It was the opportunity of a lifetime for me to buy this beach house on a peninsula with water views from every window and a private beach. Lovely hardwood floors, walls are knotty pine. Careful restoration and updating of a period 1938 beach house. Casually but beautifully decorated with Heywood Wakefield American semi-antiques from this area, seagrass rug, and persian rugs. Kitchen updated June 2014, and new rugs, sofa and lamps June 2014, with some new photos.
In order to keep the property well kept, we are selective about to whom we rent the house. Please press the blue button "SEND EMAIL" and we will email you the application. We do not participate in the book now feature.
The house has central air conditioning, which is not the norm in RI. Most homes have no AC, or have window units in the bedrooms only.
Relax in the living room and watch the ocean or walk to the water from the back door. This is a great place to 'de-stress', just sit anywhere and watch the water and the sailboats. Watching the sunset from the living room and the lighted Mount Hope Bridge is so wonderful!
Four bedrooms ( master is 14 ft by 10 ft with an attached dressing/ bonus room that is 10' x 8), second bedroom is 17' x 10') two baths, two large living rooms ( each 21 ft X 13 ft) gas fireplace turns on instantly, sunroom (16' X 12') large dining room (14' x 12) kitchen, patio. Windows all around the house to enjoy the water views from every direction. Detached 2 car garage. FLOOR PLAN-- SEE LAST 2 PHOTOS. Maximum occupancy is eight people.
House has 2080 square feet, and is on two lots which gives a feeling of spaciousness and privacy. The house is on a no outlet (dead end)street, so no traffic. Ideal for a large family, and the yard is great for children.

Also a drive to LARRY ELLISON OF ORACLE Beechwood Mansion at 580 Bellvue. This is his private home, drive by or walk by only.

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: I love the sound of the waves and the smell of the salt air! Also the boats, and seagulls, fresh lobsters, and the beach, clean air and quiet! We never liked 'driving to the beach', finding parking and lugging all the things, having to trudge off to go to the restroom. So now we can just walk out the door!
Why the Owner Chose Portsmouth, RI, USA:
It was a once in a lifetime opportunity to buy a house on a peninsula so that it has water views on all four sides, and a private beach. It is just instant relaxation no matter where you sit in the house Such a good place to "chill" We wanted to be close to Newport but have peace and quiet at night. Also my son likes to fish and kayak from behind the house. Just walk to the water.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Central AC Every single window has a water view since we are on a peninsula! Just walk out the back door to the water! This house has knotty pine walls reflective of the time it was built and careful restorations and updating. It feels very 'beachy.' Cocktail hour in the living room watching the sun set over the water is really special.
