It’s not always about the view. Sure, it’s great to be able to look out virtually every window in a house and see Rhode Island’s most beautiful waterways, but a home needs more than a view. A home needs to be inviting. The inside should be just as alluring as the view. In fact, the inside should complement the view by offering a place people will enjoy coming together, creating memories and living life to its fullest. The spectacular property at 180 Clearview Road in Charlestown is exactly such a home.
Located on a private, two-acre corner lot along Foster Cove in Charlestown, 180 Clearview Road is a spacious home with a beach feel made for year-round comfort. Its location on Foster Cove is at once beautiful and rich with exciting options for boating, fishing and accessing private nearby beaches. Not to mention that the view over Foster Cove is gorgeously taken advantage of at every window and every corner within the home itself.
Foster Cove opens into Ninigret Pond which opens into the Charlestown Breachway and the open ocean. 180 Clearview Road is one of the few homes in the area allowed to have its own private dock, making boating to a private stretch of nearby East Beach easy. Across the Cove sits acres of preserved land in the Ninigret Wildlife Refuge. The privacy and natural serenity of the area is considered among Rhode Island’s most beautiful.
Inside, the homes spacious kitchen opens out into a great room; the spacious central area of the home that is custom built for entertaining and sharing good times with friends and family. The kitchen is wide, with a large granite island and granite countertops throughout. A built in breakfast nook with bench seating sits at the end of the room with panoramic views looking out over sunrises along the cove.
The kitchen flows seamlessly into a large dining room that extends out into a great room with extra-tall ceilings and tall windows that filter in a warmth of natural sunlight. Wood floors are complimented by thick exposed beams along the ceiling. A few steps lead down from the great room into a sunken living room with a raised, stone-built, wood-burning fireplace at its center. The grand fireplace is situated near to a wide alcove where bay windows look out over the homes beautifully landscaped front yard.
Along the outside of the living room, great room and kitchen is an incredible wrap-around deck meeting at the corner of the home in a spacious screened-in three-season porch. The views along the deck and porch are unsurpassed. Unsurpassed that is, until you reach the master suite.
A wooden spiral staircase in the great room leads up to a master suite that outshines even the finest resorts. With wood, vaulted ceilings rising above the large bedroom, sunlight from extra-wide windows and skylights illuminate the space with reflections from the expansive water views. A large private deck and smaller balcony off of the room have screen doors offering cool sea breezes for hot summer nights. The master bathroom is surprisingly spacious as well, with a walk-in shower and a separate tile-inlayed Jacuzzi tub looking out to the cove. A deep walk-in closet off the room provides lots of extra storage.
Back downstairs, the other side of the home has an equally large master suite with wide windows with cove views as well as sliding doors leading out to the homes wrap-around deck. This spacious suite has two wide, extra deep closets and its own private bathroom with his and her sinks. Two more spacious bedrooms at this end of the home share another full bathroom with both a walk-in shower and separate tub/shower combination.
The basement of 180 Clearview Road is also a spacious surprise. This full-finished, walk-out basement has two separate bedrooms and two more full bathrooms, bringing the homes full-bathroom count to five. The second of the two basement bedrooms has built in bunk beds perfect for guests, or visiting grandchildren. Between the two bedrooms sits a family room with its own sunken living room and a stone built, wood-burning fireplace. A two car garage also connects to the basement, which is full of storage space and amenities including a laundry room and central air conditioning.
