                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: We have always enjoyed vacations in Rhode Island. We love the smell of the salt air, the boats, sound of waves and birds, fresh lobsters, and the beach. I never liked 'driving to the beach', finding parking and lugging all the things. So now we can just walk out the door!

                      Why the Owner Chose Portsmouth:
                      The spectacular views really make this house so relaxing. Such a good place to 'get away.' We wanted to be close to Newport but have peace and quiet at night.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Just walk out the back door and into the water where we could swim all day. This house has knotty pine walls reflective of the time it was built and careful restorations and updating. It feels very 'beachy.' Cocktail hour in the living room watching the sun set over the water is really special.
