Northpoint, a classic seaside New England stone and shingle cottage epitomizes classic, timeless style with its elegant details and beauty, yet remains unpretentious, warm and welcoming. This waterfront estate admirably balances setting and style, as the peaceful splendor of its gardens and water views blend seamlessly with the interior’s rich wood, finely crafted wainscoting, custom cabinetry and millwork, glass, and native stone.
Completely redesigned, expanded, and reconstructed in 2007, this lovely seaside estate is thoughtfully sited on 1.57 acres on the East Passage of Narragansett Bay with 215 feet of shore frontage. Graced with 6,400 square feet of understated elegance, Northpoint provides a wonderfully expansive residence that includes five bedrooms with en-suite baths and three lavettes, gourmet kitchen, additional detached heated two-bay garage currently used as an artist's studio, heated pool with cascading waterfall spa, cabana with bath, three moorings and a deep-water dock with a lift. Embraced by the natural beauty of its environment, this property is located in one of the most sought-after islands of America’s East Coast: Jamestown, Rhode Island.
From the splendid courtyard a welcoming entry foyer with 10 foot vertical-gain fir ceilings flows into the formal dining room graced with custom built-in cabinetry and is open to the step-down living room warmed by a majestic floor-to-ceiling corner stone fireplace. French doors access the charming wrap-around covered stone porch with fireplace while stunning Bay views provide a peaceful setting perfect for outdoor entertaining or just relaxing and enjoying the spectacular views and boating activity on the Bay.
The warm and inviting eat-in epicurean kitchen engages with its views at every turn and features granite counters with a cooking island for casual entertaining, professional-grade appliances, a butler’s pantry and mud room. French doors from the kitchen provide direct access to the four-season porch which overlooks the shimmering Bay and opens to both the warp-around stone porch and swimming pool with cascading waterfall spa. Also on this level is a splendid master suite with a sumptuous bath, a private study, and a powder room.
Ascending to the second level a delightful library with custom cabinetry and sitting area communicates comfort and style. A serene second master suite is a private haven with lavish bath, wooden vaulted ceilings, and a private deck capturing captivating coastal views.
