A Modern Shingle Style Home on the Rhode Island Coast

Text by Maria LaPiana
In iconic Shingle style, this relaxed family home is clad in weathered cedar with deep leaf-green trim, giving it the look and feel of a vintage beauty. But the 2,284 square foot Shingle style beach house, sited on a direct waterfront quarter-acre in Charlestown, R.I., was actually built in 1997. It has every amenity you’d expect—along with an open plan, three bedrooms, three full baths, and a spacious country kitchen with both classic (beadboard) and contemporary (granite) notes. The sunny yellow main level living and dining areas are cheerful, light and bright. The traditional fluted fireplace surround is studded with natural river rock. Because there are wide, floor-to-ceiling windows everywhere, it feels as though the sea is always in the room with you. In fact, every space—from screened porch to master suite—is perpetually awash in ocean blue. Escape. Entertain. Do both. This home is peaceful, coastal-comfy and guest-friendly (there’s a bunkroom, too!). The property is listed for $3,150,000 with Raymond Mott of Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty in Charlestown, RI. For more information go to the property website or call (401) 364-6700, ext. 6226.
