My grandfather built this house here for a reason! Several hundred yards from one of Rhode island's prettiest beaches, the house has five premier double bedrooms and two attic bedrooms. The deck sweeps around the south and west sides of the house and expands into a 400 sq. ft. covered porch at the southwest corner. 'The kitchen and bathrooms are modernized, but the rest of the house retains the turn-of-the-(last)-century feeling, including a great dining room that seats up to 16 at one table. The house can accommodate up to 14 people.
This house has been in our family through three generations. My brother lives up the road, and my late sister's kids own the place next door. I love swimming and body surfing at the beach, gardening and puttering around the place, and seeing my family and friends.
The Owner purchased this house in 1902
I didn't choose this house. It sort of chose me, and I have been in love with it ever since it fell to me as my share of the family estate.
The sound of surf, the places to walk, especially the beach, the air, the sun, body surfing when the waves are high, the outdoor shower after a swim, grilling on the porch.
wonderful, large, historic home, full of character. Favorite places were the dining room and the porch, both of which were inviting and gracious. Beautiful views, gorgeous garden, lovely interactions with the owner, who was in an adjacent home. Would happily return with our family.
We could not have chosen a more perfect house for our annual reunion with our friends - we had rented in Little Compton / Newport before, but loved the look & spaciousness of this particular house -
it was exactly as described, the location and views are wonderful - the front porch is huge and protected from the on shore breezes by glass windows - we sat outside the whole time regardless of weather. The house was clean, neat and had bedrooms for everyone - the kitchen was fully equipped and the owner was most helpful in all ways - it is super for all ages - our grandkids loved it & we loved that there was room for them to run around, relax on the porch, everything - and Yes, we have signed up for 2013 -
The region is excellent for bicycling. It is a 45-minute drive to Newport and the mansions there. There are also numerous garden markets and small-scale shopping sites nearby as well as the Sakonnet Vineyards winery and another winery in Westport, MA, 10 miles away.
