The Property

Epitomizing the bygone era of grand seaside summer homes in New England, the Grinnell-Gerry House is rich in history. Beginning in 1870, engineer and businessman Frederick Grinnell transformed the original farmhouse into an expansive mansion. Following Grinnell’s ownership, Senator Peter Goelet Gerry summered here. A distinct study in the architecture of its time, four chimneys serving seven fireplaces rise above the multi-gabled roofline.

Wraparound porches and patios gracefully unite the interior and exterior living spaces. With eight bedrooms and multiple sitting, living, and dining rooms with water views, the options for relaxing or entertaining abound. Unique to waterfront homes in this area is the multi-family zoning for the attached two-story guest house with a private entry, family area, kitchen, two bedrooms, one and one-half baths and laundry. A standalone carriage house boasts a four-bay garage with unlimited potential above. Sited on over two waterfront acres, this home’s natural setting is second to none. Enjoy your private in-ground swimming pool or stroll the park-like grounds. Relax on the lawn for Tuesday regattas, fireworks, and magnificent sunsets. Just three doors down, Warwick Country Club offers a premiere 18-hole Donald Ross golf course with tennis, swimming, sailing, and dining. Walk to local farms or ride your bike to Rocky Point State Park and local marinas. Your perfect escape is just 15 minutes from TF Green airport and easy highway access.
