Atlantic views abound across this Rhode Island beach house in South Kingstown, which features a topsy-turvy layout and floor-to-ceiling windows.
The boxy timber-clad waterfront home features a ‘reverse layout’ with the living room and kitchen on the upper level to maximise ocean views – including a huge deck area that acts as an outside lounge.
Three bedrooms are tucked below, with large ‘hatch’ shutters that provide complete privacy and shelter the long, shorefront house from the harsh elements. The beach house is elevated above the flood plain, perching on concrete beams and screw piles and bookended by outdoor spaces.
Painted beadboard ceilings and rustic oak beams cross the sustainable home’s white-washed interiors, ready for the new owners to put their stamp on. The South Kingstown home is listed via Sotheby’s International Realty for $2.5m.
