"Browning Cottages" - Matunuck - Once in a life time opportunity to purchase one of the (5) iconic Queen Anne Victorian cottages on the sand dunes of "Browning's Beach". The current structure, a portion of a much larger Victorian, is being offered for the 1st time in over 60+ years. The Queen Anne style home, with wooden frames and shingles, capture the architectural style of the period. This period cottage enjoys the sounds and serenity of the surf line which is unparalleled elsewhere along the miles of shoreline of RI. The location is "magical" with inland salt water ponds to the north, and expansive 180 degree views of the Sound, beyond to Block Island. The structure has been raised above the dunes, set upon concrete pillars, wraparound decks offering views to the East, South & West. Keeping intact the rustic beams, multiple stairways, wood accents, 2 brick fireplaces, the house offers 3 bedrooms, a den w/balcony,3 1/2 baths providing views of the water from every room. Enjoy morning walks along the beach, or casting for striped bass in the surf, to paddle boarding/kayaking on Cards Pond tranquil waters. These cottages have defined the Matunuck Seascape since the turn of the century, and have created many memories for generations of many prominent Rhode Island families including; the Noyes, Knight, Bontecou and Chafees.A setting not to be matched by any other along the shores of Rhode Island, this is a chance to experience a seaside lifestyle like no other!
