About the Property
4 Bedroom, Historic Cape On 14 Acres / Walk To Beach
Reaching town takes about 5 minutes by car or 15 by bicycle.
Guests are allowed access to a high-end propane grill.
A shaded picnic table and set of lawn chairs allows guests to enjoy their meals beneath 100 year old maples.
The large front yard is ideal for lawn sports.
The nearby Block Island Club offers weekly rates for sailboat rentals and tennis court access. Cars, Kayaks and Bicycles and Standup Paddle Boards may be rented in town.

This charming 18th century cape is nestled amongst ancient stone walls in the quiet shade of a mature maple grove on Clayhead Trail. The setting is extremely private as the house sits on 14 acres; 12 of which is in conservation. A 10 minute walk through a nature preserve brings you to a beautiful sheltered cove, 300 yards north of the famous Mansion Beach. Quiet, quaint, shady,cool, historic, private setting within walking distance to Crescent Beach.
Year Purchased: 1999
About the owner: Littlefields have farmed the island since 1690 and this property was originally a Littlefield homestead built in 1720. We have lived year round on the island for over 30 years and bought this property to enjoy the privacy and raise our honeybees. Chris has worked as a conservationist with The Nature Conservancy preserving the island's open space for over 20 years. We have harvested our Block Island wildflower honey since 1984. Both of our children were raised here. Our son is an accomplished artist who shows his sculptures on both the east and west coasts.
Why the Owner Chose New Shoreham, RI, USA:
We love the shady serenity here in the summer. It seems to be about 10 degrees cooler here than in town and the trees are remarkable. Walking to beach without having to find a parking place, taking an outside shower, sitting under the maples, napping in the shade, grilling while the kids run in the yard, gazing at the stars…these are all the things we love about our property in the summer.
