Populated by less than 100 shingle style houses, Shoreby Hill retains a quiet country feel from the neighborhood’s past life as a 19th-century farm. Transformed into a fashionable summer colony at the turn of the century, the neighborhood was designed in the fashion of the “garden city” movement, a planned, exclusive community with an emphasis on topography and natural beauty. Added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2011, Shoreby Hill’s size is kept small by its rolling landscape, with the hill offering access to the shore at Jamestown Harbor at its base.
Named for the large boulders that border the southern shore of Conanicut Island, today, the Dumplings is one of the biggest names in New England for luxury waterfront living, known for mansions like Round House and Clingstone. With sweeping views of Narragansett Bay, the Pell Bridge, and Newport Harbor, the largely residential area also offers excellent hiking along the nature trails at Fort Wetherhill and at the Audubon Society’s Racquet Road Refuge.
The northern portion of Conanicut Island makes up the newest development area in Jamestown. With properties only recently divided and land relatively plentiful, this is the opportune place to purchase or plan your own personal seaside estate.
