About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 3-5)

Charming circa 1750 New England farmhouse with federal era renovations.

Surrounded by 14 acres of rolling stonewalled pastures overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and East Passage of Narragansett Bay, this property provides the ideal vacation getaway while still within easy access to the cultural and recreational activities available in the cities of Newport, Providence and Boston.

A short walk down to the shore brings you to a lovely bathing beach which is ideal for families who wish to swim, picnic, cast a line for blues or stripers, windsurf or simply enjoy the scenery of this barrier beach and estuary.

The Historic Tiverton Four Corners, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is an easy bike ride away. Once there, cool off with award winning ice cream at Gray's, visit one of several art galleries, enjoy a meal at the Grille or a deli sandwich and sweets from the Provender.

Visit the Historical Society museum or the second oldest library in Newport County, founded in 1820. The area is rich in beauty, history and tranquility.

The property retains many interesting features of an early coastal farm. The outbuildings include a barn and hayloft with attached carriage shed as well as the foundation remains of a larger barn and its adjacent small stone-sided dairy once the cool storage place for milk and cheeses.

While these structures are reserved for the use of the owners, they have great visual appeal and lend unmistakable authenticity to the rental experience.

The interior of the house is imbued with the warmth and comfort of vintage style. Most rooms are wallpapered and many contain the original wide pine floor boards, some of which are finished in the Nantucket spatter painting technique.

The kitchen, master bedroom, a second bedroom and upstairs bath are all fitted with interior shutters. The living room , den , master bedroom and large eat-in kitchen each contains a fireplace which, while we must insist guests refrain from using, nonetheless, contribute greatly to the romance of the place.

The three bedrooms located on the second floor share a large bathroom which is centrally located and adjacent to the master bedroom. From every room in the house a water view may be enjoyed.

When these same views entice you down to the beach for a dip, an outdoor rinse shower awaits upon your return.

Curl up in one of the wicker or Adirondack chairs on the lawn beside the hydrangea garden or relax in the shade of the fieldstone terrace while the grill is readied for a late summer's night meal under the stars.

The Unique Benefits of this Historic Farm House: Quiet rural life, swimming, windsurfing, sailing, fishing, biking, walking, bird watching, shopping at local farm stands and fish markets, dining at the multitude of fine restaurants within driving distance, attending live theatre in Providence and musical events in Newport.

August 2013 -- If you are looking for peace and quiet, in a charming setting, with stunning views from every angle, this is shangri-la. The house, complete with barn, charcoal grill, adirondack chairs, and a pretty white picket fence, is perfectly positioned at a rise in the road leading to Fogland beach. The panoramic views of the surrounding landscape and seascape were magical. The house, while giving a nod to the past -- my children said it felt like Grandma's -- was clean and comfortable, with TV, internet, and big comfy sofa and chairs. The owners couldn't have been more helpful in making us feel at home and providing recommendations for shopping, dining, and even wind sailing lessons!

Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This home is wonderful. Stunning water views from every window in this lovingly restored and maintained period home with charming details placed throughout. The perfect place to go, relax, and get away from it all. The peaceful property has a commanding view over Fogland beach and the Sakonnet waterways leading into the Atlantic ocean. It was great to just go an explore all the little pockets of beauty throughout, and enjoy the start of the fall season. As an artist, I found the property inspirational and fueling for my creative spirit. This home was definitely the retreat I needed, and the caretakers are amazing. Love this place- would love to return.

Where New England meets the Water...

  • 5 of 5

Exactly what we were looking for. Late summer days enjoying the quiet beach just down the hill...evenings at home enoying sunset water views across the rolling farmland. Ideal for idle contemplation.
