Charming Oceanfront Home in the Ocean State Asks $4.29M

East Coasters looking for beachy getaways tend to find themselves hunting for homes in the Hamptons or ferrying out to Nantucket or Martha’s Vineyard. But these famously elite escapes are hardly the only venues for vacation. The village of Quonochontaug in Charlestown, Rhode Island offers a quiet and neighborly destination—and a brand new listing. Asking $4.29 million, the oceanfront property boasts direct access to the beach and has oodles of charm.

Quonochontaug, affectionately abbreviated to “Quonnie” by the locals, counts two beaches within its borders. This home sits on the coveted Central Beach, one of only 13 properties within the community with this coveted location. The sound of the waves softly crashing is ever-present on the balcony and screened-in porches, and in the winter the atmosphere is just as sublime. A new owner can warm up by the gas fireplace of the master suite and unplug from the world for a little while.

To overlook the awe-inspiring ocean in the Ocean State is nothing to be taken for granted, and this home embraces such views with its bounty of windows and French doors. The perfect size for a spacious yet manageable second home, the cottage’s 2,284-square-feet of interior space encompasses three bedrooms and three bathrooms. On the main floor, an open area is airy and bright, with a new chef’s kitchen, dining room, and living room all becoming one.

Nicole Maine of Lila Delman Real Estate holds the splendid listing.
