Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We have lived here in Tiverton since 2006. We love living on the water and can not say enough about how perfect it is to wake up every day and enjoy a new view. Boating - both power and sail, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, fishing, water sports are all to be enjoyed right here in this little slice of heaven. We love cycling and enjoy the 26 mile round trip from the house to Sakonnet Point, with many gorgeous trips in between.

Why the Owner Chose Tiverton:
We chose this home because it is a perfect waterfront home to be used for rentals and visiting family. It has been newly re-furbished and is clean and inviting. It's convenient to many beaches, Newport, Providence and Boston. Airports, train stations and busses are also close.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Walking to the local coffee shop in the morning, strolling along the town beach, watching the boats come in and out of the Sakonnet Harbor and parade past the house is a favorite activity. Full spectrum of water and nature enjoyments abound.
