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.
I am a physician in Boston and purchased this house as a summer house for my family.
Andrew purchased this house in 1995
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.
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.
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.
Several 18 hole golf courses, membership at semi-private golf club, deep sea fishing, hot air baloon, helicopter rides
