This understated Block Island beauty sits on a southerly ocean view lot. The home was designed by architect James Estes, Newport RI, and is featured on the front cover of the book "Yankee Modern" an appreciation of Jim's work published by Yale University Press. The design is exactly what the book title promises - a sensitive & thoroughly modern interpretation of a New England farmhouse, with a floor plan for today's Block Island lifestyles. The expansive first floor provides an easy flowing plan with ample room for an inviting entry; cook's kitchen; dining and living rooms; the master bedroom/bath; and a cozy office. Off the entry foyer there are two facing staircases that lead to second floor bedrooms which include a second en suite bedroom and two bedrooms with a hall bath. Light streams through the oversize traditional farmhouse windows & each bedroom boasts a Block Island style dormer. There are maple floors, lovely Esmeralda granite counter tops, custom designed newel posts & a soft coastal color scheme. Modern amenities are here too with central air, hot air heat, whole house dehumidification, and water filtration. Outdoors, there is an open porch & a screened porch, both with ocean views; an outdoor shower accessible from the yard & from the master bath; and a convenient built-in shed for beach gear, Southerly ocean views capture ships at sea, moon rise illuminating the water; and the graceful arc of the offshore Block Island wind farm.
