I mean). That alone is enough to bring us back each summer but the location seals the deal. The house is on a sunny point, right next to the water. Kayak from the dock, or sit and watch the world go by. The road is private and quiet. This is the perfect place to really relax and enjoy a good book and a glass of wine. Or, with the huge back yard, hold a family croquet party. I can't say enough about what a wonderful spot this is. And if you decide to venture out, there is a lot to do in the area. Although once you watch the sun set from the back deck, you may never want to leave.
