This Block Island Compound Asking $11.8M Is a New England Dream
There are many ways to get to Block Island, one of the most laidback New England islands for summer getaways. Ferries run from Port Judith, New London, and Newport to the North and from Montauk below. Small planes destined for the island take off from the Westerly and Providence airports. After arriving, the tiny stretch of land is a picture of peace and privacy populated by roughly a thousand residents and an ever-changing cast of vacationers.
To live on Block Island, where no house lies far from the ocean, is no small privilege. At 1776 Corn Neck Road, a rustic yet modern compound is especially dreamy, now asking $11.8 million.
Hidden at the end of a long driveway and set on 7.62 acres, the property’s luxurious sprawl counts a total of 7,833 square feet of interior space. That tally encompasses the main house, garage-barn hybrid, guest cottage, and pool house. In total, there are 7 bedrooms and 5.4 baths to spread out across, guaranteeing room for friends and family all summer (so long as they’re invited!).
Hemlock post and beam style comes to life at the main house and barn, where crisp lines soar within open floor plans. Less modern in vibe stands the guest house, which offers a private brick patio for its two bedrooms.
Outside, a saltwater pool overlooks exquisite grounds. Clay Head Trail, accessible via a stretch of conserved land just beyond a stone wall, leads directly to the East Side beaches.
