About the property

4 Bedroom, Historic Cape On 14 Acres / Walk To Beach

Built in 1720, this cozy farmhouse is a cool summer retreat for those seeking a simple quiet vacation. The house is located on 14 acres of fields and woodlands adjacent to the expansive Clayhead nature preserve and other large private holdings. Take the 10 minute nature trail walk to Clayhead beach to swim and sunbathe or continue a further 300 yards south to the famous Mansion Beach.The trail also brings you under the Clayhead bluffs where you can enjoy the best striped bass fishing in the world. Walk north under the bluffs for about an hour to reach the iconic surfcaster's destination of Sandy Point or stalk nearer coves for 40lb bass.You can also follow the meandering trail along the top of cliffs with exceptional eastern views of the ocean, the ferry coming and going and Old Harbor.

Reaching town takes about 5 minutes by car or 15 by bicycle.

Guests are allowed access to a high-end propane grill.

A shaded picnic table and set of lawn chairs allows guests to enjoy their meals beneath 100 year old maples.

The large front yard is ideal for lawn sports.

The nearby Block Island Club offers weekly rates for sailboat rentals and tennis court access. Cars, Kayaks and Bicycles and Standup Paddle Boards may be rented in town.

Accessing the bedrooms requires the use of historic 1720's staircases which are rather steep. They are not recommended for the elderly or infirm or young children. One ground level bedroom is available for those who are limited physically.

A barn on the property is occupied by owners.

This charming 18th century cape is nestled amongst ancient stone walls in the quiet shade of a mature maple grove on Clayhead Trail. The setting is extremely private as the house sits on 14 acres; 12 of which is in conservation. A 10 minute walk through a nature preserve brings you to a beautiful sheltered cove, 300 yards north of the famous Mansion Beach. Quiet, quaint, shady,cool, historic, private setting within walking distance to Crescent Beach.
