The Property

Wotherspoon Cottage (1897). A noted Colonial Revival nestled in a private, park like setting surrounded by mature landscaping with specimen trees, and a lush lawn enveloped in historic stone walls, and rock outcroppings. This iconic shingled residence has been thoughtfully renovated with all modern amenties yet still retains its 19th century understated elegance and charm. The inviting living room with fireplace and a cathedral ceiling opens to a patio overlooking the East Passage towards Newport.

French doors in the dining room lead to an enclosed patio for outdoor entertaining. Chef’s kitchen with stainless appliances, custom kitchen cabinetry with leathered quartzite countertops, and a cozy breakfast area. Beautiful wood paneled den/family room. The second floor master bedroom has an east facing deck, generous closet space and en suite bathroom with radiant heat flooring. There are also two additional bedrooms with a shared bathroom, an office with fireplace and a laundry area on the second floor. The third floor has two storage areas, a small bathroom, and a sitting room which can double as a bedroom for overflow company. The property has been updated with new windows and dormers, central air conditioning, a whole house generator, lawn with irrigation system, alarm system, and an electric fence. There is a two car garage and a charming stone potting shed. Easy access to the neighborhood beach, the highway and bridges.
