Beach houses come in many shapes and sizes in Newport, RI. Mansions adorn our coastline, condominiums overlook the harbor, and summer cottages line sandy roads leading to Hazards, Gooseberry and Bailey’s Beaches off Ocean Drive. While all offer the promise of lazy days on the shore, few can match the location, condition and charm of this restored bungalow on Almy Pond.
Not only is this newly renovated cottage on a pristine estuarial pond teeming with wild life, it’s also just four doors away from Bailey’s Beach, one of the most beautiful and exclusive beaches in the Northeast. One part of Bailey’s is a very private club, but the eastern end is a scenic stretch of sand accessible to neighbors by foot or bike.
In Newport, it’s rare to find an historic property on a pond within walking distance of a beach. In additon to its fantastic location, this cottage underwent a top to bottom renovation and its glistening new interior features bleached hardwoods, a designer kitchen, upscale baths, an inviting new deck and a lawn that stretches down to the water.
So come take a look, watch the sun set over the pond, and listen to the surf at Bailey’s. It’s the quintessential beach house. You may never want to leave!
