About the Property
4 Bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, sleeps 8-10, elevator, 3 large decks, 2 living rooms
Our custom-built (new in 2005) year-round second home will welcome you to experience summer or winter relaxation in style! The house is near charming Wakefield, Narragansett, Westerly and several of RI's best beaches, and in summer we include a beach pass to Matunuck Beach. The house, equipped with an elevator serving all levels, is a three-level “upside down” house with central AC and gas fireplace; the main living, decks and master bedroom are on the top floor for maximum views of Green Hill Pond and your private yard. Start your day with morning coffee in the tree-tops on the top deck overlooking the pond. Head out to explore the pond by kayak or canoe from your private dock. Spend a cozy winter day reading by the fire, or watching the game on cable with surround-sound, or cooking in the oversized kitchen. Come summer, you can canoe, kayak, or rent an outboard from a local marina to cross the pond to a private beach; or drive to a different gorgeous RI beach each day. Come home from the beach to an outdoor shower, then enjoy sunset cocktails on the roof deck with views to the ocean and Block Island. Cook your dinner on the outdoor gas grill or in the large, well-equipped kitchen with double ovens, microwave, gas cooktop. Eat it on the covered deck or the large dining room. Then climb into comfortable beds with new mattresses in one of the four bedrooms (one king, two queens, two bunks) with the ocean waves in the background (or the quiet hum of air conditioning). The occasional rainy day? No worries! The upstairs living room is spacious for quiet reading, music (or napping), the downstairs living room has cable TV, DVD, board games, etc. WiFi throughout the house. Mystic Seaport, Aquarium, Newport and more within a half hour’s drive. Our elevator serves all three levels so everyone can be included.

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: Our home base is in Hartford, Connecticut but we frequently escape to our home-away-from-home in Rhode Island, and enjoy traveling in our retirement. We built this -- Bernie's Dream House -- in the first year of our marriage in 2005 and both house and marriage are big successes. The house is large, to welcome various groupings of our 6 children and spouses, and 13 grandchildren (and counting), and numerous friends. After a walk, paddle on the pond or a day at the beach, we like to gather with friends or curl up with lots of books, whether on the deck or by the fire.
Why the Owner Chose South Kingstown, RI, USA:
Bernie dreamed of a house near the beach his whole life, and having lived in Rhode Island in the past he gravitated to the beautiful RI beaches. He found the land in 2002 and started designing the house before he retired, and by the time Sandy came on the scene it had gone through five architects and numerous design phases. It was worth the wait -- the result is spectacular yet comfortable, expansive yet cozy in each area of the house.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Many families choose to rent our house because we have an elevator serving all three levels, so people who are less mobile can be part of the family vacation. Because it is our dream house, it has special touches like beautiful dark Brazilian hardwood and solid oak floors. One of the most striking features is our deck area -- there are 250 square feet of deck on the guest room level, an equal amount on the top main floor, a 150 square foot 'crow's nest' deck at roof level from which you can see the ocean and Block Island. (One of our carpenters assigned to the deck commented, 'There is as much room on these decks as in the whole house!')
