Feel like a king or queen of your realm from this magnificent contemporary home with a 3-car garage at 4 Lab Hill Road in Charlestown.
Perched 115 feet above sea level on just over 15 extremely private acres of woodlands and a professionally-landscaped yard, enjoy stunning 180-degree views of the Atlantic Ocean and Block Island! Its 2-story edifice is a culmination of angled roof lines and cedar shingles with a stone chimney and pillars.
The long driveway leads to a large parking area. Come around front and stand on the lawn or front deck to see the breathtaking ocean views in the distance. Enter into a foyer with a coat closet and floor-to-ceiling windows to take in the panoramic scene. Continue on into this beautifully-appointed home with an open layout, 9-foot ceilings, crown molding, and recessed lighting.
As if lifted from a magazine, this sun-filled 3,408-square-foot retreat is perfect. Its gourmet kitchen offers solid maple-wood KraftMaid cabinetry with dovetail drawers, granite countertops with stone backsplash, a center island with a dining bar and pendant lighting, and a food pantry. Its stainless-steel appliances include double-convection ovens, a dishwasher, refrigerator, and Garland commercial-grade, 6-burner gas cooktop stove. Certainly a chef’s dream kitchen, it also provides a range hood that is vented outside.
To the right is a large living area with a unique white ceiling fan made with fishing rod elements and sailing fabric. The raised hearth fireplace with a wood-burning insert is surrounded by a wood/granite façade. If you prefer gas, it is already plumbed for that as well.
An adjacent dining area with an overhead chandelier completes this ideal entertaining area. Beautiful maple hardwood flooring flows throughout this main level. From almost anywhere in this open area, you can enjoy picturesque water views through large, tinted Andersen windows with custom shades.
Double glass doors lead to a 3-season sunroom with gorgeous slate flooring, and yes, more fantastic views of the ocean. A glass door exits to the front yard.
The first floor also includes a laundry room with above cabinetry neatly tucked behind a door, a charming half-bath with a pedestal sink, and a linen closet.
The second-floor landing featuring maple-wood flooring leads to 4 large carpeted bedrooms with vaulted ceilings, and overhead ceiling fans. The massive master bedroom suite features double glass doors leading to a private deck with ocean views to enjoy your morning coffee, as well as 2 double closets, and a good-sized walk-in closet with shelving/drawers and drop-down attic stairs. Two can easily get ready for the day in its tiled ensuite, which includes heated floors, a 7-foot-long cherrywood vanity with a granite top and double sinks, as well as a water closet and a 4-by-7-foot, glass-enclosed shower with a granite seat, 5 wall shower heads and an overhead rainfall showerhead. Two other bedrooms offer fantastic ocean views, while 1 overlooks the lovely backyard.
The main full-bath available to guests features a maple vanity with granite top and a 6-foot, extra deep ThermoSpas therapeutic tub to relax in after a long day.
If you don’t need 4 bedrooms, transform one into an art studio, office, or exercise room.
For more living space, finish off the walkout lower level, which already has double glass doors. Or, utilize it for storage and playing billiards and ping pong.
You’ll feel like royalty with all the extra features created by the builder/owner. Built in 2001 with steel-beam construction, this custom-designed, well-insulated home must be seen to be fully appreciated. In addition to grand ocean views in almost every room, a chef’s dream kitchen, gleaming wood flooring on the main level and spa bathrooms, it offers solid-wood doors, recessed lighting and ceiling fans throughout this meticulously-maintained home.
Stay comfortable year round with central air-conditioning and a propane-fired forced hot water baseboard heating system. Plus, with a 1,000-gallon underground propane gas tank, you can buy gas from wherever you wish. It also provides 200-amp electrical service, a 4-zone Buderus hot water storage tank boiler, 2 wells (one for drinking water and one for irrigation), generator hookup, and is plumbed for a gas grill, fireplace, and dryer. It also provides security, water purification, central vacuum, and septic systems. Additionally, you’ll enjoy unobstructed views with underground utilities. And since you’re so high above sea level, there is no need for flood insurance.
Two outbuildings on the property include a 12-by-16-foot shed and a vertical wood-sided 26-by-40-foot workshop with a garage door, air-conditioning/heating features, 3-phase 440-volt electrical service, and space for a boat and a car. Or, use it as an art/writing studio.
