Overview

About the property

4 bedroom (sleeps 8-12) built to be the ideal getaway

This open and airy contemporary is set back in the lush park like setting of a lovely neighborhood overlooking the Narragansett Bay. It is a private oasis that comfortably hosts an extended family within minutes of beaches and shopping. Although with all the amenities at the house, its often most fun to just stay home and play.

The front welcomes you with wide decks that are the favorite spot for coffee and soaking in the sunrise over the bay. Walking in the main entrance greets you with two story windows with views into the large private yard.

Turning into the fully equiped kitchen with cherry cabinets, top of the line appliances and expansive Italian granite counters. This is an open and bright kitchen that attracts sitters and makes the heart of this home a chic and inviting place where everyone will love to spend time.

An enormous rec room off the back of the house is where people will often congregate. Vaulted ceilings with walls of glass and an expansive stone fireplace. There is a full size pool table, 60 inch plasma tv, bluray dvd and Wii. A long table is perfect to keep a group puzzle going through the trip and a full sized refrigerator in the corner limits your walks to the kitchen.

Stepping out the great room sliders provides peeks into the large and private yard with an acre of meticulously landscaped grounds that border open space.

The large terrace runs the length of the back and steps into an outdoor living space with fireplace and fully equipped outdoor kitchen. Stepping off the terrace reveals the fabulous 14 foot deep swimming pool with diving board. There is a tournament quality ping pong table, a foosball table and another beautiful seating area. This great outside space includes a cabana with the conveniences of kitchenette and shower.

Inside and out, this fun and inviting home will comfortably host your family within ten minutes of Narragansett center and fifteen to Newport.

We test drive this home often to make the home a great experience for friends and family to share. We feel its an ideal venue to bring family together for a number of days. Whether your up for a competitive game of ping pong, an impromptu game of billiards or a chat on lounges around the pool, getting people back together is what this home is all about.

So come experience a glass of wine under a blanket of stars watching over lights on the Newport Bridge. This is a wonderfully fun place to spend a little close and quiet time with the ones you love.

For those interested, we ask that you only inquire if you understand that this home is meant for families who wish to enjoy a quiet and peaceful environment. The house is very fortunate to have reasonable neighbors surrounding it and, in fact, they are what make the neighborhood so beautiful and peaceful. We ask all renters to respect the neighbors and understand that the neighborhood is their home. This is not a 'party house' and there are rental rules. So please carefully consider if this quiet property is the right one for your vacation. Thank you for understanding our requirement to only rent to guests that can respect the sanctity of the neighborhood's peace and the fact that the neighbors are not on vacation.

Narragansett Ordinance: The town is encouraging families as renters by stipulating that only 3 people can be unrelated to the renter, all other guests must be relatives of the renter.

About Greenley Properties

We bought this house as a 3 generational family so we can enjoy a few weeks a year together.

Greenley Properties purchased this house in 2011

Why Greenley Properties chose Rhode Island Coastal

We have vacationed in Narragansett for years and always viewed houses while here. When we walked through Horizon, everyone felt the extended family would be comfortable in the space. The rec room with pool table and 60' hi def tv, the large pool, multiple seating areas inside and out gives everyone places to share and still find a quiet place to read.

And we always stay amused in Narragansett. It has great beaches for the little kids, kitesurfing beaches for the older kids and sporty adults, and typical New England downtowns for shopping and hanging out. Horizon is 10 miles from Newport, an hour to Foxwoods and Mystic Seaport, slightly longer to Boston.

What makes this house unique

The backyard is truly an oasis. The kids will have a blast diving into the 14' deep pool. Lounge by the cabana, read with a view of the bay, or eat by the garden. This house has 3 decks and 2 yards - plenty of space to play together or in separate groups. in 2013, we will have an outdoor kitchen and living room.

Beautiful Home!!!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this home with some family and friends for a weekend. The home was absolutely gorgeous and very true to the photos. I wish we were there for better weather to enjoy the gorgeous backyard. The home is about 20 minutes from Newport where we frequented most days. The house was stocked with kitchen ware which was great as we spent a lot of time cooking at the house. I highly recommend this property. Robin was extremely helpful in the weeks leading up to my stay answering any and all questions I had. I hope to be back soon!! What a wonderful experience.

Owner's Response: Hi Brooke, If only the weather would always cooperate! Those are the days when we are thankful for all the board games, video games, the pool table, and the 2 separate TV areas! And for the bakers/cooks, the well stocked kitchen. We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay despite the weather and that I was able to answer all your questions and make the rental process comfortable for you. Thanks for the wonderful review! All the best, Robin

Everything we hoped for

  • 5 of 5

The property gets great reviews so our expectations were high and we were not disappointed. We loved the pool. The outdoor fireplace was very popular and great for s'mores. Being able to play foosball and ping pong outside was great fun. Robin was incredibly quick to reply with any questions that we had leading up to our stay. There were no issues at all while we were there. The location was nice with short drives to Newport and to the beaches. We would definitely book this property again.

Perfect for large families!

  • 5 of 5

Having seven adults and four children can get pretty crowded but not in this beautiful house. There were so many places to hang out that the kids were never on top of you. The pool was amazing, plenty of yard and I had my first S'mores at the outdoor fireplace. There was complete privacy even though we were in a neighborhood. There was mature trees all around the back yard. It felt like we were on our own private estate. The beach was a 15 minute ride away and one of the nicest beaches I have ever visited. When we ran into a snag (our own fault) the owners were right there by phone to help us out. Can say enough good things about this property.

Owner's Response: So nice to hear! The pool is a great advantage to this house, it keeps the kids happy and occupied after the family returns from the beach or sight-seeing which gives the adults the chance to relax! Everyone wins! Hope you can return again next year. Thank you for the review!

We had a perfect week.

  • 5 of 5

Horizon could not have been more perfect to suit our needs! The pool was the main attraction and the kids were in it all day. Lots of space to spread out and the fooseball and ping pong were a wonderful addition. Cliff walk was amazing with an ice cream stop at The Creamery down town. Mahoney Clam Shack in Narragansett is a must do. Best Crab rolls anywhere. The beach at the bay by URI 5 minutes down the road was so much fun. Dipping in the water, hunting for crabs and climbing on the rocks! On a scale of 1 to 10, this was a perfect 10 vacation.

6th Annual Family Summer Adventure

  • 5 of 5

Spent the week in this welcoming home with our grown children and grandchildren. Everyone hung out in the pool or relaxed on the patio after returning from our morning outings to the nearby beach. The kids especially enjoyed making S'mores in the outdoor fireplace. Topped off most nights with a friendly game of pool. Nice neighborhood for early-morning and after-dinner walks. Our chocolate labs were exhausted after a week of sun and fun in Narragansett!
