Discover paradise: A magical, oceanfront cottage

A magical destination awaits you with an oceanfront cottage at 919 Matunuck Beach Road in South Kingstown. Unwind with the rhythmic sights and sounds of waves advancing towards the beach, only to retreat again. A bit farther down the shoreline is a favorite spot for surfers. Watch them as they ride the curls.

Clad in cedar shingles with white trim, this home offers a huge front porch and a large rear deck, as well as a 2-car garage tucked underneath it.

Side doors lead into this 716-square-foot getaway, which was wonderfully remodeled in 2012. Straight back is a charming living room with a cathedral ceiling. Enjoy breathtaking views of the ocean through multiple windows. Built in 1925, this beach house is beautifully furnished with a modern couch, chair, side tables, a coffee table, and television.

The adjacent dining area offers overhead lighting and a charming setting for family dinners. The adjoining kitchen features attractive light wood cabinetry and a broom closet. It also includes a refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, and counter space for preparing meals.

Off the kitchen is a convenient laundry room with a washer and dryer. It will be so easy to multi-task: throw a load in while watching television or preparing food. Gray laminate tile flooring beautifies the kitchen and laundry room, while laminate wood flooring flows throughout the rest of the house.

A master bedroom provides a double bed, night stand, and bureau. A slightly smaller second bedroom is also fully furnished. Both bedrooms offer closets with shelving above. Nearby is a lovely full bath with ceramic tile flooring and a stand-up shower. Multiple windows in almost every room create a sunny atmosphere.

With your own private sandy beach, plus front and rear decks, think of all the amazing celebrations you could have and the memories you could make over a lifetime. You won’t want to leave the rear deck. Its view of the sparkling ocean and Block Island in the distance is spectacular! Watch the sun rise and all the stars come out at night in the immense open sky.

After a day of clamming or playing volleyball on the beach, there’s no need to bring all that sand inside. Simply rinse off in the enclosed outdoor shower.

There’s also plenty of storage space in the basement and attic. Need more living space? Increase the square footage by building upwards: add a second floor. Enjoy this delightful cottage year round, or as a periodic getaway for family and friends. Additionally, this prime beachfront location is a good investment property. It has a documented annual rental history of $30,000.

No longer must you endure expensive hotel costs and traffic congestion before you can relax. Come home to this special retreat every day or just when you need it. Feel like venturing out? There is much to do in the area. Walk numerous trails and observe wildlife in its natural habitat at Trustom Pond National Wildlife Refuge in South Kingstown. Take a ferry to Block Island. Hop aboard a charter boat and go deep-sea fishing or whale watching in Narragansett. Visit the Roger Williams Park Zoo in Providence, the Newport Mansions, or one of the magnificent state beaches. There is so much to see and do in Rhode Island!

Situated on .17 acres, this insulated 2-bedroom cottage is connected to city water and provides 200-amp electrical service, central air-conditioning, and an electric heat pump for forced hot air heating. Modern windows throughout this oceanfront beach house make cleaning them very easy.

Additionally, its septic holding tanks were replaced in 2012. Fully furnished and appointed right down to the coffee pot, toaster and blender, just bring your suitcases to your new abode at 919 Matunuck Beach Road in South Kingstown.

Indeed, this is a very special home. Nothing compares to oceanfront property with your own private beach and the vast ocean beyond. Enjoy the best of both worlds. Bask by the seaside in this beautiful cottage, while still being just 15 minutes from schools, 10 minutes from the hospital, and 20 minutes from many restaurants and shopping venues.
