This elegant, 7.1 acre waterfront estate is located on the southeastern tip of Jamestown. A gated, cobblestone-accented drive with professionally landscaped gardens leads to the stately 8,008 sq. ft. contemporary home. Designed by local architect William Burgin, it was originlly built in 1996 with north and south wings added in 2006.
The west facing entrance, a beautiful field stone archway, with covered walkway leads into a welcoming two-story entry foyer with an elegant spiral staircase to the left and a spacious office to the right. Straight ahead French doors lead to an extensive bluestone patio offering unobstructed water views of the entrance to Narragansett Bay and the ocean. To the right a spacious great room with a fireplace offers more formal entertaining, also wonderful ocean views. On the left is a chef's kitchen with center island, open to an informal dining area, seating area with fireplace, and doors leading out to the patio.
The patio itself extends from the north end of the residence to the south end and includes an area for grilling, a spa accentuated by a waterfall, a sitting area that surrounds a fire pit plus two stairways, each leading to the lush manicured lawn and fenced backyard.
The house offers ten foot ceilings, two gas fireplaces, and terrazzo floors with wood inlay. There are twelve rooms including three en suite bedrooms plus a private first floor master bedroom wing, a total of five full baths and two half baths. A two car garage is part of the main house. In 2008 a sparate three car garage, also a Burgin design, was constructed with top of the line amenities.
Jamestown, also known as Conanicut Island, is a bridge from the mainland, a bridge (only minutes) to Newport, thirty-five minutes to Providence, an hour and a quarter to Boston and three and a half hours to New York. It quietly boasts a quality of life seldom found elsewhere.
