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.

Owner's Response: Hi Catherine, When the whole family gets together, we know that cooking big family meals is a critical part of the vacation! The kitchen is spacious enough for several cooks and we tried to make sure that they would have the gear they need to prepare all the family favorites. We are very happy that you enjoyed the house and look forward to having you stay with us again. Thank you so much for the fabulous review! Robin

Great place

  • 4 of 5

Each year we choose a place in Rhode Island to spend time with our family. This was a great house for all of us. There was something for everyone given the beautiful indoor and outdoor space. Our three grandchildren (2,4,7) rode bikes, played games, and enjoyed the pool, even if a bit cool this time of year. The adults enjoyed night fires, cards and billiards. It was so enjoyable we only ventured off the property once the entire weekend, except for walks to view the ocean!

Owner's Response: Hi John, We really wanted the house to be part of the vacation, not just where you sleep, but a place where you and your family would truly enjoy spending time. The patio, pool and landscaping provide a beautiful space to enjoy the outdoors, while the rec room with all its entertainments can provide some welcome distraction if the weather is less than perfect. Thank you for your review and we do hope that you will stay with us again in the future! All the best, Robin

Could not recommend this house enough!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent our second Memorial Day weekend at the house and we absolutely loved it! There is so much to do around the house, so many games and the kitchen is stocked with every utensil you would need. We can't wait to book our next trip to the house!

Graduation weekend stay

  • 4 of 5

Long weekend for URI graduation and glad we picked this location. Robin was very responsive every step of the way and the house is so well equipped. So much to do without even leaving the house. Weather wasn't great for using the pool bug it certainly is a spectacular feature, also fully equipped. Outdoor space is incredible. Very pleased with our stay.

The house was very clean and spacious!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed the rental as we celebrated my son's graduation from NAPS. We utilized the outside kitchen and enjoyed some great seafood. The large kitchen and family room was a great bonus. The house was perfect for our family and I highly recommend it!

This house has WOW factor galore!

  • 5 of 5

We have been fortunate enough to rent this property twice in the last 2 years. The house has an open, airy feeling with great views of water or landscaping from every window. The cathedral ceiling is a wow! The cozy leather couches in the living room and the new sectional in the recreation area are also wows! We enjoyed the outdoor fireplace since we visited in April. There is a magnificent pool with pool house for the summer season. We like to cook and entertain our friends so we really appreciated the two dining room tables and gracious kitchen facilities. At night the pool table was the center of attention. This house has it all!

A very heartfelt thank you from the entire family for choosing our house again and for such a fabulous review. I hope we will see you back again! Robin
