Why the Owner Chose Saunderstown, North Kingstown, RI, USA:
This property was built by Owen Wister as his summer home. We are currently the third generation of his family to live here in the summer. Being fifteen minutes from Newport with its many tourist attractions, mansions, Tennis Hall of Fame and Museum, Art Museum and proximity to Providence and its museums, restaurants and magical Water Fire nights coupled with superb fine sandy beaches and every imaginable water sport continue to captivate our family. The fourth generation is equally enamored with Wister House.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Sitting on our terrace with the view of Narragansett Bay in the distance is peaceful and bucolic. Can watch children frolic on the acres of lawn playing soccer, badminton, tag, toy car racing, or blowing bubbles. Some of us enjoy playing American Six Wicket croquet on lawn with authentic 100 year old iron wickets. The young children are all captivated by our costume trunk.They put on shows for all to relish. Toddlers adore the child's kitchen where there is a toy kitchen, cabinets filled with toys and books.The large panelled dining room is the family gathering place at the end of the day for leisurely dinners sparking long, lively conversations often lasting many hours. The terrace table is a peaceful place to have a breakfast on a warm summer morning while overlooking Narragansett Bay. The convenience of our all weather tennis court is a serious attraction and affords hours of good play and healthy competition and sometimes performs as a large playpen for toddlers.
