A Ravishing Rhode Island Estate Overlooking Narragansett Bay Wants $7.5M
While compact in size, America’s smallest state has a large presence when it comes to luxury. Going back to Newport‘s heyday of Gilded Age grandeur or JFK and Jackie’s iconic wedding, Rhode Island is steeped in prestige and history all while holding some of the most beautiful views and beaches in the country. Many travel connoisseurs make their way here each summer, but now someone can buy an especially gorgeous piece of the area for $7.45 million.
Though asking no small sum, 333 Poppasquash Road is no small property. Its 12.29 acres afford room for an 11,672-square-foot English Revival and 611 feet of beach shoreline. As one of the largest waterfront parcels in Rhode Island, it will cost to call it home.
Designed by Wallis Howe in 1939, the traditional manor reflects the charm yet formality associated with New England. Cocktails on the porch with views of Narragansett Bay may zap you into a Rosecliff or Marble House state of mind, but that’s just the beginning of the grandeur to be found here. The home has 11 bedrooms, so guests can shuffle through all summer, and period details like custom wood paneling and hand-carved millwork.
Friends and family of all ages can find something to relish in since the estate boasts a tennis court, beach, four-stall horse barn, pool and spa, gym, wine cellar, and more. When the ocean is calling you, it’s easy to take a boat ride from the private dock to dine in Newport or explore Westerly for the day, too.
For a buyer, it’s BYOB (Bring Your Own Boat), and Gregory Arakelian of Lila Delman Compass has the listing tucked privately at the edge of Bristol, RI.
