About the property

4 bedroom (sleeps 8-12) built to be the ideal getaway

This open and airy contemporary is set back in the lush park like setting of a lovely neighborhood overlooking the Narragansett Bay. It is a private oasis that comfortably hosts an extended family within minutes of beaches and shopping. Although with all the amenities at the house, its often most fun to just stay home and play.

The front welcomes you with wide decks that are the favorite spot for coffee and soaking in the sunrise over the bay. Walking in the main entrance greets you with two story windows with views into the large private yard.

Turning into the fully equiped kitchen with cherry cabinets, top of the line appliances and expansive Italian granite counters. This is an open and bright kitchen that attracts sitters and makes the heart of this home a chic and inviting place where everyone will love to spend time.

An enormous rec room off the back of the house is where people will often congregate. Vaulted ceilings with walls of glass and an expansive stone fireplace. There is a full size pool table, 60 inch plasma tv, bluray dvd and Wii. A long table is perfect to keep a group puzzle going through the trip and a full sized refrigerator in the corner limits your walks to the kitchen.

Stepping out the great room sliders provides peeks into the large and private yard with an acre of meticulously landscaped grounds that border open space.

The large terrace runs the length of the back and steps into an outdoor living space with fireplace and fully equipped outdoor kitchen. Stepping off the terrace reveals the fabulous 14 foot deep swimming pool with diving board. There is a tournament quality ping pong table, a foosball table and another beautiful seating area. This great outside space includes a cabana with the conveniences of kitchenette and shower.

Inside and out, this fun and inviting home will comfortably host your family within ten minutes of Narragansett center and fifteen to Newport.

We test drive this home often to make the home a great experience for friends and family to share. We feel its an ideal venue to bring family together for a number of days. Whether your up for a competitive game of ping pong, an impromptu game of billiards or a chat on lounges around the pool, getting people back together is what this home is all about.

So come experience a glass of wine under a blanket of stars watching over lights on the Newport Bridge. This is a wonderfully fun place to spend a little close and quiet time with the ones you love.

For those interested, we ask that you only inquire if you understand that this home is meant for families who wish to enjoy a quiet and peaceful environment. The house is very fortunate to have reasonable neighbors surrounding it and, in fact, they are what make the neighborhood so beautiful and peaceful. We ask all renters to respect the neighbors and understand that the neighborhood is their home. This is not a 'party house' and there are rental rules. So please carefully consider if this quiet property is the right one for your vacation. Thank you for understanding our requirement to only rent to guests that can respect the sanctity of the neighborhood's peace and the fact that the neighbors are not on vacation.

Narragansett Ordinance: The town is encouraging families as renters by stipulating that only 3 people can be unrelated to the renter, all other guests must be relatives of the renter.

About Greenley Properties

We bought this house as a 3 generational family so we can enjoy a few weeks a year together.

Greenley Properties purchased this house in 2011

Why Greenley Properties chose Narragansett

We have vacationed in Narragansett for years and always viewed houses while here. When we walked through Horizon, everyone felt the extended family would be comfortable in the space. The rec room with pool table and 60' hi def tv, the large pool, multiple seating areas inside and out gives everyone places to share and still find a quiet place to read.

And we always stay amused in Narragansett. It has great beaches for the little kids, kitesurfing beaches for the older kids and sporty adults, and typical New England downtowns for shopping and hanging out. Horizon is 10 miles from Newport, an hour to Foxwoods and Mystic Seaport, slightly longer to Boston.

What makes this house unique

The backyard is truly an oasis - beautiful, private and completely fenced in. You can be active... have a blast diving into the 14' deep pool or playing foosball, ping pong or volley ball. Or just relax... lounge on the beautiful backyard terrace, cook up some burgers in the built in outdoor kitchen, or find a peaceful reading spot on the front deck. This house has a huge backyard terrace, a large front deck and 2 yards - plenty of space to play together or in separate groups.

Great house for family vacation!

Owner's Response: This is the family vacation house! Bringing far-flung family members all together for a precious shared vacation is what this house is all about. In fact it is exactly what brings our family together for a week each summer as well. The kitchen is a great size for several people to cook together making that big family dinner and the house has plenty of space for everyone to spread out. So glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you for the great review!

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We stay every year. We find new things to do each year. The house is well appointed with everything needed for a great family vacation (games, video games, great kitchen, pool, pool table, fooze ball, ping pong). The family room is separate from the main part of the house so the kids can make lots of noise without bothering the adults in the dining room or living room and the adults can stay up without bothering those who go to sleep early.

Graduation Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this house for graduation weekend was absolutely perfect. We had a lot of relatives that wanted to come to Rhode Island for my son's graduation from University of Rhode Island. This house gave us the ability to enjoy my son's graduation and spend the weekend together hanging out with my extended family. The house was beautiful and the amenities gave us so much to do together on a rainy weekend. The pool table and games were loved by all. The kitchen and grill were great - we were able to cook all our meals - which was really nice because we were able to spend more time together as a family and also much easier to avoid food allergies for several of my family. We were in awe of how amazing the house was. We couldn't have been more pleased! We made many new memories this weekend that will last forever - and I will always cherish. Thank you!!

Owner's Response: Fabulous! We love to hear that the house was a part of making such special family memories! We know that Mother Nature doesn't always comply with our desires for perfect weather, so all the indoor distractions are super helpful. And, although the area is packed with excellent dining, having a great kitchen and grill provides an alternative to having to eat every meal out. Thank you so much for the wonderful review and we look forward to you visiting us again!
