Property description

1653 Pilot Hill Road is ideally located on a hillside, thereby giving it superb views of the ocean and distant houses, Inns, and hotels for over 180 degrees from the Southeast to the Northwest. Having been built in 1996, it uniquely combines the desired New England saltbox architecture while meeting today's building codes, a wonderful combination. The downstairs ceilings are 10 ft high, and the ocean can be seen from each window on two sides of the house. The dining room table seats ten adults, and the 2nd dining room can seat another 6-8 children and/or adults.

The outdoor shower has both hot & cold water, enabling beachgoers to rinse away the sand before entering the nearby kitchen. The very well stocked kitchen will delight even the most serious of cooks; given its well lighted counter space and its complete set of Cuisinart Classic Stainless cookware. This home has two living rooms, two dining rooms, and two refrigerators/freezers.

The spacious deck facing the 180 degree ocean view to the East is 18 ft X 24 ft, while the adjoining 6 ft deck extends around 3 1/2 sides of the very large home.

This magnificent home is so comfortable and inviting, one may well be tempted to simply sit on the deck enjoying the inspiration to write derived for the awe inspiring view, instead of touring our lovely, tranquil island. Please, do leave the house to enjoy other parts of the island also.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

Why the Owner Chose Block Island:
The owners family has owned and operated a business on Block Island since 1980. 2014 will be our 35th season in business here. It was not until 1998 that I finally saw a house that captured me on first sight. I bought it the same day I saw it. You'll want to buy it also, but it is not for sale.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I never tire of looking out the windows enjoying the superb view; I enjoy watching the pheasant and deer feed nearby, and sometimes I will get up early enough to greet the rising sun from my East facing deck. I love this house, and you will as well.
