MLS # 1283823 - Act Und Contract
Steeped in history is this highly sought-after waterfront property, formerly known as Coachman’s Cottage and apart of the Henszey/Altamira Estate, is being offered to purchase for the first time since 1906. It is also known for being the gorgeous backdrop and set of the movie “Wind” that premiered in 1992, as well as being a part of several recorded episodes of the TV show “Providence”. This magnificent cottage offers captivating views of Narragansett Bay, private deep-water dock, private sandy beach, and two outbuildings, previously known as the bathhouse and boathouse. Nestled on nearly an acre of land, the landscape provides an unsurpassed private retreat with a rolling lawn that leads to your very own sandy beach and dock. After a day on the water, tie up the boat and dig your toes in the sand while looking upon the Newport Bridge, Clingstone, and the many vessels navigating the waters. At the top of the lot sits the bungalow style cottage designed by New York Architects Selfridge & Obermaier. The cottage was used by the late owner’s Coachman in the early 1900’s, and includes over 2,000 sq. ft. of living space with the original stone fireplace and custom woodwork intact. Looking towards the water, to the left-hand side, the former bathhouse and boathouse rest. The expansive boathouse is approximately 1,760 sq. ft. of unfinished space. Endless opportunities await at this incredible property.
