The lure of waterfront living continues unabated in Rhode Island, as Lila Delman Real Estate reports the sale of 56 Green Hill Ocean Avenue in South Kingstown, a premier oceanfront property. The stunning residence sold for $3,900,000, the highest sale ever recorded in South Kingstown according to Rhode Island Statewide Multiple Listing Service. The rare oceanfront house, on 2.35 beachfront acres, with 310 feet of sandy beach, also boasts over an acre on Green Hill Pond, a respite for boating and fishing.

Lila Delman Real Estate was both the listing and selling company. John Hodnett and Ruth Bellino in the Narragansett office represented the sellers, and Jeff Sincoski and Lori Joyal in the Watch Hill office represented the buyer.

According to Mr. Hodnett, “Green Hill is a beautiful beach resort community and is widely considered the hidden jewel in South County. Set along country roads and saltwater ponds, the area also affords beautiful hiking and bicycling trails. It has excellent access to Newport, Narragansett and the village of Watch Hill. We are happy to have negotiated this record sale.”

The Green Hill residence boasts over 6000 square feet of magnificent living spaces finished to the highest standards, with panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean and Block Island. The home is architecturally designed to capture the beauty of the water from every vantage point. The spacious open floor plan, perfect for entertaining, includes a gourmet kitchen with top of the line appliances and a wonderful butler’s pantry. The master bedroom suite on the second floor is a secluded retreat, offering a stone fireplace, a huge walk-in closet, luxurious bath and French doors leading to its own waterside deck.

Last Month, Lila Delman sold a Watch Hill waterfront mansion to Kevin Wendle, a major film and television producer who co-founded E! Online, CNET and Fox Broadcasting Company. That property is two doors down from the home of Grammy and CMT award winning artist Taylor Swift, and had an asking price of $11 million.
