Over ten miles of panoramic views of bucolic farmlands of Little Compton across the Sakonnet River provides the perfect name for this waterfront home in Portsmouth: “Perspective.” A 30-foot high stone fireplace anchors the great room in grand style, and the view from expansive floor-to-ceiling windows from much of the house provides a perfect perspective over a rolling green lawn that leads downhill to a private beach.
Built in 1995, This classic New England shingle-style home includes four bedrooms and four-and-a-half baths over nearly 5,000 square feet, a chef’s kitchen with a fireplace, a finished basement and a three-car garage—all totally custom built with exquisite finish work.
Located on Indian Avenue, one of the loveliest residential streets on Aquidneck Island, the neighborhood is exclusive and quiet, and yet in the center of everything that makes this area a wonderful place to live and raise a family—full-time or just in the summer. There’s Newport, of course, with shopping, museums and art galleries, and too many great restaurants to count. There are the white-sand beaches of Middletown, and hiking, birdwatching and wildlife viewing at Sachuest Wildlife Refuse and the Norman Bird Sanctuary, just a short drive away. Golfing at Carnegie Abbey, Green Valley, and Newport National is close by, as is Polo at the Glen, Greenvale Vineyards, and a profusion of farm stands where you can pick up delicious seasonal produce, shellfish, or grass-fed, free-range meats. All in all, a wonderful lifestyle, viewed from a lovely “Perspective.”
