This exceptional property features a circa 1880's, stately Colonial home with an updated interior for the perfect Block Island retreat. The spacious main floor includes a renovated classic living room with a wood burning, brick fireplace, an attractive kitchen with cathedral ceiling, Crown Point cabinetry, soapstone countertops and French doors leading to a sunny patio, entry hall with powder room, a private dining room and a light-filled master bedroom with marble full bath. The unique second level harkens back to when the property was a working farm and housed orphans to work the farm living on the second floor of the house. Three bedrooms, one full and one half bath complete this space.
Behind the house is the fully renovated, original 1880's barn with living quarters on the second floor. The gorgeous family gathering room has a Post & Beam design for summer parties and getaways. Second floor also has one bedroom, full bath and loft area accessed by an architecturally interesting spiral stairway.
This magical setting has southerly views overlooking beautiful Rodman's Hollow to the Atlantic Ocean, fields with stonewalls running through out and a picturesque pond to the west that the family has enjoyed for swimming, canoeing and fishing. Abutting conservation land to the east, this is the quintessential Block Island property to cherish for years to come.
Block Island is located in the Atlantic Ocean about 13 miles south of RI and is about 10 square miles. The Nature Conservancy named Block Island as one of twelve sites in its list of "The Last Great Places" in the Western Hemisphere.
