Just outside of Town and near popular swimming beaches is this classic Block Island cottage. A textbook front porch is perfect for “tea and people watching," says the owner. Built in 1917 and renovated over the years, this four bedroom, two and a half bath home provides the ideal space in an ideal location. Open floor plan for the kitchen and dining room allow for “huge family dinners that spill out from the dining table to the porches.” Just off the kitchen is a family/TV room, so family can pursue separate pursuits and still be together. Upstairs there are three bedrooms with a shared bath. The lowest level, renovated in 2011, offers a large sleeping & play area with a full bath. The back yard boasts a large outdoor shower. The real treasure is the separate year round cottage that allows for additional income or for added freedom. Built in 2007, this 984 square foot cottage has one bedroom, one bath, sleeping loft and its own kitchenette and laundry. Both homes are exemplar rentals and offer this property as an investment not only for your portfolio but also for your spirit. Allow time, time to linger on the beach reading, time to walk into town to shop or for a bite to eat, time for the ocean and salt breezes to remind you how to put your feet up and slow down.
