About the Property

Historic Victorian Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms,close To A Shell Beach

Sea Glass Cottage is located on the exclusive north shore of Jamestown/Conanicut Island, on a quiet cul-de-sac adjacent to Narragansett Bay.

This historic Victorian-style cottage was built in 1876 and has been in our family for over 100 years. In 2008 we bought Sea Glass Cottage from our extended family and began its total restoration & upgrade, touching every aspect of the house, including new; roof, electrical & internet wiring, plumbing, walls & moldings, heating system, double paned windows, window air conditioners, ceiling fans, new septic system with water filtration system, new bathrooms, new kitchen, & interior/exterior painting. Most importantly, we retained our cottage’s historic heritage by refurbishing the original tin ceilings, doors, and wood flooring.

Our home is a few steps away from a shell beach, a shore line neighborhood beach, perfect for swimming, snorkeling, skipping rocks, or moonlit camp fires. Beach shoes are recommended. The beach has amazing views of the Narragansett Bay, Prudence and Patience Islands. We have a wrap around porch that allows you a serene place to relax in one of our comfortable rockers & enjoy our tranquil setting.

The new gourmet kitchen is fully equipped, and its counter island seats two, allowing for comfortable gatherings with the chef. All of the rooms are beautifully decorated with many of the family’s original antiques, mixed with cottage-style comfort.

On the first floor there is the living room, dining room, kitchen, one full tub/shower bathroom, and a once-upon-a-time music room - that can be closed off completely for privacy with a queen sofa sleeper. The second floor has one full bathroom (shower only), three bedrooms; two have full beds, one has two twin beds, and a tiny room which was once the nanny quarters - with a single daybed, with access stairs to the kitchen.

Located on the north end of Jamestown, you are just 10 minutes from the center of Jamestown and 20 minutes to famous historic Newport.

Based on our family's past 100 years here at Sea Glass Cottage - I can easily say it is an ideal location for building sweet family memories and traditions.

Maximum 6 guests, children friendly, no smoking please.

Jamestown/Conanicut Island is rich in open space and a tour around its rural roads reveals farms, salt marshes, and stunning water views. Jamestown is full of hidden treasures such as small beaches and winding trails. Beavertail Lighthouse juts dramatically into Rhode Island Sound from a rocky southern tip of the island. Jamestown is home to three marinas and many residents and visitors are sailors. Narragansett Bay is ideal for sailing, fishing, and kayaking. The village center is Narragansett Avenue, which runs from east to west with a marina at each end, and is lined with restaurants and stores. When you're not at the beach or on the water enjoying the ocean views, this small island town offers museums, art shows, concerts and sporting events. Newport makes a great day trip, just a ten minute drive across the bridge or by ferry in season. Providence is a 40 minute drive and offers a great cosmopolitan contrast. Visiting a nearby island is always fun. Its only a 30 minute drive to Point Judith to catch a fast ferry to Block Island, or 20 minutes to Quonset to catch the fast ferry to Martha's Vineyard. And for a more adventurous trip, it’s an hour drive to Woods Hole to catch the ferry to Nantucket.

Year Purchased: 2008

About: We took full ownership of our family's summer cottage in 2008. Since that time, with the help of a highly respected, local contractor, we have completed a full renovation of the cottage, and are presently continuing to enhance this historic property. Our motivation has always been to restore the comfort, beauty and charm back to the cottage, so that over the next hundred years, our children, and their children, etc. can continue building treasured family memories. It is now time to share this magical place with others.
