Property Photo


The “Mill House” c.1886 – “an artistic masterpiece of subtle charm”. Settled West-facing across the mouth of Sakonnet River w/ striking views of open ocean & rolling pastures, sits an iconic property known by the locals as the “Mill House”. An 1800's conversion of an old gristmill, first of its kind, turned into a year round residence of historical importance for its “method of construction & artistic collaboration”. The 3-story octagonal Mill Tower maintains all of the integrity from yesteryear featuring exposed beams, mahogany floors, oversized windows & artistic plasterwork of the famed American artist, Sydney Burleigh. The Tower suite, boasts panoramic views of the Atlantic looking over 150 acres of farmland, where you are able to see the Newport Mansions, the infamous Newport Pell Bridge, the sandy beaches of Sachuest Point. The 1st floor encompasses an open-floor plan living & dining room with a grand fireplace, library, kitchen, as well as deeply inset porches & large pane windows for taking in magnificent sunsets. The family compound includes a 4 bed, 2 bath, 1684 sq. ft. 3-season home, called the “Dinghy”. The Mill & Dinghy are set gracefully into the picturesque landscape and enjoy breathtaking seascape views from every room. A rare opportunity to become a steward of this amazing home, as the current family has been for over 130 years. Nearby Sakonnet Point Beaches. Potential for separate purchase of neighbors abutting land. $$ Rental Income Pot. Buyer to pay LCAT
