Very close to public resort golf (Newport National) or be our guests at Golf Club we belong to (Green Valley - about 4 miles away). (Note: our land does not extend to water although walk to beach and public access to water is 350 feet from our driveway). Near Newport (4 miles), bird sanctuary (1.2 miles) and large public beaches and boat launch (2nd/3rd beach - 1.3 miles)

Middletown is a secret gem, close to the excitement and restaurants of Newport (5 miles from house) but quiet, elegant, and non-crowded. Indian Avenue is the best street in the town and property adjacent to this sold for $4.2 M five years ago). There is great local produce at nearby farms, fabulous running down Indian Ave, along beaches and into Sachuest Point (a 500 acre nature preserve on a peninsula - 4 mile loop from house), great sandy beaches (2nd and 3rd Beach), 3 golf courses, easy shopping, a bird sanctuary and nature trails, and great fishing off the coastline. Superb biking, tennis nearby, surfing, windsurfing, and sailing.

Andrew purchased this house in 1995

Why Andrew chose Middletown

Close to Boston, beautiful area, nice beaches, little traffic compared with Cape, low cost of living apart from real estate taxes which are a little ridiculous.

What makes this house unique

Quiet, no traffic light for three miles, can hear ocean waves and cows at night if you listen closely in nearby fields, great beaches nearby, fabulous running, sailing and windsurfing, great golf, wonderful restaraunts and nitelife, good social scene, live music in Newport. You get the best of Newport, only 7 minutes away by car, without the traffic or crowds.

Very disappointed. The website pictured were not reality.

  • 1 of 5

The house was dirty inside and out. Musty smell that we had to open windows and using candles to help diminish smell. We couldn't even use the downstairs because the musty smell was too much. Plates and glassware put away dirty. Dead plants inside and outside property. Bed linens not clean. Cobwebs and dirty rugs. The hot tub and outdoor furniture was filthy. The grill was dirty and dangerous to start. I could go on. I feel like this house is more used for family and occasional use for vbro. It definitely was not cleaned before our arrival. Food still in fridge. Oven not cleaned. We had to clean the house before we felt comfortable staying in it. Not what we wanted to do with the amount of money we paid. If the owner would put the effort into fixing the above problems, it would be an amazing property.

Owner's Response: This is the first time I've had a complaint about the house in 20 years of owning it. This tenant tried to blackmail me into giving her the cleaning fee back. The house was professionally cleaned before she arrived completely, the hot tub is professionally maintained by a service, and we typically leave condiments and unopened food for guests. She complained that the outside chaises had not been cleaned, which was ridiculous. Her valid complaint, that the grill was not cleaned,,has been addressed and will be done for future tenants. Of note, the basement bedroom is only needed if one has more than 6 people staying in the home, and though she registered 8 in her original request, after she had stayed she said they were six and I promptly refunded the extra monies that she'd been charged for guests in excess of six, though I had no evidence that this was the case and I remain highly suspect based on her other behavior. Try getting 6 hotel rooms in Newport at 500 a night each next time, instead of three bdrm complete house valued at 1.8 million in an estate area. She even complained about the pictures of my kids in the house!!!

Beautiful and relaxing...

  • 5 of 5

First of all, working with the owner, Andrew, was a pleasure. Always upfront in his expectations of me, and the wonderful features of his home.

What a beautiful and relaxing view of the Sakonnet Bay. Coffee and breakfast on the patio each morning with that wonderful view was the start to each and every invigorating day we stayed there.

All of the amenities described in the posting were as advertised... beds were very comfortable, kitchen and living areas were relaxing and updated. Beautiful flowers and gardens surround the home and make it a very picturesque home.

The public beaches were easily accessible with a short walk or drive, and a drive in to Newport itself was 10-15 minutes.

Thanks Andrew for a great 4th of July week! We had a blast and a much needed re-charging of batteries.
