About 231 Carnegie Harbor Dr, Portsmouth Rhode Island
WELCOME HOME to your unrivalled opportunity to own a piece of the Carnegie Abbey experience. Unsurpassed in its standards for finishes and superior construction standards, Carnegie Abbey invites you to discover all that living behind the gates of New England’s premier sporting estate and living life to the fullest. Home is being offered fully furnished with Club Membership and gated access and deeded rights to Tower Pool. Adjacent 0.9 acre lot and 75' boat slip also available for sale.
Your opportunity is now to own this "2006 Coastal Living Magazine Summer Home Idea" designed by Cambridge, Massachusetts, architect Marcus Gleysteen built to look as though it had belonged here long before anything else. Sited to capture views of Narragansett Bay, the house embraces its site with all rooms pointed to the sea.
A gently curved portico welcomes you to a gleaming mahogany front door that invites you inside this seaside masterpiece.
Immediately upon entering, an elegant yet informal coastal flair is felt with the rich wood tones and coffered ceilings coupled with built in display shelves with beaded board backing. Bright, airy and casually elegant, the interior reflects fine New England style as blue tones take center stage and play off the home’s yacht-like appeal. French doors connect first floor rooms to outdoors and allow ease of access to covered porches, lush grounds, salty air and unobstructed water views. The home’s fiber cement shingle looks just like the real thing, but will hold paint longer than wood. The composite decking is made of reclaimed wood and plastics and won’t split, rot or warp.
The kitchen is the hub of this floor plan. An island outfitted with a counter bar accommodates extra company and the best part of all is the chef can take in the exceptional view too. Cobalt appliances make a statement against white walls and cabinetry, and a pale aqua coats the island.
The great family room houses an impressive ten foot fieldstone fireplace and a wall of windows offering sun-drenched year round comfort.
The second floor is home to three bedroom suites all of which enjoy balcony terraces with exceptional Bay views. The master bedroom has an additional gas fireplace, double dressing rooms/closets and a master bath defined by luxurious, sophisticated materials. Thin borders of pale-blue glass tile frame subway tile around the tub, which is crowned with a slab of gleaming white Carrara marble.
Separate guest suite allows many options as does the first floor office suite with full adjoining bath. The basement is full of fun with its two screen gaming screens, large full screen TV with reclining sofa, wet bar, seven-hundred gallon tropical fish tank, additional laundry area and storage.
The more you think about it the more one realized that owning this residence could be the “investment” of a lifetime. Waterfront living in your own seaside resort…that’s what Carnegie Abbey residences are all about.
