Enjoy your summer in this exquisite waterfront estate facing historic Gould Island and Newport. Greet your guest by boat on your private deep water dock or watch the sunrise and sailboats go by during summer regattas. Spend time relaxing in your heated salt water pool. Built in 1875 and remodeled in 2008 the main farmhouse blends European charm of villa style living with modern day comfort. From the moment you open the french doors into the breezeway you will find a harmonious blend of old world materials imported from Europe connecting the main farmhouse to the 3 car fieldstone garage and carriage house built in 2008. Floor to ceiling windows throughout the home open to water views. Entertain in your vintage wine cellar to create a tasting experience. Your guests can retire to the carriage house connected by the breezeway with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and living space to relax and cook if they choose. Across the stone driveway is the original slate roof barn used as a caretakerâs cottage which gives you 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom with laundry for additional private quarters. With over 5 1/2 acres of land and more than 8,000 square feet of living including 7 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms this estate will captivate you with every unique design detail. Visit Newport in 15 minutes. With trains nearby you can easily access Boston and New York while maintaining exclusivity of island living. Once you arrive you will not want to leave your exquisite waterfront home.
