House of the week: Panoramic view, private beach


With panoramic views of the Sakonnet River, a private beach and space for a mooring or dock, this home in Portsmouth's Common Fence Point neighborhood is seaside living at its finest.

Built in 1924, the home at 5 Narragansett Blvd. has many renovations while keeping its period detail. Situated in a private setting, the 1,990-square-foot house has three bedrooms and a bath and a half.

An updated kitchen has granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and beautiful hardwood floors. Skylights bring the outside in to the contemporary Cape Cod-style home with French doors to a backyard overlooking the water. A stone patio and custom gazebo offer outdoor entertaining spaces.

Built high above the water, the home has unobstructed views of the Sakonnet River. Stairs lead to the water and a private beach. There is potential for a mooring and dock out the back door from the 21,780-square-foot property.

The home is available for the asking price of $835,000. For more information or to schedule a showing, contact Dawn McCauley at 401-862-6348.
