Gorgeous bay views from this Portsmouth hillside


There's nothing quite like watching the sunset over Narragansett Bay — it's one of the things that makes Rhode Island such a popular destination during the summer months. Now imagine taking in that view every night, year-round, from your own home.

This four-bedroom, 3,000 square-foot contemporary at 182 Armando Drive enjoys unsurpassed panoramic water views from every room.  Situated on a lush green hillside that rolls down to the tranquil waters of Narragansett Bay, the home is located in Portsmouth's desirable Kings Grant area, right next door to the exclusive Carnegie Abbey Club and Marina.

The large foyer features a grand, custom-built staircase which leads to the second floor and its three bedrooms and full bath. The open floor plan on the first level faces the water, and is the perfect spot for entertaining. Large windows, skylights, and a cathedral ceiling ensure the home is filled with bright, warm light.

The kitchen leads out to an amazing wrap-around deck and is a perfect spot to enjoy your morning coffee as well as spectacular evening sunsets. The first floor also includes a spacious master suite with a large bath, and a home office.

Mature, well-maintained landscaping surrounds the home, and includes flowering and ornamental trees and shrubs. The saltwater shoreline is a short walk downhill. Access to Route 24 is moments away, making for an easy commute to Providence and Boston. A short drive in the opposite direction brings you to the beaches of Middletown, the bucolic trails of the Norman Bird Sanctuary and the Sachuest Wildlife Refuge, and the restaurants, shops, mansions, and museums of Newport.
